Match Time:7/29/2020 18:00 Wednesday（GMT+8）
Ryuhei Oishi is Zweigen Kanazawa's only injury concern.
Omiya Ardija have given no updates on Noriyoshi Sakai, so he should still be considered doubtful, while Keisuke Nishimura was injured on the weekend game and is also being diagnosed. Takumu Fujinuma and Takashi Kasahara are still missing.
Injured/Unavailable: Ryuhei Oishi (knee surgery).
Doubtful: Keisuke Nishimura, Noriyoshi Sakai
Injured/Unavailable: Takumu Fujinuma (knee surgery), Takashi Kasahara (calf), Keisuke Nishimura (unspecified).
MAIN PREDICTION: AWAY WIN
Zweigen Kanazawa destroyed J2 whipping boys ThespaKusatsu Gunma 5-0 away from home last weekend in J2, Lucao scored two, and Mutsuki Kato and Takumi Hasegawa also registered, along with an own goal to add to the total. They have two away wins running after just one win in their first five games of the season, but we should not be too excited about victories over Tochigi SC and ThespaKusatsu Gunma and today's visitors will be a much harder opponent!
Substitute Akira Toshima score in the 68th minute, three minutes after coming on, to give Omiya Ardija a 1-0 home win over Matsumoto Yamaga last weekend in J2, ending a run of two 1-0 away defeats. Goals have been hard to come by but their defence has been holding firm with just three goals conceded including those two 1-0 defeats. A win last weekend will have relived any early pressure they must have been feeling after the somewhat surprising losses and they will be ready to march on here.
While they scored a hatful last weekend the opponents were dire and Zweigen Kanazawa will not find this game as easy. Expect an away win, but not too many goals.
SECOND PREDICTION: HILO – LOW
With just 10 goals in total in their seven games so far this season, Omiya Ardija will be content with a low-scoring win, perhaps 1-0 will be enough.
HEAD TO HEAD
In J2 matches between these two teams last season both games were drawn.
