J.League 1 R4 – Hiroshima vs Matsumoto Preview

Sanfrecce Hiroshima – Matsumoto Yamaga:

Hiroshima got 1-2-0 so far in the league which is more than they deserve as they’ve been playing really poor in all 3 matches. Vs Cerezo last round they created basically nothing, and scored only after a big mistake in Cerezo’s defence.  But I guess they deserve credit for still picking up points, and they also beat Melbourne Victory at home in ACL midweek.

Matsumoto got 1-1-1 so far and all 3 matches for them have been closely fought. They did well vs Urawa last round and probably deserved atleast a point in that match but ended up losing 0-1 instead.

Once again we have 2 teams that struggles in attack and I don’t think we’ll see much chances here either. Hiroshima are favorites being at home, but Matsumoto could easily get away with a point or 3 too.

Expected Starting Lineup Hiroshima:
2Nogami – 5Yoshino – 19Sasaki

Team Strength:


Prediction: 1-0 or 1-1

Odds Info:
Hiroshima have been made too big favorites so Matsumoto 1×2 @ 4,14 (10 units) could be worth a shot. Nothing on the totals.
