Sagan Tosu ended their 6-match winless skid with a 3-1 victory over Montedio Yamagata last Sunday. Lead striker Yohei Toyoda, who came of the bench as a sub, is getting closer to full fitness. I reckon the powerhouse will be ready to shine this weekend.
Toyoda just missed the chance of playing in the East Asian Cup earlier this month due to injury. I believe he will work his tail off to earn a recall to the Japan national team.
Yokohama F.Marinos recorded a surprising 2-0 home win over Ventforet Kofu last Sunday as forward Manabu Sato is in good form. Yet, their defence remains shaky. They have recorded 2 clean sheet only in the 2nd stage.
I reckon Sagan Tosu can win this match.
