Omiya Ardija form and stats

Omiya Ardija have played 5 J2-League games at their own stadium so far this season, resulting in 1-0-4 (wins-draws-losses). Ardija are very eager to stop a potential losing streak at NACK5 Stadium Ōmiya, having lost their two previous games here.

Preceding that match was a defeat to Machida Zelvia (0-1).

The manager K. Iwase will start preparations for the next game as soon this is finished, as the hosts are going to ThespaKusatsu Gunma in only four days.

The Ardija fans would probably like to see some more goals scored at their own stadium in the league, the tally being 5 in 5 matches. 6 goals have been conceded.
