MAIN PREDICTION: DRAW
Matsumoto Yamaga went down 1-0 at Omiya Ardija last weekend in J2. They have lost 1-0 twice this campaign to teams challenging for promotion and will not be too downhearted at their performances so far but they are struggling a little to score – having failed to find the net in three of their seven matches. They have showed they can keep a tight defence, even without Yuya Hashiuchi but they need to sharpen up in front of goal.
Goals from Masovic and Itsuki Oda gave Machida Zelvia a win in a rain-interrupted home game against Tochigi SC last weekend in J2. After five games undefeated to open their season they lost 4-0 in a shocker of a display away at Mito HollyHock two games back, but turned it around immediately to knock off Tochigi SC in a rain-soaked match. They will have regained some confidence after the win and will be a tough opponent.
Matsumoto Yamaga have a win and a draw in their two home games so far and after life on the road for five out of their first seven games they will be happy in front of their own fans, and should do enough to slow down Machida Zelvia here for a low-scoring draw.
SECOND PREDICTION: HILO – LOW
Both of these teams have seen five of their seven games come in at two goals or less in total. And they have seven draws between them in their 14 matches. It has all the makings of a 0-0 or perhaps a 1-1 for me.
HEAD TO HEAD
The last time these two teams met was in 2018 when Machida Zelvia won both matches.
