Urawa Red Diamonds vs Sagan Tosu
Japan – J. League
Date: Saturday, 15th June 2019
Kick-off at 11.00 UK/ 12.00 CET
Venue: Saitama Stadium (Saitama).
Sagan had been one of the worst teams in the competition, but their three league wins in a row brought another perspective to their form. But, the winning run came to an end last day with a loss against Osaka, and at home as well.
The team has scored the least number of goals so far, recording six from their 14 appearances so far, while on the road, they have registered just a single goal from their seven away ties.
Urawa, despite their mid-table standing, is on a five-game winless run in the league and lost four of the last five. And contrary to the usual, they perform well on the road, than at home. They have been the worst home side in the league so far, and have recorded a single win while scoring the least home goals, and conceding the most.
Urawa Red Diamonds vs Sagan Tosu Head-to-head (h2h)

Urawa Red Diamonds vs Sagan Tosu Prediction
Both sides have been performing well off the expected standards and are in no shape to raise any kind of a meaningful challenge. Sagan Tosu did have a surprising crest in their form but ended it with a loss in the last game.
They have scored just six goals so far, failing even to post a rate of 0.5 goals per game, and on the road, they have recorded just a single one so far. They have also won just once away from home, and against Urawa, they failed to net goals in two of the last three clashes.
Urawa has been the worst home team in the league and has registered the fewest goals in front of own fans of all the sides in contention. As things stand, we can expect a dull affair with very few numbers of goals. Also, take into account the fact that eight of the last eleven h2h matches had under 2.5 goals, and five of the last six at this venue too repeated the feat.
