Team News: Consadole Sapporo
Consadole Sapporo manager Mihailo Petrović has to currently contend with reduced team options. Gabriel Xavier (Hamstring Injury), Takuro Kaneko (Medial Collateral Ligament Injury) and Tsuyoshi Ogashiwa (Hamstring Injury) can’t be considered. Daiki Suga is ineligible for this match because of suspension.
We believe that Consadole Sapporo have the ability to breach the defence of this Shonan Bellmare side, however that isn’t expected to be as many as they’ll concede.
