Cerezo Osaka vs Matsumoto Yamaga match information

Time: 14:00 (GMT+8) on February 16th

Venue: Nagai Stadium

Competition: 2020 J League Cup

As one of the best teams in the J1 League, Cerezo Osaka has all the conditions to beat Matsumoto Yamaga in the first match of the 2020 J League Cup.

After a disappointing 2019 season, Matsumoto Yamaga was relegated to J2 League, as a result, their top target is to fight for returning the top tier league as soon as possible.

In other words, competing in the J League Cup is not the first goal for Matsumoto Yamaga, which makes them lack the motivation to play against the other teams.

In Group B of the 2020 J League Cup, Cerezo Osaka also competes against Urawa Reds and Vegalta Sendai, so they have to play with all of their strength to advance to the play-off round.

The experience in the J League Cup is another advantage of Cerezo Osaka compared to Matsumoto Yamaga because they won that competition in the 2017 season.

Meanwhile, their opponent hardly has the chance to compete in that tournament. Moreover, they also have the benefit to play at the home venue Nagai Stadium.

It will be a great chance for Cerezo Osaka attackers to show the level of a top team because a victory for them is something that can be predicted.

Cerezo Osaka vs Matsumoto Yamaga potential lineups:

Cerezo Osaka: Kim Jin Hyeon, Matej Jonjic, Riku Matsuda, Kota Fujimoto, Yusuke Maruhashi, Leandro Desabato, Souza, Bruno Mendes, Kota Mizunuma, Hiroshi Kiyotake, Pierce Waring.

Matsumoto Yamaga: Tatsuya Morita, Eduardo, Nobuhisa Urata, Hayuma Tanaka, Masaki Iida, Serginho, Paulinho, Ibuki Fujita, Keiya Nakami, Hiroyuki Takasaki, Isma.

Cerezo Osaka vs Matsumoto Yamaga score predictions: 3-0
