V-Varen Nagasaki manager H. Matsuda looking for three points in Matsumoto Yamaga showdown

The league table in J2-League tells a story about these teams so far, with V-Varen Nagasaki leading Matsumoto Yamaga by 9 points. Match preview to follow:

Insights:
  • V-Varen Nagasaki have the most matches over the total-line (10) in J2-League
  • Matsumoto Yamaga have the most conceded goals in the second half (18) in J2-League
Best bookmaker betting odds:

There’s little time for restitution or working hard at the training pitch these days, with both teams having played their last game less than four days ago.

These teams have little in common geographically as Matsumoto Yamaga have to travel 1000 kilometers to reach their opponents. The trip home will be especially long if the match ends in defeat.

V-Varen Nagasaki form and stats

V-Varen Nagasaki have collected 12 points from their J2-League home games so far after 3-3-2.

Defensively the home team are doing well, with their goalkeeper Masaya Tomizawa not having conceded a league goal in 272 minutes.

Nagasaki's previous game was a Emperor Cup match also played at home, ending 2-0 versus Okinawa SV. The home side are looking to build on that result.

Before that match, a J2-League win away at Sagamihara.

The hosts are favourites to win this game, with an estimated chance of about 55-60% of that outcome. Earlier Nagasaki matches with similar probabilities have ended with four wins, one draw and zero defeats (from five games).

Nagasaki have proved capable of finding the net in their games here at transcosmos Stadium Nagasaki with 12 goals in 8 league matches. It's worth mentioning that 6 of these goals has been scored in their last three home matches. V-Varen Nagasaki's goalkeeper has had to pick the ball out of their own net 11 times.

Matsumoto Yamaga form and stats

Matsumoto Yamaga have only collected 6 points from their away games in the J2-League, after 1-3-4 (8 played). Three has not been a lucky number for Matsumoto Yamaga as they have been defeated three times in a row since the Zweigen Kanazawa match.

Impressive finishing secured the home win 1-0 against Ryūkyū in their previous game.

The game before that, in the J2-League, was lost at home, a 1-5 defeat against Machida Zelvia.

As mentioned above, the odds for this match puts the home team as favourites. Perhaps this eases the pressure on the away team, who are capable of producing an upset here on a good day. Looking at earlier matches with similar odds and Matsumoto playing away, we found seven games. Results were one away win, one draw and five home wins.

Matsumoto are seemingly not capable of scoring regularly on their travels in the league. They have only managed 4 goals from 8 away games. It's worth mentioning that 2 of these goals has been scored in their last three away matches. Defensive performances away have varied in quality as Matsumoto have conceded 14 goals on the road.
