Oita Trinita vs Sagan Tosu
Japan – J. League
Date: Saturday, 4 July 2020
Kick-off at 10:30 UK/ 11:30 CET
Venue: Oita Bank Dome.
Azzurro may have finished above Kim Myung-hwi’s men on the table, but they had been struggling by the time the last season had come to an end. On top of that, they have also lost their opener in the current season.
On the other hand, their counterparts displayed great competitive spirit in avoiding relegation, and had improved their form a lot towards the end of the past campaign. Furthermore, they also have a great h2h record against this rival over the years.
As such, expect the better performance from Sagan Tosu this game week.

Oita Trinita vs Sagan Tosu: Prediction
Azzurro are on a four-game losing run, and they had failed to score a single goal in any of these fixtures. They were also winless in 17 of their preceding 20 overall match-ups. And at home, they had lost four of their past six appearances.
On the other hand, Myung-hwi’s men were unbeaten in six of their last eight trips on the road, and importantly, they had recorded six of the preceding eight h2h wins. They had also scored two or more goals in eight of the former eleven h2h clashes, and have lost just once at this venue since 2008.
Taking into account these stats, expect Sagan Tosu to deliver an impressive performance this Saturday.
