Prediction for Oita Trinita versus Urawa Reds

Urawa Reds are now one of the most successful teams in the J1 League, in contrast to Oita Trinita, who have been struggling.

The hosts have struggled in front of goal this season and may not be able to exploit Urawa Reds’ more expansive style of play. The visitors are expected to win by a large margin.

Oita Trinta 0-2 Urawa Reds is my prediction.
