Sapporo preview: Can they end their losing streak?

Losing five games in a row have cemented Sapporo at the bottom of the J1 League standings. With 11 points from 19 games, they are firmly in the last place and already nine points behind the first team outside of the relegation zone. So, while there's a lot of football left in this season, Sapporo are on a path of no return and if things don't change drastically and soon, they'll have a tough time avoiding relegation.

Sapporo are also dealing a lot of injuries since Gun-hee Kim, Hiroki Miyazawa, Ryota Aoki, Supachok Sarachat, Yuya Asano, Shun Takagi, Kazuki Fukai and are all on the sidelines at the moment.

Predicted lineup: Sugeno (GK), Nishino, Okamura, Nakamura, Kondo, Baba, Arano, Tanaka, Komai, Suzuki & Kobayashi
