The home fans are expecting three points in this fixture, as the home advantage should be put to good use versus a struggling visitor. Oita Trinita are in the 12th position while the guesting Yokohama worry at 14th.
There haven't been much time to rest for the hosts, as they played a J-League match only four days ago. At least it's nice to return home after that away game at Tokyo.
These teams have little in common geographically as Yokohama have to travel 900 kilometers to reach their opponents. The trip home will be especially long if the match ends in defeat.
Oita Trinita form and stats
When playing at home in the J-League, Oita Trinita have managed 2 wins, 3 draws and suffered 3 defeats from 8 games.
Trinita enjoyed a nice away win last time out, playing at Tokyo's place. The match ended 3-2 with T. Tanaka, N. Nomura and R. Matsumoto scoring. In the preceding match a 3-0 victory visiting Vegalta Sendai.
Manager T. Katanosaka felt very clever after N. Nomura scored the winning goal against Tokyo, having brought on that player as a substitute in the 67th minute.
This is expected to be a close game, with Oita Trinita perhaps considered small favourites due to their home advantage. Looking back at earlier matches similar to this one (expected to be close with Oita Trinita as a small favourite), we find 13 games. Trinita has won five of these, drawn five and lost three.
There's a new fixture coming up fairly quickly for Oita Trinita, as the J-League home game vs Sanfrecce Hiroshima is only three days away.
Trinita have scored 7 league goals here from 8 matches, not a lot. Trinita's goalkeeper has had to pick the ball out of their own net 11 times. For more goal stats, check the Statistics tab above.
Yokohama form and stats
The hunting on away grounds haven’t been very fruitful for Yokohama so far with only 7 points returning home. The records show 2-1-4 (win-draw-lose). The travelling fans think it's time that their travel expenses are covered with some points now, as Yokohama have lost on their last two travels.
Yokohama won their last game, 3-2 versus Nagoya Grampus played at home. A 1-2 defeat away at Tokyo before that.
Y. Senuma came off the bench to score the winning goal in the match against Nagoya Grampus last time out, making the manager T. Shimotaira feel like a tactical genius.
As mentioned above, this is an open game with no clear favourite. We have found nine similar matches played by Yokohama in our archives, and the results are: three wins for Yokohama, two draws and four defeats.
The visitors will be packing their bags again in only three days as another away game awaits: The J-League trip to Kawasaki Frontale.
The visiting Yokohama have scored more than one goal per away game in the league so far. The grand total is 9 goals from 7 games. The Yokohama manager T. Shimotaira has some worries about the defense as 15 goals have been conceded in these travels.
Head 2 HeadAs for the last ten games between these two teams, there's three Trinita victories, four draws and three Yokohama wins. Over/under statistics; four of these games ended with three goals or more, six matches with two goals or less.
