Player to watch: Sho Fukuda

Sho Fukuda has been one of the most in-form player in the J League at the moment. He has had a really good campaign, scoring six times in six starts. Interestingly, Fukuda was on the scoresheet in six of his last seven matches across all competitions. He has scored in back-to-back games, and will look to increase his scoring streak to three matches.
