Shonan Bellmare Prediction – Can Shonan end a 4-match spell without a win at home?

Mid-table Shonan Bellmare occupy 10th place in the J-League and they head into Friday evening’s encounter with Yokohama on the back of a heavy 4-1 defeat away at Vissel Kobe last time out at the NOEVIR Stadium Kobe.

The hosts haven’t had the best of things in recent weeks as they’ve managed to record just 2 wins from their last 8 matches overall in the J-League which were victories gained over Sagan Tosu and Urawa Reds, in 2-0 and 3-2 wins respectively and both away from home.

Meanwhile on home turf, the hosts have now gone 4 matches without a win on home soil which includes defeats to Jubilo Iwata and Oita Trinita, along with 1-1 draws with Matsumoto Yamaga and Nagoya Grampus respectively.

An indifferent looking home record of 2-2-3 8/9 shouldn’t cause visitors Yokohama F Marinos too many problems on Friday night, along with having kept just 1 clean sheet from their first 7 home matches of this new campaign.

Yokohama F Marinos Prediction – Can Yokohama jump into 2nd place?

High-flying Yokohama F Marinos sit in 5th place in the Japanese top flight but all three points on Friday night would see the visitors lift themselves up into 2nd place and just 3 points behind the current league leaders, Tokyo FC.

The visitors make their way to Hiratsuka having won 4 of their last 5 matches overall in the J-League which includes wins against Kashima Antlers, Sanfrecce Hiroshima, Vissel Kobe and Jubilo Iwata, and it’s been this positive winning sequence that has kept the visitors in the frame for a possible top three finish and AFC Champions League involvement.

Yokohama have suffered just 1 defeat from these last 5 matches and that was a 3-0 loss at 9th placed Cerezo Osaka, and if the visitors have ambitions of AFC Champions League football next season, they’ll need to improve upon their current away record which stands at an inconsistent looking 3-0-3 7/10.

Yokohama’s last 10 away matches have seen the visitors alternate between wins and defeats and this is something that former Australian national coach, Ange Postecoglou will need to address quickly if his side are to remain serious challengers.


Key-Facts – Shonan v Yokohama

  • Shonan Bellmare are without a home win from their last 4 matches
  • Shonan Bellmare have won just 3 of their last 16 home matches in the J-League
  • Yokohama have won their last 2 visits to Shonan in the J-League


Betting Tips Verdict

Shonan Bellmare haven’t been convincing at home in recent weeks and Yokohama’s recent winning momentum could be the difference here.
