Team News: Gamba Osaka
Haruto Shirai (Hand fracture), Gen Shoji (Ankle problems), Yun-oh Lee (Torn Meniscus) and Jun Ichimori (Acromioclavicular Separation) are not available for Gamba Osaka manager Tsuneyasu Miyamoto.
Team News: Kawasaki Frontale
Frontale manager Tōru Oniki has some current player fitness concerns. Tatsuya Hasegawa (Medial Collateral Ligament Tear), Kengo Nakamura (Fitness) and Eisuke Fujishima (Cruciate Ligament Surgery) miss out here.
We envisage that Gamba Osaka will likely create enough chances to find the back of the net against this Kawasaki Frontale lineup, but one goal possibly won’t quite be enough to avoid a loss.
Therefore, we’re predicting both teams to score in a 1-2 winning margin for Kawasaki Frontale at full-time. We’ll have to see what happens.
