Team News: Kashiwa Reysol
Thanks to a fully healthy squad available to choose from, Kashiwa Reysol boss Nélsinho Baptista doesn’t have any fitness worries to report before this clash.
Our feeling is that Kashiwa Reysol and Nagoya Grampus should both be able to score more than once here although it’s hard to pick a clear winner.
Shouldn’t be much in it, and there should be goals with a draw being quite a realistic outcome. With that in mind, we reckon that it will be a highly competitive game with a 2-2 score draw at the end of the 90.
