J.League 1 R23 – Previews

(No time for full previews for the matches below) Shimizu S-Pulse – Urawa Reds: I got a big pref on Urawa here but odds seems correct so no value.  Think we can see some goals though as both teams have been involved in some high-scoring matches lately. Urawa in particular look a lot more dangerous…

J.League 1 R23 – Consadole vs Tokyo Preview

Consadole Sapporo – FC Tokyo: Consadole are not in the best of form firth just 1-3-1 on their last 5, but they have been playing fairly well.  Are a bit weakened in the middle here with captain Miyazawa out of the lineup as well as Miyoshi but they got decent cover in both positions. Tokyo…

J.League 1 R22 – Marinos vs Nagoya Preview

Yokohama F Marinos – Nagoya Grampus: Marinos won their last match but had 3 straight defeats prior to that. They only got 2-3-4 at home so far this season and have been somewhat of a disappointment. At their best they are playing some amazing football, especially going forward but the team still seem to lack…

J.League 1 R22 – Nagasaki vs Kashima Preview

V-Varen Nagasaki – Kashima Antlers: Nagasaki seems a bit out of it with just 1 win on their last 5 matches, but they have only met very strong teams and managed to put in a good fight in all the matches. They got 3-2-4 at home so far this season and I think they got…

J.League 1 R22 – Kobe vs Hiroshima Preview

Vissel Kobe – Sanfrecce Hiroshima: Last match was the first where both Podolski and Iniesta played for Kobe, and it gave immediate result as the 2 combined beautifully to set up the first goal of the match, which they won 2-1 in the end.  OF course, it’s too early to draw any conclusions, but I…

J.League 1 R22 – Cerezo vs Shimizu Preview

Cerezo Osaka – Shimizu S-Pulse: Cerezo’s form are not improving, and they have now played 8 matches in a row without a win. They are still in 6th place though, but if their form doesn’t turn around they will soon drop like a rock on the table. They are expected to try out a new…

J.League 1 R22 – Gamba vs Consadole Preview

Gamba Osaka – Consadole Sapporo: Not the most interesting match betting-wise, and it’s a bit tricky to predict as Conasdole have been in relatively poor form lately while Gamba took their first win in a while last round.  With Gamba’s recent manager change as well there’s a lot of unknown factors here, so no HCP-bets…

J.League 1 R22 – Kawasaki vs Sagan Preview

Kawasaki Frontale – Sagan Tosu: It might be dangerous to go against here considering they got 4-0-1 on their last 5 matches but they have not been particularly impressive at home this season. Only 5-1-4 so far, and a Sagan with 2 wins in a row might be able to cause some problems for them…

J.League 1 R22 – Tokyo vs Reysol Preview

FC Tokyo – Kashiwa Reysol: FC Tokyo lost their last match but are still in a solid 2nd place. They got 7-2-2 at home, and I expect their good home-record to continue here. Likely to make a few changes from the team that lost the match, but still look set to field a strong side….

J.League 1 R22 – Urawa vs Iwata Preview

Urawa Reds – Jubilo Iwata: Urawa 2 matches without a win now, but were unlucky in the end vs Sagan last round as they had a goal disallowed late in the game that could have turned the whole match around.  I still think they have looked a lot better under their new manager, and want…

J.League 1 R22 – Vegalta vs Shonan Preview

Vegalta Sendai – Shonan Bellmare: Vegalta are one of the weakest home-teams in the league with only 2-4-4 on 10 matches so far. They won their last match away against Reysol, but have overall looked fairly poor lately. Shonan got a respectable 3-3-4 away so far, and have taken lots of points against much better…

J.League 1 R21 – Sagan vs Urawa Preview

Sagan Tosu – Urawa Reds: Urawa are definitely back on track, and the recent manager change seems to have had a good impact. They got 3-4-0 on their last 7 now, and are eyeing top 4. Sagan took a narrow win vs Cerezo last round, but despite the recent acquisitions in Torres and Kanazaki they…
