FC Tokushima Celesta
This club plays in the fifth strongest division of Japanese football. This season, Tokushima has played six matches in the tournament and won five victories. She scored 16 points and with this result placed on the first line in the table. At the same time, Tokushima has a remarkable difference in goals scored and conceded (+23). In the first round of the Japan Cup, she coped with the team "SRK Hiroshima" — 3:1.
Statistics and figures:
- Hiroshima is the favorite of the match according to the bookmakers.
- In the last six matches, Hiroshima has suffered four defeats.
- Previously, the teams had not met with each other.
I think one of the leaders of the J-League will not have any problems in the Japan Cup match. I'll bet on a relatively confident victory for the home team. I doubt that the fifth division club will put up a decent resistance.
