Vegalta Sendai vs Yokohama: Team News and Match Preview
The Phoenix were lucky to avoid relegation last campaign but a drop to second division looks more likely with every passing fixture. Vegalta Sendai are winless in their last eight competitive outings and Makoto Teguramori needs to address their decline or else it's too late. Ahead of this six-point affair that can potentially impact the relegation battle, Teguramori will be pleased to have his complete squad at his disposal.
For the duration of the 2021/22 campaign, Yokohama FC has been the butt of jokes in the J1 League. With the worst defensive record in the Japanese top-flight record, they have been pushed around without any repercussions. They only have three wins from their 23 league outings, with two of these coming in the most recent two outings. They are seven points away from safety and Tomonobu Hayakawa will want a positive result against Vegalta Sendai, one of their direct rivals for relegation.
