Hiroshima vs Yokohama: Should we expect a defeat?
Hiroshima - Yokohama. Prediction for the Japanese Championship match (July 11, 2021)
Within the framework of the 22nd round of the Japanese J-1 League, the meeting between "Hiroshima" and "Yokohama" will take place at the Edion stadium on July 11. Will the middle peasant cope with the team confidently taking the last place? Read about it in our forecast.
"Hiroshima" has not lost in the championship for a long time, the last time Hiroshi Jofuku's charges did not cope with "Tokushima" (0:1). But misfires were observed in other tournaments: they lost to "Vegalta Sendai" (0:3) in the League Cup, and they flew out of the Japan Cup in disgrace in mid-July, having suffered a crushing defeat from the modest "Okosiya" from Kyoto with a score of 1:5.
But in the championship, nine points were scored in the last five rounds. During this period, the current hosts defeated "Cerezo" from "Osaka" (2:1) and "Kashiva" (1:0), and also tied with "Urava" (2:2), "Tokyo" (0: 0) and "Sagan" (1:1). Will the successful streak last?
Upcoming Predictions for Football
It seems that "Yokohama" has already come to terms with the fact that next year it will be in the division below the rank. Actually, the team under the leadership of Tomonobu Hayakawa could already be there, but last season no one went to take off due to the pandemic.
Actually, there can be no other way, when you have not won since May 15, and behind your shoulders is a train of nine meetings without victories. During all this time, the team managed to earn two points due to draws with "Fukuoka" and "Shimizu" (both - 1:1). Moreover, with the latter, it was possible to achieve success at all, but the players were unable to maintain a fragile advantage in the end of the match. Nevertheless, the really shameful game, starting from the middle of May, was only against "Kobe", when it was not worth going out on the field - 0:5.
Of course, the home team is not in danger of relegation at the end of the season, but it is unlikely to be able to claim anything serious either. Nevertheless, while the gap from the third place is not so critical and amounts to seven points, which means that the struggle for higher positions must be continued. If the players enter the field with maximum dedication, then there will be no problems with achieving the desired result.
Our prediction is that "Hiroshima" will win with a handicap (-1) with the odds of 1.74 on 1xbet.
