Note: The odds for Vissel Kobe vs Cerezo Osaka are correct on Betfred at the time of writing. Please confirm with the bookmaker before placing your bet.

No goals on both ends

This should be a tense fixture, and we don’t expect goals on both ends of the pitch. Our first prediction is premised on how the two teams have fared in recent encounters. Since March 2018, the two teams have met eight times and only one match yielded goals on both ends. A similar trend is evident in the last ten fixtures, with only less than five matches having goals on both sides.

Few Goals Expected

Another plausible outcome in this game is less than three goals at the full time. There have been less than three goals in the last eight meetings between Vissel Kobe and Cerezo Osaka. The last five meetings had two barren draws and three games ended with a scoreline of 1-0. Also, looking at the recent ten games for both sides, only one had more than two goals for the hosts. On the other hand, only two of the last ten fixtures for Cerezo Osaka had more than two goals.

Draw at the Break

Our third tip is a draw by half-time. Given how defensive the two teams play, we expect a deadlocked first half encounter. The two teams are also poor in front of the goal, which further makes our third prediction sensible. Cerezo Osaka has scored more than one goals in only two of their last ten games. The hosts have also netted more than once in two of their last ten games.

Match Preview: Can Vissel Kobe Narrow the Gap to Top Three

The fixture between Vissel Kobe and Cerezo Osaka is not only a quest for the top three but also a fixture between two teams that have always had tense encounters. Find out more in our game preview below.

Vissel Kobe

Vissel Kobe sits 5th on the J.League table and has a game in hand before the Saturday fixture. The hosts have 23 points after 13 games, have scored 18 and conceded 12 goals so far. On home ground, Vissel Kobe is ninth-placed after six games, winning three, drawing twice and losing only one game so far. They have conceded only 3 goals at home in six games and netted seven. However, the hosts would be worried about their dismal performance against Cerezo Osaka going into this fixture. They have registered back to back victories against Cerezo Osaka once, which was in the 2011/12 J. League season.

Cerezo Osaka

With a better record against Vissel Kobe, Cerezo Osaka would fancy a win on Saturday morning. The visitors have registered 9 victories and 4 draws against Vissel Kobe in the last 18 meetings. Moreover, after seven away games played so far, Cerezo Osaka has the fourth-best away record in J.League. They have lost only once on the road so far, drawn and won thrice. However, a shaky defence is worrisome for Atsuhiro Miura as he prepares his men for the Saturday match. The visitors have conceded 9 and scored 11 goals on road. It means out of their 15 goals conceded so far, only 6 have been on home ground. A poor scoring record is, therefore, something Cerezo Osaka manager should address before this game.
