Sanfrecce Hiroshima vs Nagoya Grampus match information

Time: 18:00 (GMT+8) on September 28th

Venue: Edion Stadium Hiroshima, Asaminami-ku, Hiroshima

Competition: 27th round of 2019 J1-League

Hiroshima's Sanfrecce of this season has not been as strong as last season. They were pretty far behind by Tokyo, Kashima or Yokohama in the championship race. In theory, Hiroshima still has a chance when there are 8 more rounds to finish the season, but the gap has reached 9 points, it is difficult to level.

However, they still have another goal is to enter the Top 3 to win tickets to the AFC Champion League next season. After the last 26 rounds, Sanfrecce Hiroshima has won 12 wins, 7 draws and 7 losses. With 43 points, they are 5 points behind the 3rd ranked team, Yokohama. In fact, this is not a big gap, and Yokohama itself is not really good.

In the last 6 matches, Sanfrecce Hiroshima lost only 1 match and got 3 wins. If you keep playing with the same style as last time, whether or not they will play in the continental arena is not to be discussed.

Nagoya Grampus on the other hand, had a completely different style compared to the home team. In the last 6 matches, they only won 1 time and had 3 defeats.

Currently, Nagoya has 31 points and ranks at 11th position in the rankings. This should be a safe position, but this season the teams compete very equally. Currently, Nagoya is only 4 points higher than the group holding the red light and has 7 more rounds. If he can't change his bad form, even the possibility of the relegation of Nagoya will be very high.
