JEF United form and stats

With {1 J2-League wins}, 4 draws and 3 defeats from their home games, JEF United are certainly not brimming with confidence. Their last two home games have resulted in two points, meaning they were both draws.

The JEF United supporters enjoyed the previous match, watching their team host Omiya Ardija in Emperor Cup and win 1-0.

Before that, JEF United drew at home versus Montedio Yamagata.

This is expected to be a close game, with JEF United perhaps considered small favourites due to their home advantage. Looking back at earlier matches similar to this one (expected to be close with JEF United as a small favourite), we find twelve games. JEF has won five of these, drawn three and lost four.

JEF United are certainly not overdoing their scoring at home in league matches, having created 8 goals in 8 games. It's worth mentioning that 6 of these goals has been scored in their last three home matches. JEF United have conceded 10 in these home matches.

Tokyo Verdy form and stats

Tokyo Verdy have only collected 5 points from their away games in the J2-League, after 1-2-3 (6 played).

It's the second away game in a row for Tokyo, but there's smiles all around after the 1-0 victory versus Fagiano Okayama (placed 16th) in the J2-League last time out. H. Ide came off the bench to score the winning goal in the match against Fagiano Okayama last time out, making the manager H. Nagai feel like a tactical genius. Late drama in the previous game, when H. Ide scored the winning goal two minutes into stoppage time to defeat Fagiano Okayama.

Prior to that match, a home win 3-1 against Blaublitz Akita.

As mentioned above, this is an open game with no clear favourite. We have found eleven similar matches played by Tokyo in our archives, and the results are: three wins for Tokyo Verdy, five draws and three defeats.

The visitors are returning home after this fixture, hosting Fagiano Okayama in just three days.

Many goals are not expected from the visiting Tokyo as they have only managed to score 4 times from 6 away games in the league. It's worth mentioning that 2 of these goals has been scored in their last three away matches. The Tokyo Verdy manager H. Nagai has some worries about the defense as 14 goals have been conceded in these travels.

Head 2 Head

H2H stats regardless of arena (last ten matches): JEF United one win, five draws and Tokyo Verdy four victories. As for goals, five matches ended with three or more goals (over 2,5), five games had two or less.
