Team News: Matsumoto Yamaga
Almost everyone can be considered, as there’s just a single fitness concern for the Matsumoto Yamaga manager Yasuharu Sorimachi to contend with from a near full-strength squad. Hayuma Tanaka (Meniscus Damage) is out of contention.
Team News: Renofa Yamaguchi
Yamaguchi manager Masahiro Shimoda has to currently contend with reduced team options. Kaito Oki (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) and Ryohei Yoshihama (Biceps femoris muscle injury) are not able to play. Henik is ineligible for this match because of suspension.
Our assessment here is that Renofa Yamaguchi could find themselves up against it to get anything against this Matsumoto Yamaga team who we reckon should score at least once to gain the upper hand.
We’ve gone for a very competitive game with a 1-0 advantage for Matsumoto Yamaga at the end of this game.
Let’s see what happens.
