Livescore | Match Prediction & Tips| Asian Handicap Odds|Line-ups& H2H Stats



Andres Iniesta was at the away game last weekend but did not take part a he was considered not fit enough. Lukas Podolski was also missing from the squad and he should be considered doubtful for the next game, too. Full backs So Fujitani and Ryo Hatsuse are also still out, while we await news on the injury to Kyogo Furihashi that kept him out of last week's game. Adding to their selection problems Vissel are without Yuta Goke and Yuki Kobayashi who are with the Japan Under-20 squad.


For Bellmare Yuki Ohashi has had knee surgery and will miss the rest of the season.



Suspended: None

Doubtful: Kyogo Furuhashi, Lukas Podolski

Injured/Unavailable: So Fujitani (hamstring), Ryo Hatsuse (back fracture), Yuta Goke (Japan Under-20), Yuki Kobayashi (Japan Under-20).



Suspended: None

Doubtful: None

Injured/Unavailable: Yuki Ohashi (knee), Daiki Kaneko (dislocated pelvis), Mitsuki Saito (Japan Under-20), Toichi Suzuki (Japan Under-20).



Vissel had a bad J1 weekend last week going down 4-1 to Yokohama F.Marinos despite close to matching their hosts in shots and corners. Vissel simply lacked finishing and accuracy. With so many injuries, and not a little politics going on inside the club a losing habit has developed. This weekend will see Vissel trying to snap a seven-game losing streak in the league and they will be doing it against a team that anyone watching will have been rooting for last weekend, after Bellmare had an obvious goal not allowed. Suddenly everyone was supporting Bellmare for at least one game. There is not a lot that you can say about Vissel except that they have some great players but are not at all a team. If Kyogo Furuhashi is out that is their bright spark – a player able to make a run that changes a game – gone. A very changed Vissel team showed some fight on Wednesday night in League Cup play but eventually went down 3-1 at home to Nagoya Grampus and crashed out of the Cup.


Bellmare were 2-0 down at half time at Urawa Reds in J1 last weekend before two goals from Shunsuke Kikuchi pulled them level with just over 10 minutes to go. Miki Yamane then won the game for them with the last kick of the contest. 3-2 final score and an amazing comeback by Bellmare. They may have less-skilled players than Vissel but they have an excellent manager who makes a good team from lesser players. Bellmare will be confident and come out thinking they can win – especially with the fact that their last three league wins have all been away from home! Bellmare went 2-0 down at home to Hokkaido Consadole Sapporo on Wednesday night in League Cup play before coming back to draw 2-2.


I believe that Vissel will know that this could be the last chance for manager Takayuki Yoshida and will give their all for him, but I am not sure they are ready to actually win a game yet!! I'll give them a draw!



Despite all their attacking talent, it is at the back that Vissel need to improve. If they can stop the goals going in they have a chance of getting a point, or more, and I feel that they may well be concentrating on the back line. A 0-0 or a 1-1 at most here, I feel as Vissel shut up shop.



In J1 matches between these two teams last season each team won their away game.
