Shandong Luneng vs Jeonbuk by Alexis1016
Ok, Shandong Luneng have home advantage here and they are slight favorite in this match, but I don't think they will have a easy task because Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors it's strong side in Asia.
In fact, Shandong it's a strong side in front of the goal thanks to their foreigners, the playmaker from Argentina, Walter Montillo and the newcomer, Diego Tardelli. Also, they have a defensive midfielder from Brazil, Junior Urso. The striker Aloisio couldn't be registered because of AFC Rule (just 3 foreigners outside Asia are allowed). Junior Urso it's a good player in front of the defense, but even with him there, Shandong is not so strong in defense and that was seen in the last game against Binh Duong from Vientam. Of course, Binh played at home, but most likely they are the weakest side from ACL group stage. So, is not a good thing for Shandong defense to concede goals from a weak side.
On the other hand, Jeonbuk played really against Kashiwa Reysol in the last game and they dominated that game, but they were a bit unlucky as the South Korea team missed a lot of good chances to score. Of course, is not expected from they dominated again the match because now will be a away game, but even so they have the potential to break twice the defense of Shandong because they brought in the winter two good offensive players. They are Eninho (attacking midfielder) and Edu (striker). These two players have great experince and played a lot time in Asia before. Both should adapt quickly at their new team. Aussie defender Alex Wilkinson and experienced striker Dong-Gook Lee missed the last match due to minor injuries and they have some chances to play in this match. Not info yet about their condition.
So, as I said before the Chinese team is not great in defense and that could be speculated by the strong attack of Jeonbuk, which also includes another good Brazlian player, former AEK offensive midfielder Leonardo (he was only on the bench against Reysol). Jeonbuk can score twice here.
