Omiya Ardija U18 (Saitama) will welcome FC Tokyo U-18 (Tokyo) to their home field. With the home side still without a win this season, Omiya will try to take the initiative of the match from the early minutes in search for their first win.
The fixture between Urawa Red Diamonds Youth (Saitama) and Shimizu S-Pulse Youth (Shizuoka) will feature an intriguing matchup between two lefties, as Urawa’s ONO Kakeru (#6) and Shimizu’s SUZUKI Keigo (#25) will clash in the midfield.
Fifth place Yokohama FC Youth (Kanagawa) will face Funabashi Municipal High School (Chiba), who has been struggling to build their offence in the recent matches. TSUBOTANI Shu (#7) will seek to lead the Funabashi side to earn their first win of the season.
Yokohama F.Marinos Youth (Kanagawa) will welcome Aomori Yamada High School (Aomori) to their home this week. In order for the Yokohama side to earn their second win of the season, they must find ways to stop the powerful offence of Aomori Yamada led by NASUKAWA Masaki (#9) and WATANABE Sera (#17), who has scored a league leading 15 goals as a team thus far.
The “Kashiwa derby” will take place this week as Kashiwa Reysol U-18 (Chiba) squares off against Ryutsu Keizai University Kashiwa High School (Chiba). With both sides expected to deploy an aggressive defence system, it will be interesting to see which side will prevail in this enticing matchup.
Second place Nagoya Grampus U-18 (Aichi) will go head to head against third place Sanfrecce Hiroshima F.C Youth (Hiroshima). The two J.League academy sides are known for their firepower, so stay tuned for some hard hit action in this match. We will see which side will score more goals to step ahead in the title race.
In search for their first win of the season, Vissel Kobe U-18 (Hyogo) will try to break down the defence line of Sagan Tosu U-18 (Saga) led by OZAKI Yusei (#4).
Ninth place Higashi Fukuoka High School (Fukuoka) and eighth place Cerezo Osaka U-18 (Osaka) will clash in a fixture between winless teams. OKAZAWA Kosei (#6) will try to dictate the midfield for the Osaka side, while SAGAWA Reiji (#9) will lead the Fukuoka offence to create opportunities.
Gamba Osaka Youth (Osaka) has scored 14 goals during their three game winning streak, and they will seek to extend their streak when they face Kyoto Sanga FC U-18 (Kyoto) this weekend. SAKAMOTO Isa (#11) and MINAMINO Harumi (#18) will lead the Osaka offence to keep the perfect record going.
Led by TERAOKA Junichiro (#5), Ozu High School (Kumamoto) has kept clean sheets in all of their matches so far. They will welcome Jubilo Iwata U-18 (Shizuoka) to their home this week and try to keep TSUJI Hayato (#18) and the Jubilo offence at bay to secure another clean sheet.
