Team News: Kashiwa Reysol
It’s a low absenteeism rate, with just one fitness concern for the Kashiwa Reysol manager Nélsinho Baptista to be concerned about due to a largely intact group. Douglas (Knee Surgery) misses out.
Team News: Vissel Kobe
Vissel Kobe boss Miguel Lotina has multiple availability issues to deal with. Tomoaki Makino (Calf Strain), Noriaki Fujimoto (torn tendon) and Sergi Samper (Cruciate Ligament Injury) will miss out on this game.
We envisage that Vissel Kobe are dangerous enough to find the back of the net against this Kashiwa Reysol lineup, although that may not prevent them from conceding a couple at the other end.
We think that it’s going to be a close game with a 2-1 advantage for Kashiwa Reysol by the time that the referee blows the final whistle. Could easily see this go either way.
