Javier Pereira’s side have got the better of Cangzhou Mighty Lions of late, unbeaten in their last three Chinese Super League matches. Sapuric’s side will be looking for their first league win in matches between the two teams since October 2016, with Henan SSLM having outscored them 5-1 during their unbeaten run.
Henan SSLM won the last league encounter between the sides, triumphing 3-0 at Zhengzhou Hanghai Stadium in October, with Guido Carrillo scoring first from the spot in the 13th minute before Pina and Fernando Karanga also getting on the scoresheet.
