FC Tokyo preview: Hoping to come closer to the top

After four games without a win in the league, FC Tokyo finally ended this poor run with a win over Sagan Tosu in the last round and they now sit in sixth place in the J1 League standings. With 26 points from 17 games, they are nine points behind the top of the table, so they can't afford another poor run if they want to stay in the race for the title or at least one of the AFC Champions League places.

Predicted lineup: Nozawa (GK), Anzai, Kimoto, Trevisan, Bangnagande, Ko, Koizumi, Matsuki, Nakagawa, Bangnagande & Araki
