Urawa Reds vs Yokohama by Alexis1016
Urawa lost undeservedly in the last round against Kashiwa Reysol. Beside the fact that Urawa conceded the third goal in the last seconds of the game, was a controversial moment after the referee moved a foul from outside the box in the box and Reysol striker, Junya Tanaka scored for 2-1 from a PK. Anyway, Urawa had a immediate reaction and they leveled the scored after a corner kick. It's true that Urawa had a permissive defense against Reysol, but in the last 2 home games they keeped a clean sheet and the last one was against Kawasaki Frontale, the team with maybe the best attack in the league. Frontale had some chances to scored in that game, but to keep a clean sheet against a team like Frontale it's really a performance in the J-League. Former Koln defender, Tomoaki Makino missed the last match due a to minor injury, but he should be back in training tomorrow and has chances to start in this game. Marcio Richardes it's long term injury.
On the other hand, Yokohama F-Marinos has a poor shape and the participation in the AFC Champions League wasn't the best thing because they had to use approximately the same starting 11 in the almost all games, in the J-League and in the continental competion. F-Marinos lost in the weekend against FC Tokyo after a poor first half. In the second they improved, they had the possesion, but failed to create many big opportunities to score, just a big chance missed by experienced central defender Nakazawa.
As I said before, Urawa looks more sure in defense when they play at home, they have good potential up front thanks to Yosuke Kashiwagi, Genki Haraguchi and former Soton striker, Tadanari Lee. Urawa should win this game against a tired team like F-Marinos.
