Manuel Pellegrini’s Hebei China Fortune will receive Shandong Luneng this Saturday in a key match to get the third position of the Chinese Superleague.
Although the team from Hebei has a four points advantage over the team from Jinan, we must say that Shandong Luneng has played one game less. It means that if Shandong wins the duel against Hebei n Saturday, they will have a one point disadvantage with one less game.
The third position of the Chinese Superleague is crucial, because it gives access to the Asian Football Confederation Champions League.
Shandong Luneng is having an uneven path, while Pellegrini’s men were in a winning streak, until the defeat at leader’s home (Guangzhou) the last day by 2-0.
It’s a pride for Football Impact to see how its clients are battling for the most important positions in such an important competition as Superleague.
