Bottom half versus upper half as Ventforent kofu takes on league leader Omyia Ardija.
Kofu started off surprisingly well at the start of the season, but as a newcomer they have started to slow off with only 1-2-2 in their last five games. They were totally smashed against Hiroshima in their last match with 5-1 away from home. Because of the current bad period, Kofu have a total 3-5-4 after their 12 games so far this season. Ventforet Kofu have 2-0-3 at home this season and 6-7 in goal difference.
Omiya Ardija have been veru solid so far this season with 9-2-1 in their 12 first games this season. Their only loss came two weaks ago against Vegalta Sendai, which was Omiya's first loss for 22 games. However, Omiya was back on the winning track with 2-1 against Shonan Bellmare, but it should have been more. Omyia did not take care of their enormous chances that they produced, and it often looked like a constant powerplay inside Shonan Bellmare's half.
Omyia have actually been almost just as good both home and away. They have 5-0-1 from their six games away from home and 11-3 in goal difference. Two of the three goals that they have let in came against the lose against Vegalta Sendai. That shows what a good defensive line Omiya also posesses.
Omyia have the most victories in the meeting over the history agianst Ventforet Kofu with 6-3-4 in 13 previous meetings. Omiya get Tomiyama (10/3) back after a head injury which is very good news for the away side. They have no other injuries. Ventforet Kofu are missing defenders Tsuda and Mizuno, but they not play often. Matsuhashi (12 games) got a red card in the last match and will be suspended in this game.
Omyia should be able to grab another victory here aginst a Ventforet Kofu that is struggling more now. Omiya have been strong all season and with no injuries, this should be possible. I choose Omiya Ardija with AH in this match.
