Shanghai Shenhua – the shape of the team and its analysis:

The "Flowers" finished last season in fifth place. To improve their performance, they appointed Leonid Slutsky as head coach. Slutsky made a strong start in his new country, leading the team on an unbeaten streak and topping the table.

However, there have been some hiccups in the form of draws. In the last round, they ended with a 1-1 draw at home against Chengdu due to an early own goal.

Meizhou Hakka – the shape of the team and its analysis:

The "Lions" began the season under the guidance of Pablo Villar, but the Spaniard lasted only until the end of May. It's not surprising, considering they managed just one win and eight points in eleven rounds.

Under Qu Gang, they finished goalless against Shenzhen Peng City and even beat Wuhan Three Towns away. However, Qu remained an assistant, and Milan Ristic, who had held the position since 2021 and left in January, returned as the full-time coach. Ristic started with a 0-0 draw against Shandong Taishan and fought hard but lost 1-2 to Shanghai Port.
