Consadole Sapporo vs Sagan Tosu
Japan – J. League
Date: Saturday, 22 June 2019
Kick-off at 06:00 UK/ 07:00 CET
Venue: Sapporo Atsubetsu Stadium (Sapporo).
Tosu is at the extreme bottom of the table and has been struggling to not post the worst stats in many major areas. They have so far scored just seven goals, returning a rate of below 0.5 goals per tie. The team did have a three-game winning run, but it was followed by back-to-back losses, and especially the last one was heartbreaking.
Sagan had managed to take the lead, on the road, but the hosts, Urawa, equalized 13 minutes later and hit the winning goal in the 90+3rd minute.
Sapporo has been on steady flow and has lost just once in their last five match-days, which was against the topper, Tokyo. The last day, they had a back-and-forth match with Kawasaki, away from home. The hosts were awarded an early penalty, which was missed though.
Another penalty to the visitors saw them taking the lead, but the 69th-minute goal by Yu Kobayashi settled the game with each team taking a point apiece.
