Ryūkyū will welcome V-Varen Nagasaki to Tapic Kenso Hiyagon Stadium for a matchday 21 fixture in Japan J2 League. The last meeting on 4th September 2021 ended in a V-Varen Nagasaki 3-1 win. Both sides have met six times in the most recent seasons. Ryūkyū has won 3 matches, and V-Varen Nagasaki triumphed in 2. Recent outings average 3.50 goals, while both teams score 83% of the time.
Ryūkyū’s latest fixture against Montedio Yamagata ended in an away 4-0 loss. Ryūkyū dominated the possession of the ball but didn’t take advantage of it.
V-Varen Nagasaki’s previous game in the competition versus Tochigi ended in an away 3-2 win. V-Varen Nagasaki was comfortable on the ball for most of the game and constantly avoided the press. V-Varen Nagasaki was pretty good in both halves and scored in the 48th, 70th and 90+1 minute.
So far, Ryūkyū plays better on the road than at home. They win 0.78 points per away game on average compared to 0.73 points at home. Although Ryūkyū is among the most solid home teams in the league, they are far from perfect. Their defence is not as good as expected with just 9% home clean sheets.
V-Varen Nagasaki has picked up 8 points from the previous six league games. It is quite intriguing that they prefer playing on the road. V-Varen Nagasaki has collected 1.60 points on average per away game, compared to 1.20 at home. To improve results, they have to be more compact in defence. V-Varen Nagasaki kept a clean sheet in just 30% of their visits.
The hosts will have to work hard to get a good result. Ryūkyū has won just 9% of home games. On average they score 1.36 goals and concede 1.91 per game. V-Varen Nagasaki won their previous away game and I expect more of the same. Their away record looks impressive.
The visitors have a better record and I have to back them. Ryūkyū wins on average 0.73 points per home game. I am not sure they have what it takes to compete against V-Varen Nagasaki. My prediction is V-Varen Nagasaki to win.
