AsiaDespatch.org – Johor Darul Ta’zim will host Nagoya Grampus in the first round of the AFC Champions League Group G zone 2020/21, Tuesday (22/6/21) at Stadium Rajamangala National. After last season they were no better off for the AFC now Johor Darul Ta’zim is trying their luck again. Besides, Nagoya Grampus was finally able to return after several years of being absent from this competition.
- Trying to Look Better
The Nagoya Grampus team is doing quite well in carrying out their local agenda in J League 1. So far they are entering the middle of the season with a pretty impressive score.
Nagoya Grampus is able to sit in second place and try to improve from its position last year. Last year they were only able to finish third in the 2020 J League final standings.
Of course, these nicks bring a ticket to undergo the AFC Champions League. However, previously Nagoya Grampus had to go through a qualifying party before they were finally declared to have qualified and entered Group G.
The struggle of Nagoya Grampus deserves to be appreciated when they are now ranked second out of a total of 20 matches that have been played. Of course they still have a long way to go and this AFC event will be one of the important agendas to gain popularity.
Instead of being better in the local league, of course, this Nagoya Grampus fight will be tested if they are able to survive in the group phase. Darul is a team that deserves to test their level.
However, it turns out that Nagoya Grampus is still struggling in the J League. Being able to do better at the beginning of the season, it turns out that their consistency has decreased.
They have lost two of their last 5 J League games. Fortunately, some of these misfortunes were cured in the Emperor Cup, which includes other local competitions in Japan.
A big victory in the Emperor Cup 5-0 is a good capital to face teams of different classes. Facing the physicality of Malaysian players, of course, must refer to the Japanese national team.
Where the Japanese national team is superior to the Malaysian national team. Although actually speaking for a local club, of course it will be more special because of the foreign players.
The Nagoya Grampus team itself is filled with several foreign players. There are attacking midfielders Mateus and Gabriel Xavier who is a Brazilian citizen.
So far, the contribution of these foreign players, especially Mateus, is quite impressive. He is listed as the top scorer at the Nagoya Grampus club.
Which means the foreign midfielder is able to appear productive. His performance rating is also quite high compared to other Nagoya Grampus players.
Although Nagoya Grampus doesn’t have many foreign players, their movements are quite sharp. And of course, Nagoya Grampus itself is superior in many ways and is the favorite candidate for the leader of this group G.
- Has Sharp Ammo
Different from Nagoya Grampus, it seems that Darul Ta’zim is filled with quite a few foreign players. Even though Nagoya Grampus is indeed quite strong, Darul Ta’zim is not a weak team.
There are several key players who will differentiate from enemy teams such as Gonzalo Cabrera to Mauricio. Of course, the sharpness of local players is quite good, such as the striker who has number 29, namely Muhd Safawi Rasid.
This does not mean that Darul Ta’zim, who is able to have more foreign players, will be stronger than Nagoya. Nagoya Grampus itself is a pretty good team in relying on acceleration between the wings. This game is predictable online slot gambling site will be won narrowly by Nagoya Grampus.
