Oita Trinita look to extend their four-match unbeaten run in Japan's J-League when entertaining strugglers Sanfrecce Hiroshima on Wednesday. In a clash between two mid-table sides, both want to gradually creep their way up the standings as we reach the midway point in an eventful campaign to date.

Oita have won three successive matches for the first time in 2020, while Hiroshima have just two from their last eight (L3, D3). Can either side emerge victorious in midweek? Read my match preview, for the correct score predictions and best betting tips ahead of this fixture.

Oita Trinita vs Sanfrecce Hiroshima Betting Tips

It's 10th versus 11th as Oita host Hiroshima on Wednesday morning, though there's plenty of movement that can be made in either direction depending on this result.

Hiroshima (22 points, 16 games played) boast a better goal difference than Oita (level on points, played two more matches). Eight points separate them and fourth-placed Nagoya Grampus Eight in the final Champions League qualification berth, but there's still a long way to go.

Their inconsistent form isn't helping matters though: a 1-1 draw with Kashiwa Reysol on Saturday means they have three draws in their last seven games. For context, they had just one in their first nine league games.

Add to that, frustrating defeats – six already this season – and you could be forgiven for feeling as though their Champions League charge is futile.

A much-needed away result here would go some way to changing that narrative, but Oita have proven difficult to beat in their recent H2H meetings. Although they still lead the historical H2H (four wins, three draws, two defeats), Wednesday's hosts are unbeaten in their last three matches (two wins, one draw). This could be interesting.

Oita Trinita vs Sanfrecce Hiroshima Correct Score Predictions

As mentioned, Hiroshima hold a superior H2H record but Oita have improved in recent meetings and would love to continue that trend here. Their come-from-behind 2-1 victory on MD3, back in July, is sure to provide them with much-needed confidence that they can do the double over their upcoming visitors too.

I'm backing them to do precisely that here, with another narrow win.
