J.League 1 R2 – Tokyo – Vegalta Preview

FC Tokyo – Vegalta Sendai:

Tokyo managed to get a point at home vs Urawa in their first match of the season and can be reasonably happy with that. Were under a lot of pressure at times but managed to withstand it and took a well-earned point in the end.

Vegalta did well to beat Reysol at home in their match, but it was an ugly match with few chances at both ends. Vegalta is a rough team to play against which the more technical Reysol-players struggled with.  I think we’ll see a different scenario in this match as Tokyo know how to throw a punch as well and they should be able to outperform the visitors. Vegalta got a couple of injuries as well and are not at full-strength here.

Expected Starting Lineup Tokyo:
2Muroya – 2Morishige (I) – 48Jang Hyun-Soo – 6Ota
