TKY Vs SAP Fantasy Team, Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Tokyo’s remarkable downtick in form sees them lose out on the battle for the glistening title.
Only a couple of weeks back, if there was one side which was fathomed to serve up any kind of a fight to Frontale for this season’s title, it was Tokyo. In second place at the point, the club was refusing to go away, a team persistently breathing down Frontale’s neck.
However, things are quick to change in the sporting fraternity and Tokyo’s four defeats on the spin ever since hammer home that narrative. From being a club which was snapping at the heels of first place to plummeting all the way down into 6th position, its fair to say that Tokyo’s title fight has flickered before it could flare up.
The most damaging was the bygone defeat to Frontale, a 2-1 loss which increased Tokyo’s deficit from first place to a mammoth 19 points. Its way too large a margin to paper over with the club only left fighting for lost pride at the moment.
Where Tokyo have lost all steam currently, Sapporo on the other hand are busy reviving their season. The club’s renaissance was completed by it comprehensively thumped league leaders Frontale 2-0 in its most recent outing.
Their incredible resurgence holds them in good stead ahead of the upcoming tie, one they should manage to just about scamper to a win in.

TKY Vs SAP Fantasy Team Picks
Given the manner in which his side’s backline has collapsed, Go Hatano has seen his goal plundered at the moment. He’s bound to be peppered with shots today as well but his ability to tame shots and quash them see us opt for his services.
It wasn’t too long back that Sapporo’s defence was being clobbered by teams. A skewed backline, one sent skittling by almost everyone, Sapporo’s new found resillinace at the back has been responsible for their consummate success.
The side has registered three cleansheets in its last four outings, a period which has not only seen them register three wins but also curb the table toppers from scoring. The side is doing all the dirty work currently, closing out the ball perfectly to see us opt for Shunta Tanaka, Tomoki Takamine and Akito Fukumori from the team.
Tokyo meanwhile will see Tsuyoshi Watanabe retain his place in our framework, a player who has as ever been largely immaculate.
Lucas Fernandes has been a rock for Sapporo all across the course of the season. Not only has he placated attacks but has pacified his side’s qualms in the attacking side of the game as well by sending the ball across the face of the goal.
Yoshiaki Komai will be her partner for the upcoming contest while Shuto Abe’s assist the last time he stepped onto the pitch sees him earn a place in our team for the day.
With five goals and two assists, Takuma Arano will be the lone pick for us from the visiting team. Tokyo on the other hand will see us indulge in the services of their leading scorer Diego Oliveira who has nine goals in his kitty.
Partnering him up for the upcoming showdown is Leandro Moura courtesy of the 8 goals he’s hit home for the club.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Moura also has the five assists to his name, ones which make him our captain for the day Arano is our vice-captain.
