FC Tokyo vs Shonan Bellmare Prediction

Shonan were on the road the last match-day, and it affected their performance considerably well. They did try their best to stand toe to toe with C-Osaka, but the guests had no answer for the lone goal scored by the hosts, in the 50th minute.

Tokyo meanwhile defeated Iwata, on the road, via another lone goal, that came in the form of a penalty.

The capital contingent are placed at the top of the table and easily have been the best team in the league. They are on a three-match winning streak, and at home, recorded 17 wins from their last twenty-two appearances.

On the other hand, their opposite number is on a six-match losing run and a nine-game winless run. They garnered a 1-18 combined scorecard in favor of their opponents from their last five matches, and on the road, the team is on a three-match losing run.

Finally, the toppers have dominated this opponent in h2h encounters in the last decade. In fact, the potential champions recorded nine of the past eleven such wins, and have lost only once against this opponent since 2002.

Considering all these factors, the top pick for the day is easily a win for Tokyo.
