Consadole Sapporo vs Matsumoto Yamaga Prediction & Match Preview

Consadole Sapporo vs Matsumoto Yamaga
Japan – J. League
Date: Sunday, 7 July 2019
Kick-off at 06:00 UK/ 07:00 CET
Venue: Sapporo Atsubetsu Stadium (Sapporo).

Yamaga is languishing in the bottom tier of the table, with no land in sight. They lost the last three league games in a row and offensively has been nothing but the worst. The team remains the only one yet to register ten goals in the league.

Their only hope to shake off the exit-zone-tag is the bad form of the squads above them, but first, Matsumoto themselves have to start putting points on the board.

Against Sapporo, an opponent vying to get into the Champions League spots, nothing much is expected from the underdogs. Also, Consadole lost their last match, putting an end to their unbeaten run, and will be looking for reparations. The game against the lower-strata squad could not have come at a better time.

  • At this venue, Matsumoto has never kept a clean sheet.

Consadole Sapporo vs Matsumoto Yamaga Prediction

Yamaga lost their last three matches in a row and was winless in 17 of their last 20. Also, they could register just three goals in total from their last 11 fixtures. On the road, they lost four of their last five and could net just a single goal from these last five combined.

In addition, the team was winless in eight of their last nine away from home, and lost every visit to this venue, except for one.

Going on, Sapporo recorded four of the last five h2h wins and kept clean sheets in the last two. Moreover, they were unbeaten in 14 of their last 17 ties and won three of their last four as well. At home, they went invincible in seven of their last eight attempts and won six of these too. They also scored two or more goals in five of their last eight, while conceding just twice in their last four appearances at home.

Importantly, Yamaga is one of the worst squads in the competition, and is on the road, against a side that is trying to get into a podium position. Also, the former has made the least returns in the goal-scoring front, and rightfully takes the tag of the massive underdogs.
