Chengdu Rongcheng FC
Chengdu Rongcheng looked like a side that was going to conclude the season inside the top three; however, some inconsistencies along the way have hampered their chances of achieving that feat by a two-point deficit, though not all is lost as four games remain to continue with their endeavor.
Their recent match against Nantong Zhiyun FC on the road witnessed them secure a 2-0 triumph courtesy of goals from Andrigo and Tim Chow. That win halted a three-match winless run in the league, where two losses and a draw were recorded.
The Chengdu Phoenix Mountain Sports Park has seen them meet expectations, though not to the fullest. Besides a two-match losing run, their track record from twelve matches looks convincing, as they have won six, lost three, and drawn three to accumulate 21 points. They will be confident in picking their seventh home win, though it won't be a walk in the park.
They currently occupy seventh place with 40 points in the standings and are three points ahead of eighth-placed Tianjin Teda. Their bid for a third-place finish is hindered by a two-point deficit.
Probable Starting XI
X. Geng; X. Tang, R. Hu, R. Windbichler, T. Liu, T. Miao; Elkeson, G. Chao, T. Chow, M. Palacios; F. Silva
Shanghai Port FC
For Shanghai Port, going winless in three matches is just more than a decline in form for them but a costly setback in their journey to clinching their first league title since the 2017-18 season.
Though Javier Pereira had every right to be concerned about his side's form, especially after being eliminated by minnows BG Pathum United in the AFC Champions League playoff, those concerns seem to be fading away as a 2-0 win against Changchun Yatai at home has reignited the much-needed confidence in their camp.
That win not only halted a three-match winless run in the league but also saw their two-match winless run at the Pudong Football Stadium be a thing of the past. On the road, they have met expectations, with their commendable performance winning nine of their twelve matches alongside two draws and a solitary 3-1 loss against Henan FC being an exception.
They currently occupy first place with 56 points in the standings and are nine points ahead of second-placed Shandong Taishan.
