Sorare. Predicted lineups for GW 265 for J1 League & ACL


This GW we see 3 ACL games involving J1 league side and 4 standard J League games.

I have made the predicted lineups for games on the Sorare Sharp app which can be found here:

I have also copy pasted the image of the lineups incase you have difficulty accessing the app. I would recommend checking the app though as it will show other options that could play for each player.

Important to note the %s used here and where they are not above 80% it is because I feel there is some risk involved. My main aim with these is to show where risk/potential DNPs are lurking.

I base these %s on info I read from various sources including comments from the manager.

Player Suspensions & Injuries

I have made a new page on the site that has all known player injuries. I can be found here

J1 League GW265

Jubilo Iwata vs Nagoya

  • The keeper Miura was injured in the last game and hasnt been seen in training. I expect Koselev to play here.

Nagoya Grampus

  • Nagoya have been playing 3 at the back for the last couple of game and doing a lot better defensively. I see this continuing here.

Hokkaido Saporo vs Shonan Bellmare

  • Fukumori not see in training so assumed out for this game

  • Kaneko and Ogashiwa in full training however werent in the league cup squad so I see them as doubts here too

Shimizu S-Pulse vs Hiroshima

  • Matsuoka should start here as is now in full training and played the league cup

  • C.Junior and Nishizawa are still working on their fitness though are also in with a shot to play and be on the bench at the very least

  • J.Santos scored twice and should be rewarded with a start here

Kyoto vs Fukuoka

  • Kawasaki was taken off injured last game and hasnt been seen in training pics/league cup game so remain a doubt for this one.

  • Utaka also has been struggling with conditioning/fitness and not seen in recent training pics - could just be rested for this one as he is their main striker and they will want to keep him fresh as possible for the league

C.Osaka vs Kashima Antlers

  • Okuno has been seen at training however, for me is still a doubt for this one as not sure about his fitness levels

  • Mendes and Taggart both have a chance to start this one but for time being ive kept Kato

  • I see Kiyotake starting this one

  • Araki missed a penalty in the league cup game and still struggling a little with form so I dont see him starting here

  • Ueda didnt play the league cup game but was seen training the last couple of days so should start here.

Kashiwa Reysol vs Sagan Tosu

  • Savio has been managing an injury and came on to score twice in the league cup on the weekend. Slight doubt for this one but I see him starting.

  • Douglas still remain missing and dont expect him to start here

  • No update on Nishikawa and Miyashiro and they didnt play in the cup game so assumed out

  • Honda and/or Ino could well play in this one, Sagan are seeing a lot of rotation in the the attacking spots.

  • Hwang Seok Ho could start here - he played 90 in the cup but was on the bench the last league game and im not sure his position in the team yet


As a reminder, you can find some general info I did for the ACL on this post. We have lots of uneven match ups with the CSL teams who have sent out their youth teams. I am personally targeting these games for Sorare

ACL - GW265


  • I see plenty of rotation for Urawa again for this one. Iwao should come back in after suspension. Ohata, Matsuo, Junker and Mawatari also are in the running to be brought back in. Sakai was injured last game and info still TBC but I dont see him starting this one

Yokohama FM

  • For YFM - I see the continued flipping of the foreign players with Eduardo, Ceara and M.Junior all starting

  • Tsunoda is suspended for this game and the length of his suspension will go to the ACL committee


  • Damiao is very likely to start this one. Wakasaki did very well last game but I wouldnt be surprised if he was on the bench here with Schmidt start, hard one to call.

  • Ienaga returned for the last game and will start depending on his condition. He is struggling a little with his fitness so Chinen or Kobayashi may replace him


I hope you found this useful!
