Yokohama to score the first goal
Yokohama FC is our favourite team to score the first goal in this fixture. Our pick goes against the bookies but for a reason. The hosts may be the last in J.League but their recent resurgence is reason enough to back them for the first goal. Yokohama FC has LWWDL in the last five matches while Sagan Tosu has LDLLD. Noting that the visitors failed to score in four of their last five matches while Yokohama FC scored in four of their last five, our first is a valuable prediction on Netbet.
We also think this game will yield at least three goals. We argue that five of Yokohama’s last five games had more than two goals. And with the visitors struggling defensively, they are likely to concede at least two goals in this game.
Victory for the hosts in first-half
We are tipping Yokohama FC to win the first half of this game. They have a better scoring record of 10 goals in the last five matches while Sagan Tosu scored only one goal in the last five games.
Game Preview: Yokohama FC Fate Hangs on a Balance
Yokohama FC is the last team in J.League with only 25 points in 33 games. Winning all the remaining five games may not be enough for the hosts to survive the drop unless they want to finish the season strongly. Terrible defending has cost the hosts 77 goals with less than half of that (31) scored in 33 games. On the flipside, seventh-placed Sagan Tosu is still in contention for top three, albeit, the competion is still. The visitors must win their remaining five matches is they must compete for a place in the AFC Champions League. Moreover, noting that the hosts have won only three games on home soil, drawn five and lost seven, this fixture could prove even more difficult for Yokohama FC, especially against a team like Sagan Tosu. In previous 14 meetings, Sagan Tosu defeated Yokohama FC nine times and bagged three draws against the hosts. The hosts have only defeated Sagan Tosu twice in 14 encounters, a record that proves this match could end in favour of the visitors.
