The Urawa Reds welcome Yokohama F. Marinos to the Saitama Stadium in J1 League action on Wednesday.

The home side qualified for the round of 16 fixtures in the AFC Champions League but have not been able to replicate that form in the league, as they have played five back-to-back draws in the league so far. Their last two games have ended in goalless draws.

Yokohama F. Marinos also secured a place in the knockout stage of the Champions League last month. Contrary to the hosts, they have resumed their league campaign with back-to-back wins. They secured a 4-1 win against Shonan Bellmare last time around.

Urawa Reds vs Yokohama F. Marinos Prediction

Yokohama Marinos are the top-scoring side in the division with 23 goals from 12 games while the hosts have the second-best defensive record, conceding 10 goals in 12 games.

The hosts will have to improve their attacking output in hopes of a positive outing here. They have failed to score in their last three league games, so we might be in for a low-scoring game. We expect the visitors to eke out a narrow win.

Prediction: Urawa Reds 0-1 Yokohama F. Marinos
