J.League 1 R10 – Cerezo vs Vegalta Preview

Cerezo Osaka – Vegalta Sendai:

Cerezo lost the Osaka-derby last weekend but have looked strong overall lately. They still got a lot of injuries though, although only 2-3 players of any major significance.

Vegalta’s form have taken a dip lately with just 4 points from their last 4 matches. They suffered an ugly 0-3 defeat at home vs Iwata last round that can’t be good for morale and I think they will struggle here as well as Cerezo will be out to revenge the loss against Gamba. Odds seems correct though so no bets.
