MATCH PREVIEW MAIN PREDICTION: AWAY WIN
Bellmare won 2-0 away at Nagoya Grampus last weekend in J1, with the goals coming from Mitsuki Saito and Daiki Kaneko. After five defeats running in the league they managed a win but it was more a case of a dire opponent than a great performance from Bellmare. Grampus were terrible! But, after scoring just two goals in five league matches, and winning no points, a 2-0 win will be more than welcome however it comes.
David Villa scored a magical goal for Vissel last weekend in J1 but the team went down 2-1 to Shimizu S-Pulse in the end. After a five-game unbeaten run in J1 – with three wins and two draws – Vissel were unlucky to lose this one and some of the touches from Villa – especially for his goal – were magical. Both he and Andres Iniesta seem to have settled in well now and I expect to see more brilliance from these players as Vissel continue to improve performances in the coming weeks.
Despite the forms switching last week, the current form before last week's games for both teams would suggest that last week was a fluke for both teams and Vissel will do enough to win this one.
SECOND PREDICTION: FIRST TEAM TO SCORE - VISSEL
Vissel have been the first team to score in two of their last three away league games. Expect an early start from them, and the win in the end.
HEAD TO HEAD
In J1 matches between these two teams last season each team won their away match while earlier this season Vissel won the home fixture.
