Henan - Form Analysis: A brief resurgence at the end of April was a temporary exception

The "Red Devils" are under the management of Kim Nam-il this season, but the Korean coach has struggled more than his predecessors, who managed to keep the team in the top 10. They began the tournament with four draws and two losses, but ended last month with victories over Qingdao Hainiu and Qingdao Mighty Lions. However, they failed to build on that success and have since lost all subsequent matches. In their recent match against Wuhan Three Towns, they scored twice but conceded three goals.

Shanghai Shenhua - Form Analysis: The appointment of Slutsky has proven effective so far

The "Blue Devils" were dissatisfied with their fifth-place finish last season and hired the coach known as the "Russian Mourinho" to lead them to the top. Despite mixed reviews of his international career, Slutsky has succeeded in China, starting with a Super Cup victory (1-0 in the derby against SIPG) and maintaining an unbeaten streak in the league. They recently defeated Qingdao Hainiu 2-0.

Henan: Team News There are no reported injuries.

Shanghai Shenhua: Team News The leaders have no personnel issues.
