Nagoya Grampus Eight vs Shonan Bellmare
Japan – J. League
Date: Sunday, 7 July 2019
Kick-off at 10:00 UK/ 11:00 CET
Venue: Toyota Stadium (Toyota City).
Shonan is the worst team in the J1 League at this point. They lost their last five matches in a row and is rapidly making their transition into the relegation zone.
They are on a losing streak on the road too and are easily the underdogs against Nagoya, who had a five-match winning run in front of their home crowd at the start of the season.
But one thing needs to point out though. Despite their higher standing, the hosts of this fixture are winless in their last five attempts, and as such, considers this tie as an opportunity to post a massive win, and get back to their winning ways.
The squad definitely has the confidence of slotting in 27 goals so far, while the top-two have managed just 25 till point.
