PREDICTION: HOME WIN
Tokushima Vortis experienced a 2-0 away defeat at Giravanz Kitakyushu on Wednesday night in J2. Two losses in three games and three losses overall this season has seen the team disappoint so far but there have been flashes of brilliance and we can see the potential this team has. A 4-0 home win over Renofa Yamaguchi, a 3-0 home win against Tokyo Verdy and a difficult 2-0 away win at Jubilo Iwata show that this team has the goods, but need more consistency. Their two recent losses have come against teams currently sitting in the top of the table, so they will need to beat these teams to move up the table.
Montedio Yamagata earned a point in a 0-0 home draw with JEF United Chiba on Wednesday night in J2. It was their fifth draw this season, and they have won just one game so far – 1-0 at home to Tochigi SC on the day that J2 restarted in late June. They have disappointed and look low in confidence. Two 0-0 draws mean they haven't scored in their last two games. They need to do better, but can they?
Tokushima Vortis have the squad, and the home advantage to handle their visitors on this one and return to moving up the table.
HEAD TO HEAD
In J2 matches between these two teams last season Montedio Yamagata won at home and drew away, before Tokushima Vortis won 1-0 in the promotion play-offs at the end of the season.
