ThespaKusatsu Gunma will welcome Tochigi to Shoda Shoyu Stadium for a matchday 21 fixture in Japan J2 League. The last meeting on 25th August 2021 ended in a ThespaKusatsu Gunma 1-0 win. Both sides have met nine times in the most recent seasons. ThespaKusatsu Gunma has won 3 matches, and Tochigi triumphed in 3. Recent outings average 2.00 goals, while both teams score 22% of the time.
ThespaKusatsu Gunma’s latest fixture against Renofa Yamaguchi ended in an away 2-1 loss. I expected more from ThespaKusatsu Gunma. The lack of focus in the final third cost them three points. ThespaKusatsu Gunma was more dominant in the second half and scored in the 64 minute.
Tochigi’s recent game against V-Varen Nagasaki ended in a home 2-3 loss. Tochigi’s strikers were frustrated by the lack of good chances. Tochigi had good chances in both halves and scored in the 32nd and 75th minute.
So far, ThespaKusatsu Gunma plays better on the road than at home. They win 1.30 points per away game on average compared to 0.90 points at home. Although ThespaKusatsu Gunma 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 30% home clean sheets.
Tochigi has picked up 7 points from the previous six league games. They still have a lot to prove when playing away from home. Tochigi wins 0.89 points per away game, a bit less than their home record shows. To improve results, they have to be more compact in defence. Tochigi kept a clean sheet in just 33% of their visits.
It is hard to choose a favourite in this one. Both teams look evenly-matched and have their strengths. I am not willing to take a risk and prefer a double chance bet. My prediction is ThespaKusatsu Gunma or Draw.
Lately, there are not that many high-scoring games for both sides. I am confident that the tendency will keep going and at least one team will keep a clean sheet. A bet that both sides will score wins in an average of 37% of ThespaKusatsu Gunma’s home and Tochigi’s away games. My prediction is Both Teams to Score: No.
