Urawa Reds form and stats

When playing at home in the J-League, Urawa Reds have managed 3 wins, 3 draws and suffered 2 defeats from 8 games.

Happy days for Urawa Reds in their previous game, a J-League match away at Consadole Sapporo (placed 15th) that ended with a 4-3 victory. Before that, Urawa Reds drew at home versus Sagan Tosu.

As you can tell by the result above, the goals flowed freely in the previous game and the stadium rocked. Could there be another goal fest today? Manager T. Ōtsuki felt very clever after K. Shibato scored the winning goal against Consadole Sapporo, having brought on that player as a substitute in the 61st minute. Some amazing scenes last match, when K. Shibato scored the winning goal four minutes into stoppage time.

There's a new game coming up fairly quickly for Urawa Reds as they are travelling to their away game against Shimizu S-Pulse in the J-League. That match is three days after this one.

The Urawa fans would probably like to see some more goals scored at their own stadium in the league, the tally being 8 in 8 matches. Urawa's goalkeeper has had to pick the ball out of their own net 10 times. For more goal stats, check the Statistics tab above.
