Yamaga - Ehime

Asian Handicap
Pick: Yamaga -0.5
Odds: 2.32
Stake: 1

Match date: 22/08/2021

Ehime comes after playing well previous round when faced Giravanz at home, but it was more about their opponent not being in a good moment than Ehime having a really good game. Otherwise, Ehime remains a team who battles to avoid the relegation like almost every year and this season is similar. This summer Ehime has signed defender Naoki Kuriyama (Montedio Yamagata), full-back Toshiya Takagi (Matsumoto Yamaga, is not going to be available today due to contract terms) and Kaisei Ishii (Sagan Tosu), all on loan. They are players with quality, but Kuriyama comes after a long-term injury, while Ishii is still a rookie. 

Matsumoto Yamaga are clearly improved since Nanami took over and this was well seen in the last J2 game when defeated Akita away from home. The team is showing another face and the defense looks more stable now compared to the first part of the season. In the meantime it was a midweek game this week in the Emperor's. Nanami gave chances to players who didn't play too much this year, but even so managed to put problems to J1 side Gamba and the game went to extra-time. Apart from this, that match saw the return to the pitch to some key players like Yuya Hashiuchi and Kazuma Yamaguchi. Also, the Brazilian Serginho played his first minutes after returning to the club. He had a short and unsuccessful period in South Korea, at Daegu, but was a key player for Yamaga in the past.

Yamaga doesn't have a very good home record this season (4-4-4), but in the past they used to be one of the best home team in J2. This record should change in the second part of the season having in mind the changes that occured at the club in the recent period.
