Team News: Kashiwa Reysol
There is just one fitness concern for the Kashiwa Reysol manager Nélsinho Baptista to be concerned with from an otherwise complete group. Wataru Iwashita (Metatarsal Fracture) will miss out. Takuma Ominami is ineligible for this match because of suspension.
We are thinking that Kashiwa Reysol should employ a 3-4-2-1 formation for this one and select Masato Sasaki, Kengo Kitazume, Takumi Kamijima, Taiyo Koga, Matheus Savio, Hiromu Mitsumaru, Keiya Shiihashi, Dodi, Tomoya Koyamatsu, Mao Hosoya and Douglas.
Team News: Kawasaki Frontale
Owing to an otherwise available group, there’s just the one fitness worry for the Kawasaki Frontale manager Tōru Oniki to be concerned about. Leandro Damião (Torn Ankle Ligament) won’t be in action. Miki Yamane is ineligible for this match because of suspension.
We are inclined to think that Kawasaki Frontale seem likely to begin the game with a 4-1-2-3 lineup, starting Sung-Ryong Jung, Asahi Sasaki, Jesiel, Shogo Taniguchi, Kyohei Noborizato, Joao Schmidt, Kento Tachibanada, Chanathip Songkrasin, Akihiro Ienaga, Yu Kobayashi and Ten Miyagi.
Our thinking is that Kashiwa Reysol will need things to go their way to score goals against this Kawasaki Frontale outfit who we reckon will score at least once to gain the upper hand.
We therefore see a hard-fought 0-1 winning score for Kawasaki Frontale when the full-time whistle blows.
Should be interesting.
