J.League 1 R27 – Shimizu vs Gamba Preview

Shimizu S-Pulse – Gamba Osaka: Shimizu are not in a particular good form with just 2-1-5 on their last 8 matches and they have gone 3 in a row at home without winning.  They get back their key FW Douglas for this match though which is boost. Gamba took their first away-win of the season…

J.League 1 R26 – Kobe vs Gamba Preview

Vissel Kobe – Gamba Osaka: Gamba are still the only team yet to win away in the league, and got 0-2-10 overall on 12 matches. They get back their best FW in Hwang for this match, which is quite important. They have also made some changes tactically and swapped out several players, but I doubt…

J.League 1 R26 – Kawasaki vs Consadole Preview

Kawasaki Frontale – Consadole Sapporo: Consadole have never won away against Kawasaki, with an abysmal record of 0-0-8. However, Consadole of the old days is not comparable to how they are now, and Kawasaki have already lost 4 matches at  home this season so this year might be their chance. Kawasaki have been quite under…

J.League 1 R26 – Reysol vs Shimizu Preview

Kashiwa Reysol – Shimizu S-Pulse: Reysol aren’t in the best of form, and they have particularly struggled at home where they’ve lost 7 out of their last 9 matches. However, the 5-1 win vs Nagasaki in their last home-match was a nice boost, and their defence have also been strengthened here with Daisuke Suzuki having…

J.League 1 R26 – Nagoya vs Nagasaki Preview

Nagoya Grampus – V-Varen Nagasaki: Nagoya will be without one of their key players here in Gabriel, but they should still have enough strength to blow Nagasaki off the pitch and win this one easily. I can’t understand how a team with 7 straight wins can only be regarded as a -0,5 favorite vs a…

J.League 1 R26 – Sagan vs Hiroshima Preview

Sagan Tosu – Sanfrecce Hiroshima: Sagan’s form have improved dramatically over the last couple of weeks, and now got 3 straight home-wins. They got 4-2-1 on their last 7 at  home, and I think they got a good chance of another strong result here. Sanfrecce may be the best away-team in the league with 9-2-1…

J.League 1 R26 – Kashima vs Shonan Preview

Kashima Antlers – Shonan Bellmare: Kashima have been quite good at home lately with just 1 loss in their last 9 home-matches but they have a tendency to screw up every now and then. Shonan have won 4 out of their last 7 away-matches, including strong wins vs Urawa, Kobe and Reysol. They also took…

J.League 1 R26 – Cerezo vs Iwata Preview

Cerezo Osaka – Jubilo Iwata: I expect Cerezo to win this one, but with both Kiyotake and Sugimoto missing they are a bit weakened and have also shown some irregular form at home lately.  Key MF Nakamura is back in the starting lineup for Iwata after a lengthy injury-spell, and it could be worth considering…

J.League 1 R25 – Tokyo vs Sagan Preview

FC Tokyo – Sagan Tosu: Tokyo seemed to be a genuine contender for the title a couple of weeks ago, but they have now gone 4 matches in a row without winning. They’ve looked poor play-wise as well and could easily suffer another setback here I think. Sagan are slowly but steadily improving, and now…

J.League 1 R25 – Hiroshima vs Kashima Preview

Sanfrecce Hiroshima – Kashima Antlers: With just 3 wins in their last 8 matches Sanfrecce’s form have dipped a bit lately and their what seemed like a safe lead at the top of the table have now shrunk to only 6 points, and can further shrink to 3 points if Kawasaki win their game in…
