Johor Darul Takzim will host Nagoya Grampus in the first round of the Asian Champions League group stage. We analyze the form of the teams and give a forecast.
"Johor Darul Takzim"
"Johor Darul Takzim" gave a number of confident matches in the Malaysian championship, scored a total of 30 points and topped the standings. In thirteen matches, Johor Darul Takzim suffered only one defeat, succeeding in terms of victories - nine. Two of them were obtained in two extreme rounds, in which Kedah (1-0) and Penang (3-0) were defeated in turn.
Despite the fact that in the Japanese J-1 League, Nagoya will have to hold 18 more matches, it is unlikely that it can seriously count on the first place, since it is already 18 points behind it. Moreover, even the current second line can get away from under your nose, because it is claimed by Yokohama ,which is three points behind and has four matches in reserve. Recently, "Nagoya Grampus" performs very modestly, having achieved only one victory in six matches in the championship.
Statistics and figures:
- "Johor Darul Takzim" does not lose for three matches;
- Nagoya Grampus have won one of their last six league games.;
- Previously, "Johor Darul Takzim" and "Nagoya Grampus" did not intersect.
I propose to bet on the victory of the hosts, who are gradually gaining momentum and increasing not only the winless series, but also the winning one. The visitors look modest - they score little and, as a result, rarely win.
