J.League 1 R28 – Marinos vs Vegalta Preview

Yokohama F Marinos  – Vegalta Sendai:

Marinos are in good form with 4 wins in their last 5 in all competitions, but 2 of those wins came in the cup vs a poor Gamba side. Still, it’s good for their confidence and they are playing quite well too lately.

Vegalta keeps picking up points here and there, and they are actually just a few points behind 3rd place now so ACL is within reach. Few would have thought that ahead of the season but they are sailing up as a dark horse now. Away they haven’t been too good lately though with 3 losses in their last 4, but they are still a team to be taken seriously.

Tricky match that can go both ways, but I think Marinos will at least avoid defeat being at home. It looks like a match with potential for goals, but with heavy rain predicted I think the total is too high here and find some value on Under 3.
