Dalian Yifang vs Shandong Luneng Preview

Dalian Yifang sit in mid-table, and Rafa Benitez has work to do in order to help them break into the top four. The Spaniard began his tenure with an entertaining 3-3 draw against Tianjin Teda, and it was a decent outcome considering that they were reduced to ten men on 69 minutes. New signing Saloman Rondon within 25 minutes of entering the field, and plenty will be expected of the former West Brom man. Yannick Carrasco continues to score goals with 13 in 15, and he will play a vital part once again. They were in cup action in midweek, cruising to a 4-0 victory against out-of-form Tianjin Tianhai with Emmanuel Boateng netting a hat-trick. The hosts have won five of their last ten games in all competitions, and three of their last at home.

Shandong Luneng sit fourth in the table, and they arrive here in great form with five wins from their last six in all competitions. Graziano Pelle is the key to them with 14 goals in this first 15 appearances this season, but Roger Guedes has also been in excellent form with seven goals to his name. They trail third place Shanghai SIPG by 13 points, and their major problems have come on the road. They’ve lost four of their last seven on the road, with a 3-2 defeat to Henan Jianye their latest loss on their travels. They were also defeated on their previous visit to this ground in September 2018.


Dalian Yifang vs Shandong Luneng Betting Tips

Rafa Benitez may have barely unpacked his suitcase, but he will have had enough time to help shape this squad. They are a mid-table side at the moment, but the former Liverpool boss is likely to have a positive impact. They are playing with confidence at home, and the addition of Saloman Rondon could be key. Rafa’s first home game in charge is against a decent side, but its against a team who don’t tend to travel well, and that could be the difference here.

Dalian Yifang have scored eight time in their last three home matches, and they could prove too strong for their visitors. They are odds-against, and can be backed at 5/4 with Betway. That looks like a sensible bet.

Rondon only needed 25 minutes to get off the mark, and I can imagine him becoming prolific in the CSL. He is the sort of hard-working striker who should thrive alongside Yannick Carrasco. He is the best option to score anytime in this fixture.
