Albirex Niigata will welcome Ryūkyū to Denka Big Swan Stadium for a matchday 16 fixture in Japan J2 League. The last meeting on 30th September 2020 ended in an Albirex Niigata 1-0 win. Both sides have met four times in the most recent seasons. Albirex Niigata has won 3 matches, and Ryūkyū triumphed in 1. Recent outings average 2.25 goals, while both teams score 25% of the time.
Albirex Niigata's last game in the Japan J2 League against Kyoto Sanga at home ended in a 0-1 loss. Albirex Niigata [JPN] had plenty of possession, but not enough quality in the final third of the pitch.
Ryūkyū's recent game against Montedio Yamagata ended in a home 0-2 loss. Ryūkyū had plenty of possession, but not so much in the final third of the pitch.
Since the start of the season, Albirex Niigata is more dominant at home. They have six wins out of 9 games on home soil. Albirex Niigata [JPN]'s good defensive display is key to their success. They didn't concede in 56% of home games.
Ryūkyū has picked up 7 points from the previous six league games. They still have a lot to prove when playing away from home. Ryūkyū wins 1.56 points per away game, a bit less than their home record shows. To improve results, they have to be more compact in defence. Ryūkyū kept a clean sheet in just 22% of their visits.
It is hard to choose a favourite in this one. Both teams look evenly-matched and have their strengths. I am not willing to take a risk and prefer a double chance bet. My prediction is Albirex Niigata or Draw.
