Sanfrecce Hiroshima to Win
Given their respective recent form, it is difficult to claim who is on the worse horse between Sanfrecce Hiroshima and Oita Trinita. Both sides are winless in their last five J1 League outings. We are backing Viola to claim the three points on offer based on their home advantage and Trinita's greater accrual of defeats in recent history.
Total Goals: Under 2.5
Hiroshi Jofuku's Sanfrecce Hiroshima has been plagued by inefficiency in front of the goal this season. They are averaging just above one goal per match. Nevertheless, Jofuku will feel confident in his side's chances against Oita Trinita. The visitors have the worst goal scoring record in all of Japanese top-flight football. Given the profligacy of both Hiroshima and Trinita, we expect an Under 2.5 goals conclusion to this meeting.
Both Teams to Score: No
In their last league outing against Urawa Reds, Sanfrecce Hiroshima had 61% possession, managed nine shots on goal but none were on target. Oita Trinita troubled the scorers with their three shots on target through Yuki Kagawa but could not add to their tally. It looks unlikely that either side will have much success in front of the goal in this meeting and we expect someone to draw a blank on August 28.
Sanfrecce Hiroshima vs Oita Trinita: Team News and Match Preview
The Viola have continued to spiral down the points table after a sprightly start to the campaign. Hiroshi Jofuku has seen his side keep their rivals at bay but has been unsuccessful in improving the productivity of his forwards. As it stands, Sanfrecce Hiroshima are winless in their last five outings, losing twice and drawing thrice in the process. It is a far cry from their 8th place finish last campaign and they need to start scoring goals if they are to emulate their standing.
Trinita's current campaign continues to go from bad to worse. As they head to the EDION Stadium, they have lost four of their last five matches, drawing the other. While they have only been shut out once, this period has seen them concede 13 goals with just four in return. This trend needs to be bucked or Tomohiro Katanosaka will be overseeing second division fixtures at the Showa Denko Dome next season.
