Urawa Red Diamonds vs Machida Zelvia Predictions


Both teams are in great form, but Urawa look over-priced against the table-topping J1 League newcomers.

I'm taking a chance on Urawa to score two or more and to see off their on-form visitors. 

  • Urawa Red Diamonds scored 2+ goals in 5 of their last 6 home matches
  • Urawa Red Diamonds won 5 of their last 6 home matches
  • Machida Zelvia lost 1 of their last 3 matches

Head to Head


Sunday's J1 League clash marks the second-ever meeting between these sides. Urawa scored a dominant 7-1 victory in their only previous encounter in 2015. 

Urawa Red Diamonds Form


Urawa Red Diamonds return to Saitama following a shock 1-0 defeat against V-Varen Nagasaki in the J League Cup on Wednesday. 

Per Høgmo's side are in better form in the JL1 with four victories and only one defeat in their six most recent league contests. Urawa have been particularly impressive at the Saitama Stadium, scoring at least two goals in five victories from their last six home fixtures.  

Placed sixth in the division, the Reds sit eight points behind Machida, 15 games into the season. 

Urawa Red Diamonds Team News


Urawa head coach Høgmo has a couple of likely absentees this weekend. Injured duo Naoki Maeda and Ola Solbakken are expected to miss out for the Reds.  

Machida Zelvia Form


Machida Zelvia maintained their stunning early-season form with a superb 2-0 J League Cup win against Kashima Antlers on Wednesday. Aussie international Mitchell Duke bagged a double to secure Zelvia's safe passage into the next round. 

Go Kuroda's in-form side have won five of their last six matches, including a thumping 5-0 win against Tokyo Verdy last weekend.

Competing in the J1 League for the first time in their history, Zelvia sit top of the table, boasting an impressive haul of 32 points from 15 games played. 

Machida Zelvia Team News


Machida Zelvia boss Kuroda seems likely to retain the same XI that saw off Kashima Antlers on Wednesday. The visitors have no reported injury issues ahead of their trip to Saitama. 

Verdict

Urawa are in solid home form, and their greater levels of experience could prove crucial in Sunday's intriguing J1 League clash.

I fancy the hosts to score two or more and to claim a vital home victory.
