FC Tokyo to Win
The last two seasons have seen FC Tokyo claim bragging rights over Vegalta Sendai and we expect that trend to end in this H2H duel. Vegalta are struggling in relegation slots and are winless in their last nine J1 League outings. Meanwhile, FC Tokyo are also on a barren run and without a win in their last four away trips. With Sendai winning four of the last five meetings at the Yurtec Stadium, we are backing them to claim points at Tokyo's expense.
Total Goals: Under 2.5
Three of FC Tokyo's last five away trips have seen less than three goals. On the other hand, Vegalta Sendai has been more goal averse and their last four matches at the Yurtec Stadium all have finished with an Under 2.5 goals scoreline. Based on their recent form and continued failings to score regularly, we expect a low scoring affair as they come together.
Both Teams to Score: No
In three of their last four home fixtures, Vegalta Sendai has failed to trouble the scorers. On the other hand, FC Tokyo has been shut out twice in the same period. With both sides entering this fixture following 0-0 draws in their respective outings, we do not expect both Vegalta and Tokyo to be represented on the scoreboard at the same time.
Vegalta Sendai vs Tokyo: Team News and Match Preview
The Japanese top-flight has been ruthless for Vegalta Sendai, who are struggling in relegation slots for the second year in a row. They were saved by the authorities last time around as no one was relegated but it looks unlikely that they will be helped again by favourable rules. The task for Makoto Teguramori is gargantuan but not impossible as they are four points away from safety. The onus will be on their forwards to rescue them as the defence continues to fall flat on its face and has the embarrassing tag of being the second-worst backline in the J1 League.
Naoki Ogane and his board will not be pleased with FC Tokyo's placement in the J1 League points table. Kenta Hasegawa's men are ninth eight points behind third-placed Sagan Tosu. Their four-match winless streak has seen them slip down the points table and allowed their rivals to leapfrog. More embarrassing has been their successive defeats to direct top-four rivals, Consadole Sapporo and Sagan Tosu. The attacking lineup has gone profligate at the wrong time, with Hasegawa unable to find replacements for misfiring Diego and Adailton.
