A month ago JEF United looked certainties for relegation, but Alex Miller’s men have launched a late bid for salvation as the Chiba Dogs chase their fifth straight win in this match.


United have seen off Tokyo Verdy, Consadole Sapporo, Nagoya Grampus and Kyoto Sanga during that run of good form, and another win Matka Result  here could be enough to lift them out of the relegation/promotion playoff place.


They’ll have a determined Urawa Reds standing in the way, and after drawing 2-2 at home to Kyoto Sanga in a rescheduled Round 26 fixture in midweek, the Reds will be looking to keep the pressure on league leaders Kashima Antlers when they travel to a sold-out ’Fukuari’ for this blockbuster Sunday-afternoon encounter.


Relegation worries will be thick in the air on Sunday, with second-from-bottom Jubilo Iwata also desperate to take all three points off bottom club Consadole Sapporo at what should be a packed Yamaha Stadium in Iwata.
