Shandong Taishan had endured a disastrous and terrible run of form in the games preceding the June fixtures of the Chinese Super League. They had lost five and drawn one while conceding 24 goals in the process in their last six games before the Chinese Super League 2022 began. However, they have come back strong this campaign with 12 points out of a possible 18 in their first six games. A 4-1 defeat in the reverse fixture to Henan Songshan Longmen and a 2-0 loss in their last game against Zhejiang Professional have been the only imperfect results that they have suffered. They will be keen to get over that 2-0 defeat and earn a win over Henan Songshan Longmen to overtake them in the table.
As for, Henan Songshan Longmen, the results prior to the commencement of the Chinese Super League provided encouraging signs with three wins, two draws and just a single defeat in their last six games. Javier Pereira and his side would be delighted that they are still unbeaten in the league after six matchdays. Apart from a 2-2 draw to Dalian Professional FC in their opening game and 0-0 draw to Changchun Yatai on matchday five, Henan Songshan Longmen have came out winners in every single game. They will certainly be confident to earn another win against Shandong Taishan.
For Shandong Taishan, Wu Xinghan continues to be unavailable having suffered a long-term injury at the end of last year.

Henan Songshan Longmen, on the other hand, will be without the services of the suspended Xingyu Ma. The rest of the squad is fit and available for selection in the starting XI.
