Gifu form and stats

OK but not perfect. That could be the conclusion for Gifu's two home games in the J3-League so far this season, having collected 3 points here at Nagaragawa Stadium. With three straight defeats the pressure is piling up on Gifu to get some points in this home game.

Gifu faced defeat in their previous match, away at Fujieda MYFC (3-4). A goal frenzy last time out for Gifu, with a total of 7 goals in the match against Fujieda MYFC. Fun stuff to watch! A strange day for Gifu and Fujioka last time out against Fujieda MYFC: The player scored three goals but the team still lost the match 3-4.

A defeat was the result before that one, 1-2 away at Kamatamare Sanuki.

The bookmakers consider this a fairly even contest. One could say only the home advantage separates the teams. It could be relevant to look at how Gifu have performed in matches similar to this (as small favourites). Our database has found 10 matches with the results: Won 2, drawn 5 and lost 3.

Another home game is coming up fairly shortly for the hosts, as Gainare Tottori are coming to town in three days.

Early season league goal statistics from Gifu's 2 home games: 4 goals, 3 conceded.

Sagamihara form and stats

No J3-League points yet away for Sagamihara, from their first 3 matches. A depressing four defeats in a row for Sagamihara in their away games. Unhappy days, as the last time they avoided a loss on the road was versus Ehime.

Sagamihara lost away at Fukushima United (0-1) in their previous game and are perhaps starting to feel homesick. Late heartbreak for Sagamihara in the Fukushima United match, as the deciding 0-1 goal came deep into overtime.

It was a defeat before that one as the away game against Ehime wasn't a success with a 1-2 loss.

So, this is expected to be a close game, an even contest. Looking at earlier matches with Sagamihara playing away and similar expectations, we found 9 relevant matches. Results were 2 Sagamihara wins, 4 draws and 3 defeats.

A new game in only four days for Sagamihara, the J3-League home match versus YSCC. Busy days.

There's been a serious shortage of goals from Sagamihara's away games in the league this season with only 1 goal from 3 matches. As opposed to that, Sagamihara have seen the ball go into their own net 4 times on the road.

Head 2 Head
