Vissel Kobe vs Matsumoto Yamaga match information

Time: 18:00 (GMT+8) on September 14th

Venue: Noevir Stadium Kobe, Hyōgo-ku, Kōbe, Hyōgo

Competition: 26th round of J-League 2019

Vissel Kobe with many star players can absolutely impose the game and win against a weak Yamaga.

We know the Vissel Kobe with many famous players like David Villa, Andres Iniesta, Lukas Poldoski or most recently Vermaelen. Obviously having such a "great squad", Kobe's position must be very high, even top of the table.

However, at present, after 25 rounds, Vissel Kobe has only won 8 victories, 5 draws and 12 losses. That achievement only helped them to rank 12th in the rankings and certainly no chance to win tickets to the AFC Champion League.

To be fair, it is impossible to blame these famous players. They are all too old and all go to Japan just to play less competitive football in the rest of their career. Therefore, Kobe needs to invest more in the squad strength.

On the other side, Matsumoto Yamaga is not a team that is known too much. In fact, they also struggled to find their own place when currently Yamaga is only standing in 2nd place from the bottom.

Yamaga is 3 points behind Sagan Tosu and 4 points behind the safety position. The opportunity for Yamaga to remain in the J-League is available, but they need to play harder.
