Yokohama FM preview: Still struggling to find their form

With four losses in their last six games, Yokohama FM's struggles in the J1 League continue and that's really surprising since this team has reached the AFC Champions League final earlier this season. However, in the league they're in the lower half of the standings with just 26 points from 20 games.

Meanwhile, Tae-Hee Nam, Taiki Watanabe, and Katsuya Nagato are all out with injuries at the moment.

Predicted lineup: Popp (GK), Matsubara, Kamijima, Eduardo, Kato, Amano, Kida, Watanabe, Matheus, Lopes & Miyaichi

Sagan Tosu preview: On the road to relegation

Two straight wins over Jubilo and Kawasaki earlier in May have given Sagan Tosu fans hope that they could see their team climb out of the relegation zone. However, Sagan Tosu have lost five of their next six matches and right now they remain one of the main candidates for relegation, currently six points behind the first team outside of the relegation zone.

When it comes to team news, Yoshiki Narahara, Fuchi Honda, and Masahiro Okamoto are on Sagan Tosu's injury list ahead of this game.

Predicted lineup: Park (GK), Maruhashi, Ueebisu, Taehyeon, Naganuma, Tezuka, Kawahara, Yokoyama, Kikichi, Togashi & Ryan

Player to watch: Anderson Lopes

With 12 goals in the league this season, the Brazilian forward is one of the top scorers in the league and he's one of a just few bright spots in this Yokohama's season, at least when it comes to the J1 League.

Anderson Lopes to be the first goalscorer?

Half of the 12 goals that Lopes has to his name in the league this season were the first goal of the respective matches. Can he repeat this against Tokyo Verdy too?
