Team News: V-Varen Nagasaki
Availability isn’t a big problem, with just one fitness concern for the V-Varen Nagasaki boss Makoto Teguramori to be concerned with from an otherwise fully-primed set of players. Masashi Kamekawa (Hamstring Injury) won’t play.
Team News: Fagiano Okayama
Okayama boss Kenji Arima has to currently contend with reduced team options. Kosuke Masutani (Pubis bone irritation), Kazuma Shiina (Cruciate Ligament Rupture), Takuma Takeda (Torn lateral collateral ligament), Shintaro Shimizu (Sprained Ankle) and Yuma Hiroki (Ankle Surgery) won’t be making appearances.
Our thinking is that Fagiano Okayama may well find it hard to score against this V-Varen Nagasaki team who we reckon should score one, at least.
We’re therefore tipping a 1-0 advantage for V-Varen Nagasaki when the referee blows for full-time.
Hopefully it’s a good one.
