Consadole Sapporo vs Cerezo Osaka Match Predictions
With no winner in the last encounter, which happened to be the only draw in previous 7 encounters, this fixture will be an exciting one. Sapporo is only 4 points above the relegation zone but there is still hope with several matches left to play. Here is how we have tipped the J-League game to end:
Over 2.5 goals full-time
More than 2 goals at full-time is a high possibility in this clash. It was the result in the last four encounters, so with the hosts facing defensive challenges while Cerezo is doing better offensively; we expect at least 3 goals at full-time. Notably, the hosts lost three of their last five league games. Four of the last five had at least 3 goals. On the flip-side, four out of the last five league fixtures for Cerezo has more than 2 goals.
Cerezo Osaka to score first
While Consadole Sapporo lost three games and failed to score in two of their last five league games, it was a different case for Cerezo Osaka. The visitors lost only one game, the only fixture in which they failed to score; won 3 and drawn once in their last five games. The away record is way better than that of Sapporo, so there is a good chance Cerezo Osaka will be the first to score in this trip.
Cerezo Osaka over 1.5 goals
Over 1.5 goals for Cerezo Osaka is our last prediction. The visitors have found the net at least two times in four of their last five J-League matches. They are doing better defensive and given that Sapporo has some serious defensive problems ahead of the clash, the visitors should be on top of the game.
Consadole Sapporo vs Cerezo Osaka Match Preview
The hosts need points to go further up the table away from the relegation zone. They are only four points above the red zone, so a loss would be unwelcomed news. The home support Sapporo expects in this clash with Cerezo Osaka should motivate them to get the results. However, they have always underperformed in this matchup and given the good run that Cerezo is currently having, home win is unlikely.
The visitors lost their last J-League game ahead of this game. The 3-0 home defeat was a major setback in their quest for top three places. It was the only loss in 11 games. However, the visitors dominated Sapporo with 10 wins and 6 draws and only lost to the visitors 4 times in previous 20 meetings. We not only expect the visitors to score but they have what it takes to win the games.
