Cerezo Osaka to Win

Both Cerezo Osaka and Vegalta Sendai are struggling in the bottom half of the J1 League points table. The visitors are in the relegation slots while the Sakura are fighting to get into the top half. The hosts’ penchant for draws is hurting their chances as they stretch their 12-match unbeaten run across all competitions but nothing to show for in the league. They will surely fancy their chances to get the better of the struggling Vegalta in this fixture.

Under 2.5 Goals

Cerezo Osaka has scored eight goals in their last five fixtures, while Vegalta’s tally stands at four. The scoreboard has only three or more goals in this period three times combined, twice for the hosts and once for the visitors. With both the Sakura and the Phoenix having trouble scoring regularly, this fixture should conclude with an Under 2.5 goals scoreline.

Both Teams to Score: No

Despite registering four draws on the trot, not a singly goalless draw was witnessed for Cerezo Osaka. Levir Culpi has managed to get on the scoreboard irrespective of the opposition. On the other hand, Vegalta Sendai has been shut out twice across the same period. Osaka’s defence is suspect and it should provide Vegalta opportunities to register their mark on the scoreboard. However, given their recent profligacy, we expect them to return empty-handed to the Yurtec Stadium without anything to show for.

Cerezo Osaka vs Vegalta Sendai Fixture Preview

Cerezo Osaka

In line with their last campaign’s heroics, the Sakura were flying high at the start of the campaign. They find themselves in the bottom half of the table and with good reasoning. A series of poor performances coupled with their inability to get past the winning line has cost them their placement on the points table. With AFC Champions League knockout fixtures on the horizon, Levir Culpi needs to address their woes or Cerezo Osaka will be finishing the campaign with their heads between their knees.

Vegalta Sendai

The Phoenix were lucky not to get relegated last campaign due to assurances made due to the coronavirus. It seems they did not learn their lessons and are slated to repeat their mistakes. They are without a win in their last six outings, while their rivals put distance between them. With Cerezo Osaka going through a midseason crisis, Makoto Teguramori will fancy Vegalta Sendai’s chances. The absence of Riku Matsuda due to suspension should also work in their favour.
