Ventforet Kofu will welcome Albirex Niigata to JIT Recycle Ink Stadium for a matchday 17 fixture in Japan J2 League. The last meeting on 26th September 2020 ended in a 1-1 draw. Both sides have met seventeen times in the most recent seasons. Ventforet Kofu has won 5 matches, and Albirex Niigata triumphed in 2. Recent outings average 2.12 goals, while both teams score 47% of the time.
Ventforet Kofu's latest fixture against Kyoto Sanga ended in an away 0-0 draw. They were not spectacular, so this result seems fair.
Albirex Niigata's recent game against Ryūkyū ended in a home 2-1 win. Albirex Niigata [JPN] dominated the game and deserved the win. Albirex Niigata had good chances in both halves and scored in the 29th and 67th minute.
Since the start of the season, Ventforet Kofu is more dominant at home. They have five wins out of 9 games on home soil. Ventforet's good defensive display is key to their success. They didn't concede in 44% of home games.
Albirex Niigata has picked up 7 points from the previous six league games. They still have a lot to prove when playing away from home. Albirex Niigata wins 2.10 points per away game, a bit less than their home record shows. To improve results, they have to be more compact in defence. Albirex Niigata kept a clean sheet in just 30% 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 Ventforet Kofu or Draw.
