J.League 1 R5 – Vegalta vs Nagasaki Preview

Vegalta Sendai – V-Varen Nagasaki:

Vegalta are off to an amazing start and are still unbeaten after 4 matches. They are not playing particularly nice, but always fight hard and is a very difficult team to play against.  For once they will be considered the favorite here and it will be interesting to see how they will fare then as all their previous matches this season were against teams that looks stronger on paper.

Nagasaki have as struggled so far, and they are still waiting for their first win. To be honest I don’t think they will string together too many wins this season as they are by far the weakest team in the division in my eyes.  They might cause an upset or 2, but it will be far and between and when you can get a low -0,25 line on Vegalta here I think it’s worth a shot.

Expected Starting Lineup Vegalta:
13Hiraoka – 27Oiwa (I) –39Kim*
