Any time Hokkaido Consadole Sapporo take the pitch, fireworks follow. That will be the case on Saturday at 7 pm JST when they play Sagan Tosu in a match that will be streamed live on the J.League International YouTube channel.
Consa have scored 37 goals this season, good for 2.3 per game. That is tops in the league, but they have also conceded 31 goals per game. That is the third worst mark in the league.
A week ago, Sapporo won 5-4, scoring in the 10th minute to kick off a wild game that finished with them conceding an equalizer in stoppage time before hitting back with a winner two minutes later.
Simply said, whenever Consa play, you can bet on chances and goals on both ends of the pitch.
Sagan will be hoping to take advantage of Sapporo’s leaky defense. Their attack sputters from time to time, but they are a tough defensive team that knows how to manage matches and that is why they are riding a five-match unbeaten streak. The goals will come in this match with Consa, but they are betting they can get the better of high-flying visitors and extend that unbeaten run.
The J.League announced that up to four matches will be streamed live each week for the 2023 season, bringing one of Asia’s top league’s to fans around the world. The streams will be free to view on the J.League International YouTube channel in any country that does not have an existing rights agreement.
