Meizhou is a team who have been struggling since the beginning of the season, as they only managed to earn 10 points from their 14 matches. They are only two places away from the drop zone, with only a point lead. This is the record they badly want to improve as they may face an early elimination once they failed to win here. What Meizhou needs to improve the most is their defense, which is a major concern for them. In fact, this season, they already conceded 26 league goals, more than any club does. From these 26 conceded goals, 13 of which are coming from their last five matches, which is not a good indication. In those five matches, they lost to four, but are still fortunate to record a 2-1 win on their last match.

Yang Yiln will not be available here, as he was sent off, minutes after he made an appearance. With his, he will be replaced by Chugui Ye, who will keep his place in this match.

Chengdu on the other hand is the complete opposite of their opponents as they have been phenomenal this season. They are currently at the third of the league table with 27 points, just six points behind the team at the top. Moreover, they are aiming to get the second spot in the league table, which they are just behind for one point. Additionally, this squad is actually undefeated in the contest, not until their precious match. It is unfortunate that they are coming into this game from a loss against Beijing Guoan. Despite being dominant throughout the game, they still fell short against their opponent, despite recording 27 shots. On the other hand, their opponent only had seven shots, but managed to score a victory. This outcome made Chengdu to be more eager to win in this match, to finally get the second spot.

Felipe Silva will continue to lead Chengdu in this match, as he already have five goals and three assists in the contest. Elkeson, and Manuel Palacios on the other hand will be his support to give their club a win
