Yokohama F. Marinos to win first-half
Victory for the hosts in the first half is likely in this fixture. The hosts are second in the J. League table and have lost only one game in 16 home matches. On the other hand, Gamba Osaka has made 16 trips so far this season, winning five, drawing four and losing seven. Historically, the hosts have bagged 9W, 7D and 4L against Gamba Osaka in this fixture. We don’t think Gamba Osaka has a chance in this game.
A high scoreline is another plausible outcome in this game. The hosts have scored 70 goals in 33 games, translating to an average of 2.12 goals per match. On the flipside, Gamba Osaka averages 0.8 goals per game after 33 matches. The visitors have leaked 40 goals while Yokohama F. Marinos has conceded 31 in as many games. Moreover, seven out of the last eight meetings between these teams had more than two goals, a trend we will likely witness in this game.
The last pick for this game is that both teams will find the net. The last seven meetings had goals on both sides. Moreover, only one of the last ten encounters between Yokohama F. Marinos and Gamba Osaka did not have goals on both ends.
Match Preview: Gamba Osaka Looking for Safety Points
With 37 points after 33 games and only seven points off the drop zone, Gamba Osaka need to points in this game more than the hosts. Yokohama F. Marinos 11 points clear ahead of third-placed Vissel Kobe, a gap that should not worry the hosts, especially in this fixture. The hosts have lost only one match at home, won 12 and drawn three. It is a performance that puts them ahead of the competition in this fixture. In the 16 home fixtures played so far, Yokohama FM has conceded only 1o goal, the second least number of goals conceded on home soil this season. The visitors have had a fairly good result away from home, bagging 6W, 4D and 7L in 16 trips. Notably, both of these teams scored against each other in the last seven meetings, a record we believe will play significance in this fixture. The reverse fixture ended 3-2 in favour of Yokohama FM.
