Cerezo Osaka to Win

Both Cerezo Osaka and Sanfrecce Hiroshima have exhibited this season what midtable sides have in common, an equal amount of goals scored and conceded. Hiroshima are outsides after losing three of their last five matches. Cerezo will fancy their chances after keeping Andres Iniesta and co. to a 1-1 draw on the road. Going in this fixture, a single point separates them and the match can prove to be a tipping point in their respective seasons. Cerezo should make their home advantage count make life miserable for their visitors.

Total Goals Under 2.5

Hiroshima have scored a paltry three goals in their last five fixtures. Cerezo Osaka have not fared better with four strikes to their names across the same period. Moreover, the last four matches involving Cerezo Osaka have seen less than three goals. Both sides have struggled to score and it looks unlikely that they will turn around their fortunes against each other.

Both Teams to Score: No

The Sakura have been troubled by scoring woes but have only been shut out once in their last four outings. Concerning fixtures at Yanmar Stadium Nagai, one has to go back to December last year for them to draw a blank. Sanfrecce Hiroshima have not been as fortunate and have seen their rivals keep clean sheets in three of their last five away fixtures. Given Hiroshima’s woeful away scoring record, it looks unlikely that the BTTS will be realized in this Sunday fixture.

Cerezo Osaka vs Sanfrecce Hiroshima Fixture Preview

Cerezo Osaka

Levir Culpi have seen his side tumble down the points table. Cerezo Osaka are from the lofted fourth-place finish they managed last season. While their defence has always been a bone for contention, their inability to score regularly has impeded their performances. However, they have gotten a hold of their numbers in recent weeks, especially by keeping a check at the goals conceded. Experienced midfielder Yoshito Okubo has impressed with three goals and three assists as he trails club top-scorer, Tatsuhiro Sakamoto.

Sanfrecce Hiroshima

After starting the season with aplomb, the Viola are in the vicinity of midtable obscurity. Their inability to string together results has cost them points in the league and rooted to the bottom of the YBC Levain Cup. However, all is not lost and they can still manage a decent finish. Hiroshi Jofuku has shored up his side’s defensive issues but they remain uninspired going forward. The rise of young midfielder Yuya Asano has been a highlight of the season. The 18-year-old is leading Sanfrecce Hiroshima’s scoring charts with three goals with one assist.
