HN vs SHD Dream11 Team Team: Shandong Luneng look to further consolidate fourth place while Henan Jianye try to make one final push for the top 10
For Shandong Luneng, this has been a tournament which has lived up to expectations. Lining up the side with some specialist performers from the footballing fraternity, the side roped in players well versed with what it takes to succeed on the highest level. And it’s this that has served them fruitfully in this season of the Chinese Super League, seeing the side sitting safely in fourth place.
The side has more than adequately capitalised on the floundering form of the teams placed between them, allowing the sides from fifth place to tenth to battle t amongst themselves while successfully churning out important results in their favour. And while the strike force has seen a massive turnaround for the side, compensating for the lack of goals in previous season, the stern and stable backline has been at the forefront of their success.
Up against Henan Jianye today, Luneng will be quietly confident of their chances of not only winning their third consecutive match but also keeping a cleansheet in as many matches. Bludgeoned in 11th place after failing to imbed a consistent enough run of results, Henan with the 17 points are 3 points off a top 10 spot, something which is looking improbable with every passing match.
Ahead of today’s match, Luneng make a foray into the encounter as firm favourites. They are taking on a side who have won just once in their previous five matches, losing two on the bounce, a spree which is a testament to the inclement nature of football Henan have doled out this fixture.
Luneng’s strike force is going to enjoy its outing today against a side which is extremely vulnerable to leaking goals at the backline. The scoreline could end up being an extremely silly one with Luneng emerging from this with a as comfortable win as they come.
Goal-Keeper for HN vs SHD Dream11 Team
We had to choose between opting with a goal-keeper or defender from Henan given the composition we wanted to dole out for this fixture and ultimately we decided to nail down on their goal-keeper. The fact that they are going to concede is a confirmed conclusion and in Wu Yan we have opted for a name who should save our side with a barrage of save points.
Defenders for HN vs SHD Dream11 Team
It’s a pairing of defenders which makes an entry into our side from Luneng. With just 16 goals let in across their stay in the league, the significant skirmish which their backline has caught opposition strikers in just a scenario which we couldn’t ignore.
Coming in from the side are two of their mainstays in the form of Tong Wang and Lin Dai. With our attacking departments comfpletely 90% made up of players from Luneng we have also gone ahead with the sole pick from Henan with Chen Hao coming in after his recent resurgence. He’s acted as the fulcrum of his side’s backline, waging a lone battle as his side look to paper over the cracks.
Midfielders for HN vs SHD Dream11 Team
We’ll begin first with our lone selection from Henan over here in the form of Tim Chow. A hardworking player, his forays in both the attacking and defensive facet justify the high price tag he accords, offering not only attacking points but tackle based returns as well.
For Luneng it’s an entire trio of attacking minded players that walks into our side unanimously. There were no second deliberations on opting for Xinghan Wu with his two goals seeing him come into our side alongside the key component of this side of the park Junmin Hao. Chi Zhang wraps up our side given his guile and trickery to work his way around defenders and find himself get on the end of the well worked moves by his side.
Strikers for HN vs SHD Dream11 Team
Its goal galore in this facet with both the sides relying heavily on their strikers to incur a bagful of goals for them. With a colossal 19 goals in between them, the 12 for Graziano Pelle and the 7 for Roger Guedes, the two have in between them formed one of the most deadly partnerships in the league up the field. It’s a duo which has in unison put down defences to scour their way past a slew of goals and we see them getting a rich haul today as well.
From Henan it’s their top scorer, Frank Ochandza who comes in for us as the last pick of our Dream 11 side. He’s scored 7 goals and is also assigned the duty of converting their penalties with the three successful conversions to his name.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Guedes gets to be our captain for today’s match in the league while we have opted for Junmin as our vice-captain.
