Fewer than Three Goals on the Books

While the hosts have a better h2h record against Avispa Fukuoka, they come into this fixture as the least favourites going by their recent performances. Therefore, we expect a more defensive approach from Vegalta Sendai as it looks to defend its unbeaten J.League record against Avispa Fukuoka. Moreover, going by how the two teams have fared against each other in previous encounters, we expect a low scoring match on Saturday. Eight out of the last twelve meetings ended with fewer than three goals, a trend likely to continue in this game. The visitors have a better record coming into this fixture, albeit, they haven’t scored more than two goals in each of their last ten games.

Both Teams will Find the Net

Our second option is tipping both teams to find the net. Our argument is that Avispa Fukuoka is a team in great form. The visitors currently sit 6th on the table and have scored more than half of their 17 goals so far on the road. We expect the visitors to find the net at least once in this game. Moreover, the hosts have scored at home every time they played against Avispa Fukuoka in both J.League 1 and J.League 2 encounters. We expect that trend to continue.

Vegalta Sendai will net first

This is quite a risky bet if you look at the form of Vegalta Sendai. However, we are backing the hosts to find the net first and collect at least a point in what is likely going to be a draw game at full time. The hosts have won all their four J.League 1 fixtures against Avispa Fukuoka, and they scored first in all of them. And while most victories for either side have come with a clean sheet, we expect a repeat of the last result that ended 1-1 in July 2016.

Game Preview: Avispa Fukuoka Looking for the First J.League Victory against Vegalta Sendai

This will be an interesting fixture to watch, especially given how the two teams have fared against each other in the past. Find out more in our fixture preview below.

Vegalta Sendai

Vegalta Sendai is a team in poor form but playing against Avispa Fukuoka gives the hosts good memories worth keeping. The hosts have 7 victories against 3 for the hosts in previous encounters. Collecting at least a point in this fixture will, therefore, be a great deal of achievement for tactician Makoto Teguramori and his men. The manager prefers the 4-2-2 formation and has an average of 1.58 points per match. The hosts are second with 7 points collected from the last 13 games.

Avispa Fukuoka

Avispa Fukuoka is 6th on J.League 1 table with 22 points collected from 14 games. The visitors travel to Sendai with only one loss in the last ten games, a form that gives them hope of qualifying for the Asian Champions League. However, lack of victory against Vegalta Sendai in J.League 1 is a major issue for manager Shigetoshi Hasebe who boats of three victories in the last four meetings with Makoto Teguramori. Shigetoshi Hasebe has an average of 1.60 points per match.
