Sagan Tosu – Urawa Reds:
Urawa are definitely back on track, and the recent manager change seems to have had a good impact. They got 3-4-0 on their last 7 now, and are eyeing top 4.
Sagan took a narrow win vs Cerezo last round, but despite the recent acquisitions in Torres and Kanazaki they still don’t look very dangerous going forward. They seem to lack a playmaker that can feed their strikers chances, but hopefully goals will start coming soon.
Against a strong Urawa-side I can’t see them being a match though, and I like both away and over here.

3Takahashi – 13Kobayashi* – 5Kim – 23Yoshida
