Let’s start this preview with match-win probabilities.
J.League Fantasy Best Picks Gameweek 3
Kashifu Bangunagande (FC Tokyo, DEF, ¥7.25M) – The team from the Japanese capital conceded just eight shots from the likes of Urawa and Kashiwa. Of their back four, the 21-year-old left-back is the most likely to get an attacking return.
Daiju Sasaki (Vissel Kobe, MID, ¥5.00M) – It looks like Kobe will be lining up in a 4-4-2 formation, at least for the time being, with Sasaki on the right wing, which makes him a valuable pick. He already scored in the last game.

19:00 JST Yokohama F. Marinos v Sanfrecce Hiroshima
13:00 JST Kawasaki Frontale v Shonan Bellmare
14:00 JST Albirex Niigata v Hokkaido Consadole Sapporo
In my season preview, I wrote about ruthless Matsuhashi Roulette. Niigata’s coach made four changes to the previous XI in the last game. Let’s see how accurate I’ll be.
14:00 JST Kyoto Sanga v FC Tokyo
14:00 JST Vissel Kobe v Gamba Osaka
14:00 JST Yokohama FC v Kashima Antlers
15:00 JST Avispa Fukuoka v Kashiwa Reysol
15:00 JST Sagan Tosu v Nagoya Grampus
Ryonosuke Kabayama came off the bench last game and turned into Messi for a minute scoring a spectacular goal. Naturally a left winger; he was playing right wingback last week.
15:00 JST Urawa Red Diamonds v Cerezo Osaka
Bryan Linssen was subbed off at halftime for Shinzo Koroki. Whether it was injury-forced substitution or a tactical decision, one thing is certain: the attack with Koroki looked more lively.
