Changchun Yatai FC
Changchun Yatai FC made the trip to Workers Stadium to lock horns with Beijing Guoan FC, and despite putting forth a superb performance, they still found themselves on the receiving end of a 4:3 defeat.
Prior to that, destiny wasn't on their side on their own turf as they played host to table-toppers Shanghai Port FC, and despite managing 53% of ball possession, it wasn't enough to see them avoid a convincing 3:0 defeat to drop all three points.
With a two-match losing streak to their name and their spirits at an all-time low, there's no denying that the sense of urgency to get back on track is undoubtedly high, as suffering their third straight defeat could see them in inconsistent form, which is the last thing they'll want to see themselves embroiled in for a side that was on a three-match unbeaten run, picking up two wins and a draw.
There's no denying that two losses in a row have taken a toll on them in the standings, as they have dropped significantly. They currently occupy 7th place with 17 points, level on points with Beijing Guoan FC (5th) and Shandong Taishan (6th), while they are three points adrift of a 4th place finish, making collecting all three points here crucial.
Probable Starting XI
M. Wei; H. Xu, Y. Mincheng, J. Zhipeng, L. Yue; Z. Yuan, R. Huang, S. Hujahmat; F. Acheampong, Y. Du
The Youth Army displayed a poor performance in their recent outing against Zhejiang Professional FC, as they succumbed to a 3:0 defeat, ending all hopes they had for extending their winning streak to two matches.
Prior to that, they played host to Meizhou Hakka FC at Shenzhen Universiade Sports Centre, and they pulled off a sensational comeback that saw them come from two goals down in the first half to win 3:2 at the conclusion of the game thanks to second-half goals from Frank Acheampong, Zhang Yuan, and Liu Yue.
In their last five matches, they have maintained a consistent form that has seen them accumulate seven points from two wins, two losses, and a draw. During that period, they failed to keep a clean sheet in all their matches, conceding ten goals while scoring six, making for an improved showing with their defense moving forward.
They currently occupy 11th place with 11 points, level on points with Henan FC in 10th place, and have only maintained a three-point advantage over the relegation zone. Failure to secure all three points could possibly see them in the relegation zone at the conclusion of the game, and that's if Qingdao Hainiu FC are to overcome Shanghai Shenhua.

Expert Betting Tips
Changchun Yatai FC have a two match losing streak to their name which doesn't bode well for them at all in their bid to enter the top three in the standings while contending for this season's title and there's no doubt that they'll be desperate to pick up three points on home turf.
