Victory for the hosts

The hosts have been the better side in previous encounters with Shonan Bellmare. In the previous 19 meetings, Cerezo Osaka bagged 12W, 3D and 4L. Currently, the visitors are going through a rough patch marked by defensive woes. The hosts come to this game with back to back victories and we think they have the firepower to exploit Bellmare's struggling backline. The visitors who lost three of their last four games are ranked 16 out of 20 on the road.

Cerezo Osaka should open the scoring

Cerezo Osaka is also our favourite team to open the scoring in this fixture. They come up against a team that is fighting for survival but bogged down by defensive mishaps. The hosts have the seventh-best home record and by that, they have lost only twice in 13 home games so far, scored 19 and conceded 13. Shonan Bellmare has leaked 19 goals on the road and scored 13, which is a direct opposite of Osaka's home record.

One-sided scoreline

We are tipping the hosts to win this game with a clean sheet. The visitors failed to score in two of their last four games. In the last five meetings between these teams, Shonan Bellmare failed to score and are also winless in as many matches.

Match Preview: Shonan Bellmare Winless against Cerezo Osaka in the Last 7 Meetings

The big question in this fixture is whether Shonan Bellmare can overcome their defensive worries to get the first win over the hosts in eight meetings. Find out more in our match preview.

Cerezo Osaka

With the seventh-best home record in the league, Cerezo Osaka will be keen not to lose the third game at home. The hosts also have a better record in H2H comparison with Shonan Bellmare, which is another motivation for Levir Culpi and his squad. The hosting manager averages 1.68 points in 31 games and will be keen to get another victory at the helm. Levir Culpi, more points means staying safe in the league, albeit, the hosts can still challenge for a spot in the top half of the J. League table.

Shonan Bellmare

Defensive troubles are the biggest headache for head coach, Bin Ukishima, as he prepares his squad for this game. The Japanese tactician had been in charge of Shonan Bellmare since October 2019 and averages 0.95 points. His poor record has seen him record 16W, 26D and 36L.
