Expert Betting Tips
Yokohama has lost only 3 matches in the current championship and has excellent meeting statistics against Sagan Tosu. Although Sagan has lost only 5 matches out of 20 in this championship. So, the Marinos will have a tough time on the road. But they are likely to win anyway, because Tosu played their Cup game in the middle of the week and will simply be less physically prepared than their opponent.
