FC Tokyo - Cerezo Osaka

Asian Handicap
Pick: FC Tokyo - 0.25
Odds: 1.94
Stake: 1

Match date: 06/03/2021

FC Tokyo were far from being impressive in the opening round of the season against an Urawa side who weren't in their full strength, but as coach Kenta Hasegawa stated the Brazilian players didn't show their true potential as joined the training camp later than the other players. Because of this, they were rested in the League Cup game against Tokushima Vortis (1-0) as well as the other key players. Maybe a week later the likes of Arthur Silva, Diego Oliveira and Leandro will play better.

On the other hand, Cerezo Osaka were not able to rest the starters as FC Tokyo did because they played a league game against the defending champion Kawasaki Frontale and put the best 11. To my surprise they were good in this start of the season, but I still think they will be affected after several key players departed this winter, especially the leader of the defense Matej Jonjic, who signed for a Chinese team. His replacement Tiago is not available yet because of the country restrictions as well as Aussie forward Adam Taggart.

I think FC Tokyo will show a better level than in the previous round because they are going to face an opponent who have an young and inexperienced defense especially the centre backs. Remains to be seen if  Cerezo veteran striker Okubo will continue his good run of form, but this time he should have a tougher opposition as FC Tokyo are solid at the back.

    Alexis, first welcome to the site

    Secondly, seeing as you think Osaka are poor in defence, do you think Tokyo Over 1.5 goals could be a good bet? Or not sharp enough yet?
