Nagoya Grampus – Consadole Sapporo:
Both teams are in need of points here, with Consadole still trailing 3rd placed FC Tokyo by 1 point, while Nagoya are still very much involved in the relegation-zone.
Consadole’s form is bad with just 1 win on their last 6 matches, but they’ve showed improvements in the last couple of matches. Nagoya took a strong 1-0 win away vs Reysol last round but had 3 straight losses prior to that.
Tricky game to predict, as Nagoya got a very high max-level despite their modest league-position and this game can go either way. Consadole won 3-0 at home back in April, and I got a small pref on the away-side here too. Also like overs, and expect goals at both ends but the total seems correct.
Could be a good live-game too both for overs and 1×2 bets.
