Gamba with a nice win vs Vegalta last round, but didn’t dominate as much as what the scoreline suggested.  Vegalta had the most chances/efforts on goals, and all of Gamba’s 3 goals came early in the match. Have not been hitting on all sylinders so far with 3-0-3 overall, but got some good news with Niwa and Kim returning to their central defence here.

Finally a win for Reysol last round at home vs Tokyo, in what was a scrappy and evenly contested match.  Unbeaten on 4 matches now, as the 3 previous matches all ended a draw.  Reysol have been playing some good football, and would have deserved to end up with more points than what they have done. Not a team to be underestimated, and think they can give Gamba a run for the points here.

Especially considering Gamba got ACL coming up midweek, and a 100% must-win game there if they want to advance.  Kinda like overs too.

Prediction: 2-1 or 2-2

My odds: -0,5 @  1,99 / Over 2,5 @  1,83
Market Price: -0,5 @ 1,93 / Over 2,5 @ 1,95

Over 2,5 @ 1,95 (5 units)

DF Fitzgerald (R)
MF Kobayashi (R)


Hiroshima with an ugly loss last round as they fell to a 1-4 away-defeat vs in-form Kashima.  2 strong results in a row prior to that, but 2-2-2 overall is quite disappointing for the reigning champions.

Albirex got 2-1-3 so far, but have looked poor playwise and both their 2 wins were against teams from the bottom half of the table. Don’t rate them too highly this season, and think they will struggle here.

Clear home-win, possibly by a few goals too.

Prediction: 3-0 or 3-1

My odds: -1 @  1,82 / Over 2,5 @  1,87
Market Price: -0,75 @ 1,99 / Over 2,75 @ 1,93

Sanfrecce Hiroshima -0,75 @ 1,99 (10 units)
