  • Competition: YBC Levain Cup
  • Date: Wednesday, 21st, September 2022
  • Kickoff: 11:00 UK/12.00 CET
  • Venue: Yodoko Sakura Stadium (Osaka)

The semi-final matches of the Japanese YBC Levain Cup are scheduled for Wednesday, and one of those will be played at the Yodoko Sakura Stadium, where Cerezo Osaka and Urava Reds will meet. Cerezo Osaka made a sensation in the quarter-finals, when they cancelled Kawasaki's two-goal lead and drew 2-2 in the end, with goals in the 90th and 96th minutes. Thanks to the "away goal" rule, Cerezo secured the semi-finals. Meanwhile, Urawa Reds used the advantage of the home field in the best possible way, demolishing Nagoya in the second leg 3-0 - 4-1 on aggregate

Cerezo Osaka vs Urawa Reds Betting Tips: Under 2.5

Cerezo Osaka have proved to be the better team in the last 10 meetings, achieving six triumphs in that period, including two triumphs in the current season without conceding a goal - 2-0 and 1-0. Likewise, if we look at the last ten meetings between these teams, the statistics show that eight of those have not contained more than two goals, including each of the previous seven, while the net was calm on at least one side in 6 of the last 7. Interestingly, Cerezo Osaka have won and kept a clean sheet in each of their previous five meetings against Urawa Reds at their Yodoko Sakura Stadium. Despite the fact that Urawa is positioned in the 9th position, it does not change the fact that The Reds have the best defense in the Japanese championship. Urawa will want to take revenge for both league defeats. The stakes are huge. Both teams will want to play in the final of the YBC Levain Cup, so we expect both defenses to be at a high level. I expect a slower pace with few chances.

Cerezo Osaka Team News

Cerezo Osaka will host Urawa without the services of Yusuke Maruhashi, Riki Harakawa and Chaowat Veerachat as the trio are still recovering from injuries.

Coach Akio Kogiku should be pleased with the performance of his team, who are undefeated in their previous three with two triumphs in that time, and the strongest XI is expected.

Urawa Reds Team News

Meanwhile, Urawa travel to Osaka without Tomoya Inukai (Fractured Kneecap) and Bryan Linssen (Hamstring Injury), who are in the recovery room due to injuries.

Urawa, as the team with the biggest budget, is the biggest disappointment this season. With that, Spanish manager Ricardo Rodriguez will want to win the Japan Cup.
