Sagan Tosu to Win

Vegalta Sendai's poor run of form continues. The Phoenix has not recorded a win in the Japanese top-flight football since May and they are odds on favourites for another drubbing at the hands of Sagan Tosu. Kim Myung-hwi saw his side claim an away win against Kashiwa Reysol and will fancy themselves the three points on offer in search of third place on the points table.

Total Goals: Over 2.5

History is on Sagan Tosu's side as they return victors from their last trip to the Yurtec Stadium Sendai. They scored three on that fateful November night last year and will look to replicate that result. However, we expect them to get a boost from Vegalta Sendai in claiming the win with an Over 2.5 goals scoreline as they have conceded in each of their six away trips.

Both Teams to Score: Yes

Sagan Tosu has only failed to get on the scoreboard thrice in their last ten away trips. In this period, they have only kept one clean sheet, their 0-0 draw with Consadole Sapporo. Across the same number of home games, Vegalta has been denied a place on the scoreboard four times, two of these coming in nil-nil draws. We expect them to trouble the scorers in this meeting given Sagan's poor defensive record in recent weeks.

Vegalta Sendai vs Sagan Tosu: Team News and Match Preview

Vegalta Sendai

The Phoenix was supposed to rise after their scare last season but it seems they have not learnt from their past mistakes. They are entrenched in a relegation dog fight and are not helping their cause with their poor displays. They remain winless in their last eleven competitive outings and fears of the worse are beginning to arise. The blame for their condition rests on the players' inefficiency in the final third, theirs and their rivals. They have the joint second-worst defence and the joint second-worst attacking output in the league.

Sagan Tosu

Kim Myung-hwi needs to be lauded for his work at the Yurtec Stadium Sendai. From finishing in 13th place to fighting for third place on the points table, they have undergone a complete transition under Myung-hwi. The task at hand is not finished and they have to battle it out with the other five aspirants who are within three points of each other. Keita Yamashita and co. cannot rest on their laurels and need to fire their way into AFC Champions League reckoning in the final twelve games of the season.
