Albirex Niigata will be looking to improve on their last outing here following the 2-0 J1 League loss in their previous game against Júbilo Iwata.

In that game, Albirex Niigata had 63% possession and 14 shots on goal with 4 on target. Jubilo Iwata had 20 attempts on goal with 5 on target. Ryo Germain (75', 79') scored for Júbilo Iwata.

It has been seldom in recent times that Albirex Niigata have shown defensive steel. It will be a concern for them that Albirex Niigata have seen their defence breached in 5 of their previous 6 matches, giving up 7 goals along the way. Such a pattern isn’t assured to be carried forward into this game, though.

Analysis of their past results shows that Albirex Niigata:

  • have not lost a league tie with Cerezo Osaka in their last 3 games.
  • have not been beaten in their last 8 home league matches. They have been so resilient here.

Over the course of their previous half-dozen clashes, Cerezo Osaka have amassed a tally of 10 goals. Cerezo Osaka have also scored in every single one of those games. Over that period, they have had 5 goals go into their own net.

Their previous form shows that Cerezo Osaka:

  • have left without a victory over Albirex Niigata in away games against them for the last 4 league games. They'll be keen to stop this run.
  • are undefeated in their previous 3 league matches away from home.

ℹ️ Team News: Albirex Niigata

The Albirex Niigata boss Rikizo Matsuhashi has zero fitness concerns at all ahead of this game with a completely injury-free squad to pick from.

🗞️ Team News: Cerezo Osaka

Cerezo Osaka boss Akio Kogiku has to contend with a number of unavailable players. Ryosuke Shindo (Hamstring injury) and Shinnosuke Kinoshita (Hamstring muscle injury) are those who can’t be considered.

🧠 Prediction

We feel that Cerezo Osaka and Albirex Niigata could both well score here although it’s hard to see a clear-cut winner.

There should be little in it, and a draw looks to be quite a realistic result. We’re therefore tipping a very close game with a 1-1 scoreline after 90 minutes.
