Albirex Niigata vs Ehime – J League: The 5th round of the J-League 2 takes place this morning and in one of the matches, Albirex Niigata faces Ehime.
Albirex Niigata was relegated this season to the J-League 2 after 1 season on the top tier of Japanese football. Of last year’s core, they have kept some players that may be important for the team to make a good campaign.
On the other side we will have Ehime that started the season in the worst possible fashion, since they couldn’t get any points,
which might mean it will be hard for them to repeat the record they’ve accomplished last season where they finished in 15th place with 51 points conquered.
Albirex Niigata is on the top spots after these 4 rounds, and after 4 matches, they have 8 points conquered, thanks to 2 wins and 2 draws,
with the team curiously winning both matches played away from home but getting 2 draws at home against Matsumoto Yamaga and Kyoto Sanga. On the last round, Albirex Niigata won comfortably against Yokohama FC by 3 unanswered goals.
This is the chance for Albirex Niigata to make their winning debut in front of their fans, with the team proving they have a word to say on the fight for promotion in the last round.
Ehime started off this league terribly and in 4 rounds, they’ve gotten 4 losses.
This team from the city of Matsuyama is trying to obtain their first points against a complicated Albirex Niigata, trying to start off their campaign to avoid relegation in this league.
Ehime has the worst attack of the competition so far, with only 2 goals scored against the 8 goals already conceded. This team is coming off a loss at home against Kunamoto by 2-1.
Albirex Niigata vs Ehime – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Playing at home, Albirex Niigata still hasn’t won but tomorrow they will have a good chance since they are facing a team that is in serious difficulties to get points on this start of the season.
I believe that Albirex will win for the first time at home on this 5th round.
