Kyoto Sanga preview: Hoping for an important win in the relegation battle

Just like their next opponent Shonan Bellmare, Kyoto Sanga are also in the relegation zone, one point behind at the moment. So, they really need to avoid a loss in this match or they risk falling further behind, which would raise the risk of relegation.

Kyo Sato picked up a knock in Kyoto Sanga's 2-0 victory over Consadole Sapporo last weekend. He faces a late fitness test ahead of this clash.

Predicted lineup: Gu (GK), Fukuda, Miyamoto, Suzuki, Toichi, Kaneko, Kawasaki, Matsuda, Toyokawa, Hirato & Hara

Can Lukian score more than once?

We saw Lukian score multiple goals in a match twice already in the J1 League this season. Will we see it again against Kyoto Sanga?
