J1 R2 – Shonan vs Tokyo Preview

Shonan Bellmare – FC Tokyo:

A very good win for Shonan in R1 where they  beat Consadole 2-0 at home. It was a closely fought match though that could have gone both ways but credit to Shonan for tipping it into their favour.

Tokyo also looked good in R1 as they put in a great performance in the 0-0 draw away vs Kawasaki. They seem to be continuing with their defensive playstyle, and should be very content with keeping Kawasaki’s forwards at bay for the entire match.

They got another away-match coming here, but Shonan is of course on a different level than Kawasaki so I think Tokyo got a good chance of 3 points here. They got a great record away vs Shonan having won 4 out of 6 matches and I expect a similar outcome here.  It will probably not be a very entertaining match, with few chances at both ends but Tokyo should have enough quality to win it.

13Yamane – 4Saka – 8Ono
