Sanfrecce Hiroshima, who finished 3rd in the 1st stage, recorded a 4-3 win at Vegalta Sendai last Saturday. Hisato Sato is in top form as the veteran striker netted a brace. I think he is ready to help the team challenge the 2nd stage crown. Matsumoto Yamaga extended their losing skid in all competitions to 8 matches following their 2-1 home loss to Urawa Reds last Saturday. The newly-promoted team had a quick start to the season but have been struggling after the opponents got familiar with their playing style. As debutants to the J. League, Matsumoto’s performance is not bad at all. However, their defence remains leaky as they don’t have financial muscle to bring in some top class defenders. I reckon over 2.5 goals.
