Shandong Taishan - Form analysis: Managing to improve

"The Dream of Mount Tai" reached the quarterfinals of the AFC Champions League, where they lost to Yokohama F. Marinos. This seems to have taken a toll, and the first part of the new season in the Super League didn't go smoothly: after 6 rounds, they had an equal number of wins, draws, and losses, winning and losing equally at home and away. However, after lightening their schedule, the club won twice in a row against Changzhou and Chendu.

Nantong Zhiyun - Form analysis: Struggling to distance from the danger zone

"The Blue Wolves" are a young but clearly ambitious project. Founded in 2016, they gradually gained strength in the First League and earned another promotion in the season before last. However, it was only from the third position, so the prospects of the debutant were cautiously assessed. They managed to finish fourteenth, retaining their spot. Currently, they are trying to improve, but not very successfully. They secured an important victory in the last round, defeating Qingdao West Coast with a quick double by Godínez. However, this is only their second win, having lost half of their 8 matches.
