Yokohama F.Marinos vs Oita Trinita
Japan – J. League
Date: Saturday, 6 July 2019
Kick-off at 11:00 UK/ 12:00 CET
Venue: Nissan Stadium (Yokohama).
Yokohama is definitely one of the best teams in the competition, but their defense needs to put in better shifts to keep up their stature. In fact, they have conceded even more than the bottom-most Iwata.
One thing that could be said unique about them is their fantastic home form. At this point in the season, the squad remains the only one yet to lose in front of the home crowd.
The current form of the side has severely affected their opponents for this fixture, Oita. The four-game winless run by Trinita may have come to an end the last day, but considerable damage had been done by the time.
The side had lost their podium position, and even their commendable away record seems to be under threat.

Yokohama vs Oita Trinita Prediction
The Marinos was unbeaten in 12 of their last 17 matches and won six of their last ten as well. At home, their record has been very impressive. The squad is on a five-match winning streak and is on an unbeaten run of eleven games.
They also scored two or more goals in three of their last four home appearances, and four or more in two of their last three.
Opponents Oita, meanwhile, was winless in six of their last seven match-ups, and let in two or more goals in three of their last six. On the road, they went without a win in six of their last seven and failed to keep a clean sheet in 17 of their last 19.
Moreover, six of the last nine h2h wins went to Yokohama, and they have scored in every home h2h appearance since 2007. As such, expect them to avoid a loss at all cost. But do take into consideration their shaky defense. The side let in four goals in their last match alone, and importantly, five of the last eight overall h2h clashes and the last three at this venue had the same fate.
Finally, with the visitors being one of the best traveling contingents in the J1 League, it’s logical to expect them to find the back of the net.
