Matsumoto Yamaga Prediction- Can Yamaga pull away from the relegation zone?

Matsumoto Yamaga find themselves in the bottom half of the J-League in 12th place and just 3 points above tonight’s opponents, Vegalta Sendai, but they could lift themselves further away from trouble with a win this evening.

Recent results have seen the hosts record just 1 win out of their last 6 matches overall which was a surprise 1-0 win away at 5th placed Nagoya Grampus.

However, losses to FC Tokyo, Cerezo Osaka and a heavy 5-0 defeat at Kashima Antlers have resulted in the hosts remaining in the bottom half of the J-League.

Yamaga can do themselves a big favour though on Saturday night when they entertain the relegation play-off candidates, Vegalta Sendai at their Naganoken Matsumotodaira Wide Area Park General Stadium.

The hosts possess an ordinary looking home record that stands at 2-2-3 4/7 but they’ve suffered just 1 defeat out of their last 5 matches on home turf.

In the only previous meeting against Vegalta Sendai on home turf, Matsumo Yamaga ran out 1-0 winners back in 2015.

Vegalta Sendai Prediction – Can Nagoya also end losing run?

As mentioned earlier, Vegalta Sendai occupy the relegation play-off spot as they make their way over to face Matsumoto Yamaga, having produced mixed results of late.

Recent wins on home turf at their Yurtec Stadium Sendai over Sanfrecce Hiroshima and Nagoya Grampus have been offset by a very poor away record this season.

The visitors have lost all 7 of their away matches so far this term and they possess a wretched record that stands at 0-0-7 6/16 which includes failing to score in 3 of these 7 matches.

This poor record away from home extends into last season as well as Vegalta Sendai have managed to register just 2 away wins out of their last 15 matches on the road.

These rare wins were recorded at Kashiwa Reysol and Sanfrecce Hiroshima (both last season), but these last 15 away matches have seen the visitors keep just 2 clean sheets in the process.

In addition, Vegalta Sendai have conceded 2 goals or more in 9 of these last 15 away matches and it’s hard to see them getting anything out of Yamaga in this clash.


Key-Facts – Matsumoto Yamaga v Vegalta Sendai

  • Matsumoto Yamaga have lost just 1 of their last 5 matches at home
  • Vegalta Sendai have won just 2 away wins out of their last 15 matches
  • Matsumoto Yamaga beat Vegalta Sendai 1-0 in their previous home meeting
