Sanfrecce Hiroshima to Win or Draw

The capital club have been in disarray this season. In their last match against Shimizu S-Pulse, FC Tokyo dominated possession but were soundly beaten. Sanfrecce Hiroshima will look to end their two-match winless streak against Tokyo, as they stutter in the league campaign. The morale of Hiroshi Jofuku’s men would be high after their impressive 2-2 draw against Urawa Reds.

Total Goals Over 2.5

Five of the last six matches involved FC Tokyo have seen three or more goals. However, it has been their rivals who claim the lion’s share of the goals, scoring 11 while Tokyo only have six to their names. Sanfrecce Hiroshima are in a similar boat allowing their rivals to outscore them. With both sides struggling at the back, their attackers should get a chance to shine.

Both Teams to Score: Yes

The backlines of both Tokyo and Hiroshima have failed to live up to the expectations. The hosts have conceded 27 times, while the visitors tally stands at an equally abysmal but comparatively better 20. They have failed to keep their rivals at bay and more of the same is expected as they come face to face. With both squads totally of 22 goals from their respective J1 League outings, the scorers should be in action as the scoreboard ticks on either side.

Tokyo vs Sanfrecce Hiroshima Fixture Preview

FC Tokyo

After finishing in sixth place last season, Kenta Hasegawa’s men have struggled to give an account of their abilities. They are languishing in the bottom half of the table and with good reason. They have been unable to translate possession into goals, succumbing to counterattacks of their rivals. With the first half of the campaign coming to a close, they need to regroup and rethink their strategy going forward. Diego needs to be in the centre of their plans as the Brazilian continues to pitch in goals despite struggling with the Covid-19.

Sanfrecce Hiroshima

The Viola continue to impress in the Japanese top-flight football, punching above their weights with their assembly of players. Hiroshi Jofuku is on course to deliver another top-half finish for Sanfrecce Hiroshima. It is easier said than done and even the struggling Tokyo will pose a problem for them. The capital club has the upper hand in their recent meetings, winning three to Sanfrecce’s one. One player to keep an out in this fixture is 18-year-old Yuya Asano. The Japanese youngster is leading their goalscoring charts and was on the scoreboard in their most recent win over Cerezo Osaka.
