Osaka Sakura, who defeated Shonan Marine at home in the last round to stop the losing streak, will continue to face Yokohama Mariners at home on the 17th. Head coach Lottina accepted a pre-match interview. In the first round of the match between the two teams on September 13, with the goals of Hirotsuki Kiyotake and Toshiyuki Takagi, Osaka Sakura reversed away and defeated last season's champion Yokohama Mariners. Now they are fighting again after a month. Lotina said: The opponent is the defending champion, and we will face it with the utmost respect." In the first round against Yokohama, Osaka Sakura adopted a three-back lineup. In recent games, the team has returned to the original four-back lineup. Coach Lotina believes that, "There won't be much change for us. There is no need to care about the opponent's lineup system." This round of the game is only 2 days after the last game. Regarding the lineup, he said: "I don't plan to do too much. Change", which means that it is possible to continue to use the main force of the last round. In addition, due to Matsuda's injury, this game will decide to use Katayama Eiichi as the right back.
