Vegalta Sendai to Win or Draw

Cerezo Osaka are winless in five J1 League away fixtures, losing three and drawing two. Vegalta Sendai occupies the relegation slots but has found form in the comfort of the Yurtec Stadium Sendai, winning three of their last five competitive engagements. Historically, the hosts have stuttered against their much-fancied rivals in H2H encounters,  with their last win coming in June 2012. However, form is on their side in this Covid19 marred season and they should be able to be on the right side of history in this fixture.

Total Goals Over 2.5

The Sendai based outfit have seen three of their last five fixtures exhibiting the Over 2.5 odds come true. They have conceded seven goals in this period whilst sending eight in reply. Cerezo Osaka’s away form has been woeful, to say the least. They have only scored once in their last five fixtures but kept damage minimal with four goals conceded. With Sendai continuing to be plagued at the back, Cerezo should be able to get on the scoreboard in an error-prone fixture laden with goals on Sunday.

Both Teams to Score: Yes

Cerezo Osaka have been shut out four times in their last five away fixtures. They only have one goal to their names while their defence conceded a paltry four goals. However, their four goals have come in four fixtures, three of them ending in defeat. Meanwhile, Vegalta have reversed their league woes in recent outings, scoring eight goals in five outings with two clean sheets to boast off. Cerezo Osaka does have pedigree in this fixture and have scored in each of their eight prior meetings, accumulating 19 goals in the process. With history on their side and Vegalta boasting of the second-worst defensive record in the J1 League, goals should be seen on either side of the pitch.

Vegalta Sendai vs Cerezo Osaka Fixture Preview

Vegalta Sendai

The Falcons were runners-up in the J1 League as early as the 2012 season. However, they have seen their fortunes dwindle in recent campaigns and were saved from the ignominy of relegation by rules adopted due to the coronavirus pandemic. They will not be lucky this time around and Makoto Teguramori has his work cut out for him with his squad continuing to struggle. Their struggles in from of the goal have haunted them with only thirteen goals scored. The defence has not helped their cause either with 29 goals conceded, the second-most in the league. However, they have picked up two victories in succession and seem to be on the correct trajectory as the first half of the campaign ends.

Cerezo Osaka

After a noteworthy start, the Sakura’s fortunes have been on a downward trajectory of late. Levir Culpi’s men are winless in five matches, their last three-point outing coming over a month ago. Tatsuhiro Sakamoto has impressed in Cerezo Osaka’s cause, chipping in with three goals and three assists but his peers have let him down. Veteran forward Yoshito Okubo was supposed to lead and started the campaign brightly with five goals in five matches. However, Okubo has gone missing in recent months, the last of his five goals this campaign coming back in March. Before his 16-minute cameo in the 1-0 loss to Kashima Antlers, he had missed three games on the trot.
