Nagoya Grampus to Win

Vegalta Sendai have been in impressive form of their won, winning two matches in succession for the first time in the 2021 campaign. Meanwhile, the Grampus continue their charge on the points table, following their 0-3 win over Shimizu S-Pulse with a hard-fought draw against Tokushima on the road. They are back in familiar surroundings of the Toyota Stadium to welcome Sendai and are favourites to claim the three points on offer.

Total Goals Under 2.5

Three of the Vegalta Sendai’s five recent fixtures have seen three or more goals. However, two of these matches were at their home and Sendai have struggled for goals on the road. Ever since Kawasaki Frontale made the trip to Nagoya, the Grampus have been in a rut at home. They have failed to trouble the scorers in two of their last three matches, and have seen successive matches see the Under 2.5 come true. With their last three H2H matches seeing Under 2.5 goals, the trend should continue in this fixture.

Both Teams to Score: No

The last four matches at the Toyota Stadium have seen just one side make the scoreboard ticking. Sendai have seen better fortunes in this run and have only failed to register goals in their away fixture against Urawa Reds. History too points towards just one side troubling the official scorers with the last three H2H fixtures seeing just one side get on the scoreboard.

Nagoya Grampus vs Vegalta Sendai Fixture Preview

Nagoya Grampus

Massimo Ficcadenti has overseen an impressive start to the season for Nagoya Grampus. However, the club stands to lose their second-place standing with inconsistent displays. The defeat to Kawasaki Frontale has opened the floodgates, with Kashima Antlers and Tokushima taking points from them. This run has seen them drop eight points and five goals conceded, two less than their tally in the 13 preceding matches.

Vegalta Sendai

Vegalta Sendai could not have hoped for a worse start than they have managed in the 2021 Japanese top-flight football. They accumulated three points from their first ten matches but have since upped the ante with seven points from the following five. Sendai can move out of the relegation slots with a positive result but will need a herculean effort given their scoring woes. They have hit the back of the net a paltry 12 times, averaging 0.8 goals per match. The likes of Takuma Nishimura have improved their output in recent weeks and more of the same is expected from them as they complete the first half of the season.
