MAIN PREDICTION: AWAY WIN
Mito HollyHock went down 1-0 at Albirex Niigata last weekend in J2. After a surprise waking up of their season with a 4-0 home win over Machida Zelvia two games back, they succumbed last week and went back to their very mediocre season. Two wins and two draws in their seven games is about all they deserve and I have seen little to impress me in this campaign.
Ryohei Arai and Junior Barros scored the goals that gave Ventforet Kofu a 2-1 home win over JEF United Chiba last weekend in J2. It was their third win in four matches as their season finally comes to life. They have won three matches at home so far this campaign but have two draws and a loss away from home. This should be the game that they get their first away win of the season.
Mito HollyHock are struggling to match their exploits last season and will suffer against the slowly-improving Ventforet Kofu today.
SECOND PREDICTION: HILO – LOW
Ventforet Kofu's wins have come 2-1 (twice) and 1-0 – so not too many goals - and I feel that their away form means that they will concentrate on the back line not conceding rather than the forward line in this match, to improve their away form. And it will work, a low-scoring win.
HEAD TO HEAD
In J2 matches between these two teams last season Mito HollyHock won away and drew at home.
