Two teams that are playing in unusual form, while home Giravanz is going up and down, no matter on rival strength, Chiba keep up with tight games and a lot of draws which keep team as promotion candidate last couple of years.Away team won six of eleven games between two opponents. Chiba should push this part of season and use home team weak form at the moment to try get in playoff place near the finish of competition. Chiba did not lose at all competitions for almost two months. On other, their opponent failed in cup from Mito and than lost match from Gifu. Chiba should not concede at this match, because they have only two goals in the net at recent five games.Their defense could be better than 40:30 goal score, but in this part of season back line improved a lot, and did not concede even with better rival. Brazilian Paulihno should be in mid line, and Slovenian Nejc Pencnik is playing his best season in last couple of years. He played in defense or midfield for Crvena Zvezda his last year in Europa, but now as attacker he scored 11 goals as first scorer of the team.For home team there could be problem form of Maeda and Nihsijima , both 33 years and playing practically all league long, every game. They could drop physically in the finish+
