With their 15 point advantage in the league table, Kyoto Sanga fans are hoping to see their team collect maximum points from this game against Renofa Yamaguchi.
There’s little time for restitution or working hard at the training pitch these days, with both teams having played their last game less than four days ago.
Kyoto Sanga form and stats
Kyoto Sanga are steadily winning J2-League games and points here. 7 wins, 2 draws and 2 defeats is the summary from 11 games. Two defeats in a row at home hurts for Kyoto, their manager N. Saneyoshi and the supporters. There are certain expectations for improvement.
In their previous game, the manager N. Saneyoshi led his Kyoto to a defeat in the J2-League match away at Machida Zelvia. The manager is hoping to put things right immediately here. Before that game, the home loss against Albirex Niigata with the scoreline 1-2.
The match schedule is unforgiving for Kyoto as they have a new game in only three days, a J2-League match thankfully also at home. Giravanz Kitakyushu are visiting.
The Kyoto fans have had their share of opportunities to cheer home goals this season, having seen 20 goals in 11 league matches. On the other hand, Kyoto have conceded 13 goals. It's worth mentioning that 8 of these goals has been conceded in their last 3 home matches.
Renofa Yamaguchi form and stats
There's been little loot from Renofa Yamaguchi's travels as they have only collected 7 points from 14 away games in the J2-League. Renofa Yamaguchi, who have the most conceded goals (47) in J2-League, only have 1 win to counter their 9 defeats and 4 draws. Yamaguchi seem to be suffering from homesickness with two consecutive losses away. Third time lucky?
Two away games in a row for Yamaguchi, who will hope to get a better result in this one after losing 2-4 versus Zweigen Kanazawa in the J2-League. It was a defeat before that one as the away game against V-Varen Nagasaki wasn't a success with a 3-4 loss.
As you can tell from the result, the match against Zweigen Kanazawa was as crazy as a clown in a village circus. Great fun for the neutral supporter with 6 goals, will the fun continue today?
After this away game Yamaguchi return home for a J2-League game against Tokushima Vortis. That game is only three sleeps after this.
Scoring goals is the main ingredient in creating success in football, and not only at home. So far Yamaguchi have scored 15 goals in 14 league games away. The Yamaguchi manager M. Shimoda has some worries about the defense as 30 goals have been conceded in these travels.
Head 2 HeadThe most recent history between these sides is the Renofa Yamaguchi - Kyoto 1-0 played earlier this season. As for the last nine games between these two teams, there's three Kyoto victories, two draws and four Renofa Yamaguchi wins. Over/under statistics; four of these games ended with three goals or more, five matches with two goals or less.
