Sagan Tosu – Shonan Bellmare:
Sagan got 5 straight wins at home in all competitions, and haven’t conceded a single goal in their last 6 home-games. They’ve been taking most of their points lately there, and should be looking for another 3 points here.
Shonan’s form is actually quite good, with just 1 loss in their last 7 matches. 3 out of their last 4 have ended a draw, and they might be able to hang on to something here as well.
It’s a very important game for both teams as it could have a huge impact on the relegation-battle, but I got to go with Sagan here due to their recent home-form. In terms of totals, Shonan have been extremely over away lately but I’m still leaning towards an under. Unfortunately odds on both the home and under is spot-on here, so no bets pre-game.
