Best bookmaker betting odds:

It’s busy days for these teams as both were in action only a few days ago. There’s no rest for the wicked, or in this case; no rest for Tokyo and Oita Trinita.

It's quite the trip for Oita Trinita when visiting Tokyo as the cities are 900 kilometers apart.

Tokyo form and stats

4 victories, 0 draws and 3 defeats. That’s what Tokyo have to build on here at Ajinomoto Stadium in the J-League.

Tokyo manager K. Hasegawa and his team return home after a 2-2 draw away versus Vissel Kobe (placed 11th) in the J-League. Ahead of that match, Tokyo won a home game hosting Yokohama (2-1).

The betting market estimate that the home team has about 55-60% chance of winning this match. There could be betting value if you think differently, so to help you here are the stats from Tokyo's earlier matches at home being 55%-60% favourite: Played eight games, won six matches, drawn one and lost one.

Another home game is coming up fairly shortly for the hosts, as Vegalta Sendai are coming to town in four days.

The Tokyo fans have had their share of opportunities to cheer home goals this season, having seen 11 goals in 7 league matches. Tokyo's goalkeeper has had to pick the ball out of their own net 10 times. For more goal stats, check the Statistics tab above.

Oita Trinita form and stats

The hunting on away grounds haven’t been very fruitful for Oita Trinita so far with only 7 points returning home. The records show 2-1-5 (win-draw-lose).

It's the second away game in a row for Oita Trinita, but there's smiles all around after the 3-0 victory versus Vegalta Sendai (placed 16th) in the J-League last time out. A draw for Trinita before that, at their own venue hosting Shonan Bellmare (2-2).

Looking at the earlier recent performances of Trinita when being an outsider away as they are today, we find four matches with the visitors losing two times, drawing one and winning one game.

A quick return to home after this game, as Oita Trinita are hosting Yokohama in the J-League only four days away.

Oita Trinita have a decent goal production going in their away games, although not fantastic. In 8 league away games 10 goals have been scored. Trinita have conceded 13 goals in these games.

Head 2 Head

This is the result when the teams met earlier this season; Oita Trinita - Tokyo 0-1. Tokyo-Oita Trinita H2H statistics last ten meetings regardless of arena: Tokyo five wins, Oita Trinita two wins, three draws. three of these ten matches had three or more goals (over 2,5).
