J.League 1 R21 – Sagan vs Urawa Preview

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.

20Gonda (I)
3Takahashi – 13Kobayashi* – 5Kim –  23Yoshida
