Fukuoka Hornets won 2-0 against Yokohama FC at home in the last round of the league, achieving five consecutive wins in the league. With this winning streak, the team also came to the middle of the league. This season, Fukuoka Hornets' home performance is not bad, with 7 wins, 2 draws and 3 losses in 12 home matches, including three losses to Kawasaki Frontale, Gamba Osaka and Kobe Victory. Luckily, the team's offense and defense are relatively stable, with 24 goals scored and 16 conceded in 23 rounds of league matches, and 14 goals scored and 12 conceded at home. Striker Yuya Yamagishi is the highest goal scorer in the team, scoring 7 goals in 23 league matches for the team.

Niigata Swans drew 2-2 with Shonan Marine in the last round of league matches, without any win in two rounds of league matches. As a promotion horse, Niigata Swan's first task is to complete relegation, currently ranked 14th in the league, they are 8 points away from the relegation zone of Shonan Marine. With half of the league in progress, the team is not completely free of relegation pressure, especially after the departure of leading scorer Ryotaro Ito. Niigata Swan's defense is not very good, and it has conceded 32 goals in 23 league games so far, with an average of more than 1 goal conceded per game. In addition, the team's offense on the road is even worse, scoring only 9 goals in 11 league away games.

In their first league meeting this season, the hosts Niigata Swans beat Fukuoka Hornets 3-2. However, in the League Cup, Niigata Swans were defeated by Fukuoka Hornets. Will Niigata Swans be able to complete the league double against Fukuoka Hornets when they play on the road?
