Shandong Luneng form and stats

Home games in the Super League have been a walk in the park for Shandong Luneng so far, with 34 points won from 12 matches; 11 wins, 1 draw and 0 losses. After failing to beat Wuhan Three Towns here at Jinan Olympic Sports Center Stadium, Shandong has put together a very nice winning streak on their own turf with five wins in a row.

Shandong Luneng faced defeat in their previous match, away at Chengdu Qianbao (1-2). Up until that defeat this team had gone nine consecutive league meetings without a loss. The versatile forward Cryzan edged out all the other footballers in that fixture and managed a match rating of 7.74 out of 10. Cryzan scored one goal and dribled past the opponent 1 of 2 times.

Before that, a nice away win at Qingdao Jonoon. A FA Cup game.

Goal party? We don't know about this one, but we do know that 12 of the 14 most recent league games with this team has seen three or more goals.

Some members of the home team might already be thinking of their next match, the Super League game versus Cangzhou Mighty Lions in only four days. This game is also played here at Jinan Olympic Sports Center Stadium.
