Yokohama F Marinos – Nagoya Grampus:
Marinos won their last match but had 3 straight defeats prior to that. They only got 2-3-4 at home so far this season and have been somewhat of a disappointment. At their best they are playing some amazing football, especially going forward but the team still seem to lack certain player types for their ambitious playing-style.
Nagoya got 3 straight wins now and are finally back on track. They should be high on confidence, and that could only be positive for players like Jo and Gabriel. Their defence as well as the team balance also seems to have improved after Nakatani and Eduardo Neto joined. That the awful Aria Jasuru Hasegawa is out of the starting lineup also helps a lot.
With their current form in mind I find great value both on the +0,5 and the 1×2 away. Also expect goals, but there’s already been a major move on the Over (Moved from a 2,75 line to a 3,25 line). Still, could be worth to take overs in-play.
