Shonan Bellmare – Consadole Sapporo:
Shonan are flying high as they qualified for the cupfinal after beating Reysol on pk’s last weekend. Their form is also very good with just 1 loss in their last 10 matches in all competitions They are still involved in the relegation-zone and are in need of points here.
Consadole are also in need of points if they want to stay in the race for 3rd place. Their form is bad with 4 losses in their last 5 matches in all competitions but we saw improvement in the last 2 matches so they seem to be heading back into the right direction.
They also get back 3 key players from suspension here, and are well-rested so I think they got a fair chance of 3 points if they can find their rhythm.
It looks fairly over, and I expect goals at both ends here so the Over 2,5 looks interesting. HCP looks spot-on.

13Yamane – 20Saka – 8Ono
