The home fans haven’t been spoiled with victories in the J2-League this season. JEF United have only managed 1 win, 4 draws and 3 losses from their games here at Fukuda Denshi Arena. Their last two home games have resulted in two points, meaning they were both draws.

JEF's previous game was a Emperor Cup match also played at home, ending 1-0 versus Omiya Ardija (placed 21st). The home side are looking to build on that result.

Before that, JEF drew at home versus Montedio Yamagata.

Tokyo Verdy form and stats

The hunting on away grounds haven’t been very fruitful for Tokyo Verdy so far with only 5 points returning home. The records show 1-2-3 (win-draw-lose).

Tokyo Verdy play their second away game in a row, but can be confident going into this one after the 1-0 victory visiting Fagiano Okayama (placed 16th). H. Ide came off the bench to score the winning goal in the match against Fagiano Okayama last time out, making the manager H. Nagai feel like a tactical genius. The end of the last match, against Fagiano Okayama, was very satisfying as H. Ide scored the winning goal deep into overtime.

Before that, Tokyo Verdy secured a home win against Blaublitz Akita with the score 3-1.

So, this is expected to be a close game, an even contest. Looking at earlier matches with Tokyo Verdy playing away and similar expectations, we found eleven relevant matches. Results were three Tokyo wins, five draws and three defeats.

A quick return to home after this game, as Tokyo are hosting Fagiano Okayama in the Emperor Cup only three days away.

Many goals are not expected from the visiting Tokyo as they have only managed to score 4 times from 6 away games in the league. It's worth mentioning that 2 of these goals has been scored in their last three away matches. Tokyo have conceded 14 goals in these games.

Head 2 Head
