Sanfrecce Hiroshima are the host nation so will have the majority of the crowd on their side. Hiroshima are based over 700KM away from Yokohama but they will have a good support as the neutrals will back them. Sanfrecce are playing for the 1st time in any continental finals after winning their maiden title last week in J- League. The team from Hiroshima are renowned in Japan for their amazing production line of talent. Indeed the vast majority of the squad have been promoted from the youth setup. With only three foreign players within the squad this really is a Japanese success story. The team plays exciting attacking football,  with the superb Hisato Sato regularly ending the moves with his clinical finishing. The Japanese international has been sensational, scoring 26 goals in 39 games this season. Other players to watch out for are the veteran Morisaki twins. Both are products of the youth setup and SanFre legends.

Auckland are almost FIFA World Club Cup regulars, with 3 appearances and a creditable 5th place finish in 2009 where they defeated Al Ahli and TP Mazembe. The club from New Zealand is a real cosmopolitan side, boasting players from all across the globe. With four Spaniards, a Costa Rican and an Argentinian amongst others they do have quality within their ranks. However they will suffer due to the lack of competition in their domestic league. Playing in front of crowds of 2,000 against part time players and winning games 7-3 and 6-0 is hardly great preparation. They won the OFC Champions League for the fourth time to gain entry into the tournament. For a team who have only been in existence for eight years they have come a long way.


1.30 Sanfrecce Hiroshima  (Bet-at-home)is the selection in this game. Can only really see one result here in a heavily one sided betting market.  Auckland cannot even claim to be the best side in their country as Wellington Phoenix would be league winners many times over if they had never opted for the professional league in Australia. Hiroshima are a very exciting side, capable of sublime football. They should have no problems at all here and conserving energy may be their only problem. Stroll in the park for the Japanese champions.

Sanfrecce is the selection here at 1.66 -1.5 goals (Pinnacle) Due to the short price of Sanfrecce we have to look to the high handicaps to find value. Sanfrecce are many levels above their rivals and should have an easy win here. I am not going too high on the handicap as the Japanese side have another game scheduled within three days. Energy conservation may come into play. after going a couple of goals up.  Auckland do have a little quality and will battle hard so I take the -1.5 handicap.

Under 3.00 goals is the selection at 1.73(188bet). This is a really one sided match and Hiroshima could run up a big score if they needed too. However they may ease up here when the game is won. I cannot see Auckland having many attacks and don’t believe they pose a goal threat. We have to look at the under/over 3 goal asian as the spread is higher than usual. In this market stakes are refunded if exactly 3 goals are scored. I am taking the unders which is moving down already so suggest an early bet before the value goes.
