REY Vs TSU Fantasy Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Sagan’s resurgence looks to down a Kashiwa ship fast sinking.
Sitting right in the trenches of the points tally of the J1 League, Sagan Tosu have done something across the course of the last month which the side had failed to do all season long. Unbeaten in its last five matchups in the league, the club has for the first time punched above its weight and shown the stomach of a fight which the club was devoid of for the length of the season.
Their results have seen them instil fresh life into their season, getting much needed breathing space to slaw out of the bottom spots and move into 15th spot. Finally catering out a brand of football their ardent supporters yearned for all season long, the side will be looking to keep its speckle free run going when it steps out after a hiatus of two weeks.
Where they are going from strength to strength, Kashiwa on the other hand have fallen apart and lost their way off late. With just the one win in their last five outings, the club has lost massive ground in its pursuit of a top 4 spot with the side plummeting all the way down into 10th place.
REY Vs TSU Fantasy Probable Winner
A closely contested encounter given the form both these clubs are in, we envisage Kashia just about tottering their way to a one goal win.

Tosu’s new found resillinace and perseverance is down to the side’s uptick in the defensive side of the game. They have kept three cleansheets in their last five matches, shut downs which the club has had Park Il-Kyu to thank for.
CB Daiki Miya has been crucial to the side’s girt and resolve in defence as well to see him link up with his shot stopper. Kashiwa on the other hand see us opt for the indomitable duo of Tatsuya Yamashita and Takuma Ominami with the two offering unstinted support to the club’s defensive gameplan.
Scoring for the side in their foregone fixture, Tiago Alves becomes the first pick for us from Sagan in this slot. CDM Yuta Higuchi links up with him, a player who has done for the dirty defensive work for the club.
Kashiwa on the other hand will also be represented by an akin duo. Its one comprising of Ataru Esaka who scored the last time he appeared for the club with Masatoshi Mihara joining up with him.
Not only his side’s but the league’s leading scorer as well with a behemoth 23 strikers to his name, Michael Olunga was a must have pick for us. Cristiano da Silva who has the two goals and five assists form the partnership from the club, a one-two which has blown apart defences this term.
Tosu’s top scorer with seven goals in his kitty, Daichi Hayashi lines up for us from the visiting side.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Olunga’s staggering 23 goals will see him be our captain while Cristiano is the vice-captain.
Park, Miya, Yamashita, Ominami, Higuchi, Esaka, Mihara, Alves, Cristiano, Olunga, Daichi
