Omiya Ardija form and stats

Omiya Ardija's struggle is real here at NACK5 Stadium Ōmiya with only 4 points collected from 8 J2-League games. The win-draw-lost numbers are ugly: 1-1-6. All in all it has been a very rough period for Ardija who hasn’t won a league-game in their last twelve attempts. Their previous win was against V-Varen Nagasaki, 78 days ago.

Times are rough for the home team, having gone 225 minutes without scoring a league goal. K. Muramatsu (own goal) was the last player to find the net.

In their previous game, the manager N. Sasaki led his Ardija to a defeat in the Emperor Cup match away at JEF United. The manager is hoping to put things right immediately here at NACK5 Stadium Ōmiya.

Prior to that, an away loss at Zweigen Kanazawa in the J2-League.

The hosts are modest favourites in this match, with the bookmakers estimating the chance of a home win at about 50% +- five percent. It's interesting to look at how Omiya Ardija have performed under similar circumstances, so here are some numbers: When modest favourites like this (we found eleven games) they have won six times, drawn four and lost one.

Omiya Ardija have scored 7 league goals here from 8 matches, not a lot. Omiya Ardija's goalkeeper has had to pick the ball out of their own net 11 times. For more goal stats, check the Statistics tab above.

Tochigi form and stats

As the visiting team in J2-League matches, Tochigi have produced an overall stat of 2-4-3 so far.

Tochigi aren't clicking offensively as they have gone 186 league minutes without a goal. Y. Yanagi was the last player to find the net. The Tochigi goalkeeper Shuhei Kawata is collecting clean sheets like a laundry worker. It's been 270 league minutes without conceding a goal, and counting.

Tochigi are travelling after their nice 2-0 home win in the Emperor Cup against Machida Zelvia (placed 6th).

A 0-0 draw was the result before that, hosting Kyoto Sanga in the J2-League.

Tochigi are the outsiders in this one, but not by much. Their performance in similar games (being the away team and moderate outsiders) is three wins, two draws and ten defeats. From a total of 15 matches.

The visiting Tochigi have scored more than one goal per away game in the league so far. The grand total is 10 goals from 9 games. 12 goals have been conceded by Tochigi in these games.

Head 2 Head

Head-2-head stats last eight meetings: four - three - one (Omiya Ardija wins - draws - Tochigi wins). As for goals, zero matches ended with three or more goals (over 2,5), eight had two or less.
