They risk relegation if the losing streak continues in this match. A poor scoring record is an issue that head coach Miguel Angel Lotina should address if his team is to get the desired outcome in this fixture.
Consadole Sapporo has shown real intent of improving in recent matches even though their safety in Japan's top flight is almost assured. After some inconsistent performance that alternated between losses and wins, the visitors bagged back to back draws before this match.

Four matches are left to play and losing all or any of them wouldn't have any impact on their assured survival in the J.League.
