Yokohama FC vs Sanfrecce Hiroshima match information

Time: 13:00 (GMT+8) on February 16th

Venue: Nippatsu Mitsuzawa Stadium

Competition: 2020 J League Cup

After getting the promotion to play at J1 League in the 2020 season, the top target of Yokohama FC is to stay at the first-tier league. As a result, they may not fight with all of their strength to compete in other competitions such as J League Cup.

In the history, before playing at J1 League in the 2020 season, the only year that they competed at this tournament is the 2007 event. At that time, Yokohama FC finished at the lowest place of the league table, which made them be relegated to J2 League.

As a result, Yokohama FC does not want the same story to happen again, so they must concentrate on the J1 League instead of other tournaments.

Meanwhile, although Sanfrecce Hiroshima has neven won the J League Cup, they are always one of favorite candidates in each tournament.

As a former champion of the J1 League, Sanfrecce Hiroshima has better players compared to Yokohama FC, which helps them find it easier to win the game.

Coach Hiroshi Jofuku and his players also want to improve their performance in the 2020 J League Cup when they were eliminated at the last tournament.

Consequently, despite the fact that Yokohama has the advantage to play at the home venue Nippatsu Mitsuzawa Stadium, the chance for them to win the game is very small.

Yokohama FC: Akihiro Takeshige, Yuta Fujii, Maguinho, Calvin Jong-a-Pin, Yuki Kobayashi, Leandro Domingues, Shunsuke Nakamura, Takuya Matsuura, Kensuke Sato, Ibba Laajab, Kazunari Ichimi.
