Yokohama F Marinos preview: Hoping to end their poor run

With one win in the last nine rounds of the J1 League, Yokohama FM have clearly struggled this season. The finalists of the AFC Champions League clearly weren't built to fight well on multiple fronts and they have paid the price with their performances in the league. At the moment, they are 13th in the standings and just five points ahead of the relegation zone.

At least Yokohama F Marinos have a clean bill of health ahead of this game.

Predicted lineup: Iikura (GK), Kato, Kamijima, Matsubara, Nagato, Kida, Amano, Watanabe, Yan, Lopes & Inoue

Sanfrecce Hiroshima preview: On a good run and hoping for more

With five wins in a row in all competitions and seven wins in their last eight games across the board, Sanfrecce Hiroshima have been in great form recently. They remain fifth in the J1 League standings and nine points behind league leaders Machida Zelvia, but they also have a game in hand, so a win over Yokohama FM would put them closer to the very top of the table.

When it comes to team news, Taichi Yamasaki remains out with an injury.

Predicted lineup: Osako (GK), Sasaki, Nakano, Shiotani, Higashi, Kawamura, Matsumoto, Arai, Kato, Ohashi & Sotiriou

Player to watch: Yuki Ohashi

The experienced striker is Hiroshima's top scorer in the league this season with seven goals to his name and Yokohama will have to keep a close eye on Ohashi if they want to get a good result.

Will Ohashi be the first goalscorer?

Given that five of the seven Ohashi's goals in the J1 League this season were the first goal of the match, we might see that happen again in his team's upcoming duel with Yokohama FM.
