Description: SHN Vs SHD Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Sides in a soup turn to each other in a bid to regain lost momentum.

Well on their way to top spot in Group A of the Chinese Super League, Shandong Luneng have seen their last couple of defeats throw their plans up in the air. From recording three wins on the spin to falling to two straight defeats, the side finds itself languishing in third spot at the moment.

The results have pushed the side six point behind top spot with Guangzhou Evergrande refusing to ease up at the moment. Their form increases the pressure on Luneng if they are to keep challenging for a spot in first place with the team needing to curb its losing spree at the earliest plausible.

Despite their decline in form, the only reason Luneng have managed to keep hanging onto third place is due to the demise of their opponents of the day. With four winless results on the spin, Shanghai Shenhua have failed to cover up the lost ground separating the two points to see Luneng hold a neat four point lead ahead of Shenhua.

SHN Vs SHD Dream11 Probable Winner

The dreary performance they doled out in attack against Shenzhen perfectly documented Shenhua’s downtick in the league. The side has offered absolutely nothing when it comes to scoring across its last three encounters, laggard and languid displays which have seen them plummet down into 4th place.

Its this predicament which will see them be resigned to a defeat today as well to see their jeopardy further in the competition.

 Dream 11 Picks


Shanghai Shenhua’s Zeng Cheng will hold onto his spot in our side as the goal-keeper. The shot stopper turned out to be his side’s match winner the last time around as he pulled off a sensational performance to protect his side’s post and instil in place a cleansheet for the club.


When the group’s finest defence goes locking heads with a side that has scored the solitary goal in its last three encounters, there’s bound to be no prizes for guessing the outcome of this matchup. Shandong Luneng have an extremely favourable showdown on their hands today, one which will see them come out unscathed and speckle free.

A side which has let in a measly 7 goals needed little arguing to build a case for its selection. We have decided to indulge ourselves in a trio from the side, one made up of Tamas Kadar, Wang Tong and Liu Yang-II.


After picking up speed instantly in the new season, Marouane has gone off the boil for Luneng. However, this looks set to be the ideal tie for him to add to his 4 goals for the side to make him an instant pick for the outing.

With the most number of assists for the side, Moises Magalhaes’ ability to transition the ball from defence to attack has seen him layup the ball for his counterparts articulately. He’s joined up by Jin Jingdao who has the two assists, a player who has exploited the flanks with his ability to traverse tight spaces with ease.

The goals might have dried up for Shenhua but as long as Cao Yunding is out plying his traits in the middle, the club knows it can scour past any defence. The two assists for him make him an instant selection alongside Xinli Peng who has the one assist.


The three goals for Pelle see him represent our side from the visiting team while Shenhua will see two goal man, striker Giovanni Moreno wrap up our set of picks for the upcoming scrimmage.

Captain And Vice-Captain

The three assists for Moises see him be our captain for the day while Marouane is the vice-captain.
