Kyoto Sanga form and stats

Kyoto Sanga, who have the fewest conceded goals (10) in J2-League, have performed here at Sanga Stadium by Kyocera this season with 5 wins from 8 J2-League matches. Some points have been lost, as they have drawn 2 games and lost 1. Kyoto Sanga has a nice streak going on as they have played twelve consecutive leaguegames without losing (regardless of home/away). They are keen to extend their tally, a streak that began after the Blaublitz Akita defeat 77 days ago.

Times are rough for the home team, having gone 212 minutes without scoring a league goal. S. Kawasaki was the last player to find the net. Nothing to worry about in defence for Kyoto, as their goalkeeper Tomoya Wakahara has completely shut out the opponents for 551 minutes in the J2-League.

Kyoto's previous game was a Emperor Cup match also played at home, ending 3-1 versus Imabari. The home side are looking to build on that result.

0-0 away at Tochigi before that.

The Kyoto manager K. Cho has got the team scoring with 16 from 8 home games in the league. Kyoto's goalkeeper has had to pick the ball out of their own net 8 times. For more goal stats, check the Statistics tab above. There's been improvement defensively lately, as only 0 of these goals has been conceded in their last 3 home matches.
