Machida: Winless in last 8 home games (Recent Form: LLWDDL)

Machida are on 16th place in Japanese J-League Division 2 with 25 points (6 wins, 7 draws, 8 losses; goal difference 20:30). They have currently 8 points of advantage over 21th Avispa Fukuoka (relegation zone), whereas the distance to 5th Omiya Ardija (promotion play-off) is 11 points at the moment. The team is rather in poor shape – 1 win, 2 draws, 2 losses in last 5 league matches. In the meantime, they were eliminated from Emperors Cup by Toyama (0:1) in round of 64. Machida take on Avispa Fukuoka on Sunday in the next league fixture. Machida have collected 11 points in 10 home games to date (2 wins, 5 draws, 3 defeats; goal difference 10:14).


Avispa Fukuoka: Relegation candidates (Recent Form: LDLLDL)

Avispa Fukuoka sit on 21th position in the standings with 17 points (4 wins, 5 draws, 12 defeats; goal difference 20:35). They are now in drop zone, but being equal on points with 20th Tochigi (safe spot) so it remains possible to avoid troubles. However, their recent form is bad – 0 wins, 1 draw, 4 defeats in last 5 games in J-League Division 2. Meanwhile, they beat Kagoshima United (2:1) in Emperors Cup in last 64. Now it’s time for an away encounter. Avispa Fukuoka have collected 11 points in 10 matches on the road (3 wins, 2 draws, 5 losses; goal difference 13:17).



In conclusion, I believe that hosts are favourites of this clash. Although Machida are currently on a winless run in front of their fans, it’s worth noting that Avispa Fukuoka are in really bad form lately so perhaps the home side may get the 3 points in this fixture.
