Vissel Kobe to score first
A strong resurgence has helped Vissel Kobe strengthen their J. League standing. They are now unbeaten in four games, three of which were victories. We think they have what it takes to find the back of the net first in this fixture against a team like Tokushima Vortis that is struggling with a leaking defence.
Tokushima Vortis needs to survive the drop by all means, including goal difference. Given that this is one of their toughest duels with only four matches left, we don’t think the visitors will concede many goals.
No breakthrough in first-half
We don't expect a breakthrough in the first half of this fixture. Both teams have different but important ambitions. While the hosts will fight to secure third place, the visitors are fighting for survival. A deadlocked first half is likely.
Match Preview: Different Ambitions, One Important Game for Vissel Kobe and Tokushima Vortis
Our match preview provides you with more details about this important game. Take a look.
Vissel Kobe is third and with a huge ambition of participating in the AFC Champions League. The hosts are eight points shy of second place, a record that leaves them with the option of strengthening their current spot. They are three points adrift of fourth-place, so another victory would widen that gap to six points. In 36 J. League matches, Vissel Kobe has 18W, 10D and 6L. They are ranked fifth on the home record during which they lost six games at home. Out of 57 points, Vissel Kobe collected 34 points on home soil. The hosts look to make it three wins out of three consecutive encounters with Tokushima Vortis.
This match puts the visitors under pressure in their J. League survival quest. Tokushima Vortis sits 17th on J. League, a position that could see them relegated if no win is registered in the remaining four games. They are two points shy of safety. To win this game, the visitors must improve their defence that has leaked 50 goals and also bolster their attacking. They have scored 29 games in 34 games, 13 of which were away from home. Moreover, 30 of the goals leaked by Tokushima were away from home.
