With their 13 point advantage in the league table, Montedio Yamagata fans are hoping to see their team collect maximum points from this game against Ehime.

It’s busy days for these teams as both were in action only a few days ago. There’s no rest for the wicked, or in this case; no rest for Montedio and Ehime.

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

A new game in only three days for Ehime, the J2-League home match versus V-Varen Nagasaki. Busy days.
