There's been ups and downs for these two teams so far this season, occupying positions near the middle of the J2-League table so far. Here's the Zweigen Kanazawa - Júbilo Iwata latest:

It's no vacation for neither Kanazawa nor Júbilo Iwata as both were in action only a few days ago. Expect some tired legs on the pitch and/or possibly some changes to the lineups.

Zweigen Kanazawa form and stats

Zweigen Kanazawa have collected 20 points from their J2-League home games so far after 5-5-3. The opportunity of a proper winning streak is there for the hosts, with two straight wins here at Ishikawa Seibu Ryokuchi Stadium.

A nice win for Kanazawa last time playing, versus Renofa Yamaguchi. That was also a home game and the match ended 4-2 with Lucão, K. Sugiura, Rodolfo and R. Shimazu scoring for the victors. 2-2 away at Machida Zelvia before that.

As you can tell by the result above, the goals flowed freely in the previous game and the stadium rocked. Could there be another goal fest today?

This is expected to be a close game, with Zweigen Kanazawa perhaps considered small favourites due to their home advantage. Looking back at earlier matches similar to this one (expected to be close with Zweigen Kanazawa as a small favourite), we find 14 games. Kanazawa has won six of these, drawn six and lost two.

The manager M. Yanagishita will start preparations for the next game as soon this is finished, as the hosts are going to JEF United in only three days.

Kanazawa are certainly not overdoing their scoring at home in league matches, having created 18 goals in 13 games. 15 goals have been conceded.

Júbilo Iwata form and stats

Júbilo Iwata have only collected 12 points from their away games in the J2-League, after 2-6-4 (12 played).

The Júbilo Iwata goalkeeper Naoki Hatta is collecting clean sheets like a laundry worker. It's been 180 league minutes without conceding a goal, and counting.

Impressive finishing from N. Miki secured the home win 1-0 against V-Varen Nagasaki in their previous game. A 0-0 draw at Matsumoto Yamaga's stadium before that.

So, this is expected to be a close game, an even contest. Looking at earlier matches with Júbilo playing away and similar expectations, we found seven relevant matches. Results were three Júbilo Iwata wins, one draw and three defeats.

The schedule is very tough for Júbilo now as they have to travel again shortly after this match. A J2-League game at Tokyo Verdy is waiting in only three days.

The attacking power of Júbilo when travelling is not overwhelming with 11 goals scored from 12 league matches away. It's been trouble in front of goal recently, as only 0 of these goals has been scored in their last three away matches. 15 goals have been conceded by Júbilo in these games.

Head 2 Head

These teams' last encounter with each other was the Júbilo Iwata - Zweigen Kanazawa 6-0 earlier this season. Head-to-head totals (for the last three meetings): Kanazawa won zero games, zero matches ended with a draw and Júbilo Iwata has three wins. Over 2,5 goals / under 2,5 goals: three / zero
