Draw

Sagan Tosu secured an impressive 3-1 win over Nagoya Grampus, overtaking them to take fourth place on the points table. They are at home again but a victory is not as straightforward. Cerezo Osaka are their next rivals, who have drawn three matches in succession and another seems to be on the cards in this fixture. With Sagan also registering three stalemates in their last five matches, a draw is a likely scenario.

Under 2.5 Goals

There have been fourteen goals in Cerezo Osaka’s last five matches with three Under 2.5 goals results. On the other hand, Sagan Tosu has seen four of their last five fixtures finish with three goals or less. With both sides tending to low scoring affairs, their coming together should conform to the trend. Expect a low scoring affair where both sides share points.

Both Teams to Score: Yes

This match will be Cerezo Osaka’s first away trip since returning from their continental adventures. They have gotten on the scoreboard in three of their last four away trips. On the other hand, Sagan Tosu has conceded twice in their last four matches, allowing their rivals to get on the scoreboard in two games. Based on the trends both sides have exhibited in recent outings, we expect a tightly contested fixture where both sides should get on the scoreboard.

Sagan Tosu vs Cerezo Osaka Fixture Preview

Sagan Tosu

Kim Myung-hwi’s Sagan Tosu are flying high in the J1 League and with good reason. They have held their rivals with expert defensive performances and ensured that they do enough at the other end of the pitch. Moreover, it is the points they have taken against direct top-four rivals that have allowed them to continue their upwards trajectory. Keita Yamashita has been integral to Sagan Tosu with his goalscoring exploits and will receive the attention of Cerezo Osaka’s defence.

Cerezo Osaka

Owing to their mid-season wobble, the Sakura are far from the fourth place they finished in last season. With half of the season gone, they need to overcome the 12-point advantage they have accrued to their rivals. The first step will be to take points over the teams above them and they have that opportunity against Sagan Tosu, who currently occupy the fourth place. It will not be easy with their defence continuing to concede cheap goals, which now stands at 24 goals and is the main reason they find themselves in the bottom-half of the points table.
