An interesting characteristic of recent Avispa Fukuoka games is the number of results with a nil in them.
Taking their previous sextet of clashes leading up to this one, in as many as 5 of them a bet on “Both Teams to Score” would have been a loser.

Team News: Avispa Fukuoka
Avispa Fukuoka manager Kiyokazu Kudo will be grateful to have no fitness concerns whatsoever before this match thanks to a completely healthy squad available to select from.
Team News: FC Ryukyu
Ryukyu boss Yasuhiro Higuchi has to choose from a squad that has some fitness concerns. Kosuke Inose (Meniscus Damage), Yu Tomidokoro (Biceps femoris muscle injury), Tetsuya Chinen (Meniscus Damage) and Ryohei Okazaki (Thigh muscle rupture) are those who can’t be considered.
We feel that FC Ryukyu must be fancied to find the net against this Avispa Fukuoka lineup, however it probably shouldn’t prevent them from conceding a couple at the other end.
We can see a close game with a 2-1 advantage for Avispa Fukuoka when all is said and done. Should be a good one.
