Nagoya vs FC Tokyo
Match date: Wednesday, 6 October 2021
Football – Japan Nabisco Cup
Nagoya Grampus and FC Tokyo will meet in this Japanese League Cup match. Both teams enter this match after a 1-0 defeat. Nagoya lost to Hiroshima while Tokyo lost to super strong Kawasaki. This is the first leg of the semifinals and the host will want to win, to have at least a little easier match in return leg. I think that’s exactly what they will do.
FC Tokyo is totally out of shape. They have only one win in their last five games. Nagoya is playing a bit better and they have three wins and a draw in the last five matches. That draw was played against Tokyo in an away match. Nagoya trashes everyone at home ground. In the last fifteen matches, this team has 13 wins and only one draw.
I think this is the right opportunity to win and forget that defeat by Hiroshima in the last round. Tokyo has a lot of injury problems also.
