Draw

In their last five matches, Sagan Tosu and Tokyo have scored 8 and 9 goals, respectively. Both sides registered a 3-3 draw in their most recent outings, which was interestingly against the same rival, Cerezo Osaka. There was little to separate them in that fixture and we find it will be the same case on Monday. Their firepower will cancel out each other and a stalemate will be seen at the full-time whistle but Sagan Tosu will edge out with a home advantage. Sagan has won the last four H2H engagements and should build on their tally.

Under 2.5 Goals

In their draws with the Sakura, six goals were witnessed during the 90-minutes of action. There will be a massive correction on that front as both sides will look to address their defensive issues whilst curtailing their offensive charge. Sagan has found a way past Tokyo’s defences in H2H meetings and they should find a way again. However, there will not be many goal scoring chances and it should finish with an Under 2.5 goals scoreline.

Both Teams to Score: No

In two of their last five duels, there were clean sheets observed. Tokyo claimed it in May 2019 while Sagan repaid it in full during their September 2020’s meeting. Sagan’s recent record has seen them accumulate two clean sheets from their last four home engagements. On the other hand, Tokyo has accumulated four in five matches across all competitions. It should be on show again as these sides meet this Monday.

Sagan Tosu vs Tokyo Fixture Preview

Sagan Tosu

Kim Myung-hwi will be pleased with his work in the Sagan Tosu dugout. He has taken a team of strugglers to top-five contention. Improvements have been made across the pitch, especially in defence. The work done in their final third has repaid with only 15 goals conceded, the fewest in the league alongside Kawasaki Frontale. He will fancy his side’s chances even in the absence of Ye-hoon Ueom (fatigue fracture) and Yosuke Yuzawa (cruciate ligament rupture).

FC Tokyo

Kenta Hasegawa’s men were exceptional in their 3-3 draw with Cerezo Osaka. They highlighted their attacking proficiency, converting from their 10 shots on goal, half of what the Sakura managed on the night. That fixture also highlighted that their cannot be relied upon. They have now conceded 30 goals, making them the fifth most porous backline in the J1 League. Hasegawa needs to address this if he wants his charge to finish amongst the top five.
