The Red Devils made the trip to Shanghai Stadium to face off with Shanghai Shenhua in their recent match, and despite Nemanja Čović's efforts to see them take the lead in the 27th minute, they ended up settling for an unfavorable outcome after conceding a late goal in the 82nd minute to be held to a 1:1 draw.
Prior to that, they were up against formidable table-toppers Shanghai Port FC on the road, and despite putting up a lively fight in search of a more resounding victory, it wasn't enough to see them avoid the inevitable 3:2 defeat.
A 1:0 triumph against Dalian Pro at home is the only win they've recorded in their last five matches while recording two draws and two losses to accumulate five points, which goes to show that they've struggled for consistency in their matches, making for a more convincing display with their performance.
They presently occupy 13th place with 8 points, level in points with Qingdao Hainiu FC in 14th place, and are one place above the relegation zone, where only two points separate them from the drop zone, while securing all three points here could see them finish in 9th place.
Probable Starting XI

Meizhou Hakka FC
Meizhou Hakka FC suffered an unjustifiable 3:2 loss in their recent outing against Shenzhen FC. In that match, first-half goals from Yang Chaosheng and Pan Ximing witnessed them with a two-goal lead going into the second half, where their assignment was simple: preserve or build on their lead. However, it was too much of an ask as they squandered their two-goal lead to be on the receiving end of a disappointing outcome at the game's conclusion.
Prior to that, they played host to Tianjin Teda at the Wuhua County Olympic Sports Center Stadium, where they were held to an unfortunate 1:1 draw to share the spoils. In that match, they took the lead through Yin Hongbo's strike in the 38th minute, only to be pegged back by an equalizer in the 78th minute.
A 4:2 triumph against Changchun Yatai FC on the road is the only win they've recorded in their last five matches while recording three losses and a draw to accumulate a meager four points in return, and they, like their opponent in this clash, have struggled for consistency.
They presently occupy 12th place with 9 points and are three points adrift of a 9th place finish, while they are only two places above the relegation zone, where they've only maintained a three-point advantage.

Expert Betting Tips
Henan FC have had an underwhelming start to the season as evidenced by their position in the standings, which sees them lingering in the bottom level, one place above the relegation zone, and it goes without saying that a more convincing performance from them will be needed if they are to avoid being dragged down to the drop zone, making securing all three points here crucial as this could possibly see them finish in 9th place.
Meizhou Hakka FC enters this clash with a two-match losing streak away from home and will fancy their chances of getting back to winning ways, though it won't be an easy task as bookmakers have them as underdogs in this clash to extend their losing streak to two matches.
