Team News: Yokohama FC
Gabriel (Cruciate Ligament Injury), Taiga Nishiyama (Fractured Jaw) and Takuya Wada (Fractured Foot) won’t be able to feature for Yokohama FC gaffer Shuhei Yomoda.
We are thinking that Yokohama FC should use a 3-4-2-1 system featuring Kengo Nagai, Katsuya Iwatake, Boniface Nduka, Mateus Moraes, Tomoki Kondo, Towa Yamane, Yuri, Shion Inoue, Keijiro Ogawa, Ryoya Yamashita and Sho Ito.
Team News: Kashiwa Reysol
Kashiwa Reysol manager Masami Ihara has a number of players out of action. Faruzansana Mohamado (Hamstring Injury), Ota Yamamoto (Forearm Fracture) and Bueno (Knee Surgery) are names that won’t be on the team sheet.
It’s our belief that Kashiwa Reysol seem likely to make use of a 4-4-2 lineup, settling for Kenta Matsumoto, Eiichi Katayama, Tomoya Inukai, Taiyo Koga, Hiromu Mitsumaru, Yuto Yamada, Tomoki Takamine, Keiya Shiihashi, Matheus Savio, Mao Hosoya and Kota Yamada.
In our opinion, Yokohama FC could find themselves struggling to score goals against this Kashiwa Reysol side who we think will get the vital goal that wins it.
That’s why our selection here is for a very competitive game with a 0-1 victory for Kashiwa Reysol at full-time.
There should be little in it.
