Vegalta Sendai to Win

The hosts are underdogs at home turf in this potential six-point battle for survival. Oita Trinita registered a 3-0 victory on their last visit to the Yurtec Stadium Sendai. However, the previous three meetings ended in Vegalta’s favour. With the visitors winless in their last four fixtures and Vegalta claiming an impressive 3-0 victory over Sanfrecce Hiroshima, they will fancy their chances for a victory.

Total Goals Under 2.5

The last six fixtures involving Oita have seen less than three goals. Vegalta have been involved in goals extravaganza as their defence continues to ship in attempts from all corners of the pitch. Makoto Teguramori’s men need to build on their victory over Hiroshima that saw them score 30% of their goals so far. However, as both sides struggle to score goals, the Under 2.5 is a likely scenario as they face each other on Saturday.

Both Teams to Score: No

The BTTS has been realized just once in Vegalta’s last four competitive engagements. It stands at three in six for the visitors, who have scored a paltry nine goals in 13 outings. There should be plenty of goalmouth action given the porous nature of both defences. However,  it will depend on their ability to efficiently strike home the goals. With no one standing up and getting themselves noted at the top, a low key affair without much goalmouth action is expected.

Vegalta Sendai vs Oita Trinita Fixture Preview

Vegalta Sendai

Adjustments made to the schedule due to the coronavirus pandemic saw Vegalta Sendai keep their J1 League placements after their seventeenth place finish. They cannot have a repeat of the same but after 14 league outings, occupy the same position in the points table. Makoto Teguramori needs to address their slide, chief of which is to return them to scoring ways. Their 3-0 win over Hiroshima should add to their confidence as the season enters its full stride.

Oita Trinita

In the face of a global pandemic, the Azzurro finished last season in the comforts of midtable obscurity. With an increased number of teams and fixtures coming in at them thick, they have let their guard down. While their defence has let them down with 20 goals conceded, however, that number is less than 11th placed FC Tokyo. Trinita’s poor showings in the Japanese top-flight football have come courtesy of their inability to score with regularity. They have only scored nine times this season, the second-worst in the league.
