Insights:
  • Sagan Tosu have not yet lost a game at home.
  • Tokyo have the fewest dropped points from leading position (0) in J-League

These teams have little in common geographically as Tokyo have to travel 1000 kilometers to reach their opponents. The trip home will be especially long if the match ends in defeat.

It's no vacation for neither Sagan Tosu nor Tokyo as both were in action only a few days ago. Expect some tired legs on the pitch and/or possibly some changes to the lineups.
