Insights:
  • JEF United have played more matches over 2,5 goals home than away.
  • Kyoto Sanga have the fewest conceded goals (31) in J2-League

There should be plenty of energy on the pitch in this game, as both sides have had time to recuperate from their last game. Let's hope both teams are ready to give it all.

JEF are staying put; they can neither be promoted or relegated this season and are fighting only for positions. Kyoto are still fighting for the big positions at the top of the table.
