NGY vs SAP Fantasy Preview:
Nagoya Grampus will be walking into this fixture riding on the back of consecutive victories against Urawa Reds and Cerezo Osaka. They are currently in the 5th position with 39 points from 21 games and a victory will catapult them to the third position and will also place them comfortably in the course for a second-place.
On the contrary, Consadole has stuttered badly in the tournament and finds them languishing in the 13th spot with 21 points from 22 games. However, their recent form has been highly topsy-turvy with the team savouring extremes of every feeling. In the last three games they started with a crushing 4-0 defeat against Vissel Kobe, followed it up with a thrilling 3-3 draw against Vegalta Sendai and hammered Shonan Belmare by an emphatic margin of 2-1.
A victory in this game will be crucial for both the outfits as it can launch them in respectable positions. It will be a lot more urgent for Sapporo as a victory can hurl them closer to their closest contenders. This will be our fantasy prediction for the game.

NGY vs SAP: Head to head
In the last five fixtures that have been played between Nagoya and Sapporo, the latter has relished sway with three victories and a draw while Nagoya could only manage a solitary victory. The last encounter between them fizzled out to a goalless affair and this game will be another crackerjack between these two opponents.
NGY vs SAP: Probable Teams:
Langerak (GK), Yoshida, Maruyama, Nakatani, Oh, Sona, Yonemoto, Inagaki, Dos Santos Kastro, Kanazaki, Maeda
Nakano (GK), Fukumori, Kim, Tanaka, Suga, Miyazawa, Arano, Fernandes, Kaneko, Komai, Lopes
Picks to consider:
Dos Santos is a considerable name in the hunt for great players in today’s game considering his goal-scoring instincts. He has also managed to grab a couple of goals in the recent fixtures of Nagoya.
Lopes is a talented striker and loves to finish the chances that come his way. His poaching instincts have always been top-notch and that is exactly why he will be an important pick for today’s game.
Match Prediction – Who will win today?
Nagoya Grampus will be the favourites to win this game, considering their recent form and the standings in the league. However, Sapporo won’t make this a cakewalk either.
