Matsumoto Yamaga form and stats

Matsumoto Yamaga have only collected 6 points from their away games in the J2-League, after 1-3-4 (8 played). It's a growing despair in Matsumoto as they have recorded three consecutive losses.

Matsumoto Yamaga had fun at their own home (transcosmos Stadium Nagasaki) last time out, beating Ryūkyū 1-0.

A 1-5 loss hosting Machida Zelvia before that.

As mentioned above, the odds for this match puts the home team as favourites. Perhaps this eases the pressure on the away team, who are capable of producing an upset here on a good day. Looking at earlier matches with similar odds and Matsumoto Yamaga playing away, we found seven games. Results were one away win, one draw and five home wins.

There's been a serious shortage of goals from Matsumoto's away games in the league this season with only 4 goals from 8 matches. It's worth mentioning that 2 of these goals has been scored in their last three away matches. Matsumoto struggle to build an impenetrable defensive wall in away matches with a total of 14 goals conceded from these games.
