MAIN PREDICTION: AWAY WIN
ThespaKusatsu Gunma went down 5-0 at home to Zweigen Kanazawa last weekend in J2. My suggestion that they would find life hard in J2 is coming true with a vengeance, as they have now conceded 18 goals and have failed to score in five of their seven games. They have one away win to their name in which they managed to beat a very out-of-form Montedio Yamagata but are struggling to put anything together here and will be thankful there is no relegation slated for 2020.
Tochigi SC were defeated 2-0 at Machida Zelvia last weekend in J2. It was the first time they had conceded two goals this season after three 1-0 losses. Their tight defence is known now, but they have scored just three goals this season, also, and a tight defence is no use if they cannot score. They will be confident of a win here, but they have to score to do that!
Surely Tochigi SC can pull the win in this game against the team that everyone should beat.
SECOND PREDICTION: HILO – LOW
This is ThespaKusatsu Gunma here so the chances of them keeping the score down to one are slim, but Tochigi SC are not that dominant in front of goal either. 0-1 or 0-2.
HEAD TO HEAD
The last time these two teams met was in J2 in 2015 when each team won their home game.
