Shanghai Port have the best defensive record in the league at the moment, having conceded just eight goals so far. Shandong Taishan have scored seven goals since the restart while conceding just once, so they might prove to be a tough opponent for the capital club.

When the two in-form sides clash on Sunday, a high-scoring draw is the most likely outcome from the game.
