Yokohama and Manchester City go head-to-head at the International Stadium Yokohama for a friendly fixture that sees the two in-form sides looking to maintain their respective runs of good form.
With no stalemate in their last 17 outings across all competitions (W12, L5), and 13 of those matches featuring over 2.5 goals, Yokohama play unapologetically. The hosts are enjoying a purple patch of form, having racked up a four-game winning run ahead of this clash. Three of those wins have seen them score two or more goals, while they’ve managed to keep a clean sheet twice in the process. Interestingly, six of the Fulie’s last 11 games have seen both teams score, with ten of those fixtures featuring goals in both halves. Also, they are unbeaten in their last 14 home matches (W9, D5), with Edson Tavares’ players securing eight consecutive home wins in the build-up to this meeting.
Meanwhile, the visitors come into this encounter off the back of a commanding 6-1 triumph over the Hong Kong outfit Kitchee. That win has seen the Citizens bounce back after a shock defeat to Wolverhampton in the Premier League Asia Trophy final, and was also their second victory in a pre-season so far in which they’ve scored over 3.5 match goals and failed to keep a clean sheet. Pep Guardiola is eager to build on City’s impressive from form the final stage of last season that has seen them put together eight straight wins, five of which have been to nil. Also, six of Man City’s last ten wins have seen them score three or more goals, while seven of them saw City lead at the halftime break.
