Jeju United vs Seongnam
The host disappointing run of form continued as they were held by Gwangju earlier in the week, although they did manage to avoid a fourth straight loss with that draw.
They are now without a win in 6 but visitors Seongnam arrive on the back four games without a victory. They too avoided a fourth successive defeat as they drew with Seoul and with both teams lacking form.
Prediction Jeju Win or Draw... Under 2.5 goals.
Consadole vs Shimizu
The host 3-match unbeaten run in Japan League 1 was ended by reigning champions Kawasaki Frontale last time out.
They will look to make an immediate response here as they host Shimizu S-Pulse and they will be confident of doing so against the out-of-form visitors.
They were on the end of a 0-3 loss to Nagoya Grampus last weekend to make it eight league games without a win and that run is unlikely to come to an end here with the hosts able to prevail.
Prediction: Consadole Win.
Wellington vs Western United
The host once again showed how difficult they are to beat as they held top of the ladder Melbourne City to a draw last time out. That is now 7 games without defeat for the side from New Zealand,
Although their last 3 have all ended in a stalemate. They will firmly believe they can extend their unbeaten run in this one, although they will be eager to claim all 3 points against a Western United side that have suffered 4 successive losses. They have failed to even score in their last 3 and with that in mind, Wellington can come out on top here but they should claim a point at the very least.
Prediction : Wellington Win.
Sogan Vs Kashima
Two in-form teams meet here as the host are unbeaten in their last 5 league games, host a Kashima Antlers side that have not lost any of their last 8 Japan League 1 outings.
The way side have in fact won their last 4 in what has been an impressive run of form but they will be tested here with the home side conceding just once in their last 3. The host have drawn their last two so they might find it difficult to collect the three points against such a strong outfit and with Visitors looking so consistent, the away side should claim at least a point from this trip.
Prediction : Kashima or Draw: Undrr 2.5 Goals.
