Consadole Sapporo – V-Varen Nagasaki:
Consadole are still without a win this season but have been playing well and it is only a matter of time before they start collecting points on a more regular basis I think. They are a joy to watch going forward, but have looked very vulnerable on counter-attacks against. They seem to take more chances going forward this year with Petrovic at the helm than what they did last year.
Nagasaki are also without a win in the league, but have 2 draws and only 1 loss. They held Urawa to a 1-1 draw at home last round ,and although they can be happy with how things have gone so far I doubt it will going to last.
The opening odds on Consadole was ridiculously low here I think as you could even get a low DNB. Since then the odds have moved a bit, but there is still massive value on the home-side especially if you can get a -0,25 line. The difference in quality between these 2 teams is huge, and in my eyes Consadole should atleast be -0,75 here. The totals also looks wrong as I expect at least a couple of goals for the home-side.
Consadole Expected Starting Lineup:
35Shindo* – 20Kim – 5Fukumori (I)
14Komai – 8Fukai – 6Hyodo – 38Suga
