Sanfrecce Hiroshima vs Vissel Kobe match information

Time: 15:00 (GMT+8) on October 5th

Venue: Edion Stadium Hiroshima, Asaminami-ku, Hiroshima

‎‎Competition: 28th round of 2019 J-League 1

Sanfrecce Hiroshima's ambitions to compete for championships are fading, as they are going through a really poor playing phase in every arena they attend. First, it was a loss to the Consadole Sapporo in the Japan League Cup and then to the defeat of the weaker team, Oita Trinita, on the 11m mark in the Emperor's Cup. Previously, Sanfrecce Hiroshima was also eliminated by compatriot Kashima Antlers in the AFC Champions League.

The last front that Sanfrecce Hiroshima still has competitive hope is that the J-League is also gradually out of reach. Winning only the last 1/4 matches made the home players fall to 6th place on the table with 44 points. The current gap from the top team has now been raised to 9 points and the season has only 7 rounds to close the curtain.

Sanfrecce Hiroshima needs a victory in the afternoon to win hopes to get into the top 3 - the group will be in the preliminary round of the AFC Champions League next season. Up to before the 28th round, the Hiroshima team has 12 wins, 8 draws and 7 wins, currently ranked 6th in the rankings and 3 points behind the 3rd ranked team Yokohama.

Returning to the match this afternoon, Sanfrecce Hiroshima is considered by experts to be better than rival Vissel Kobe when they are playing at EDION's home field. But if you carefully analyze the actual performance of both, Sanfrecce Hiroshima is the one who must worry and the ability for them to "drop points" in this match is very large.

Remember, Sanfrecce Hiroshima has just gone through 5 consecutive matches without being aware of the victory in every participating arena. Looking at the above statistics, it can be affirmed that Sanfrecce Hiroshima is not a point that can only be trusted by investors.

On the other side of the line, Vissel Kobe showed a completely opposite face. Since August, Iniesta and his teammates won 6, drew 2 and lost only 1 match out of 9 matches played in all competitions.

Possible Lineups Sanfrecce Hiroshima vs Vissel Kobe:
