Team News: Kawasaki Frontale
Ryota Oshima (Disrupted Calf Muscle) and Kazuya Yamamura (Biceps femoris muscle injury) won’t be able to feature for Frontale gaffer Tōru Oniki.
Team News: Nagoya Grampus
Owing to an otherwise healthy squad, there’s only a single fitness problem for the Nagoya Grampus boss Massimo Ficcadenti to be concerned with. Mu Kanazaki (Cruciate Ligament Injury) won’t be playing here.
In our opinion, Kawasaki Frontale can get the win and a possible clean sheet when they meet Nagoya Grampus, who might well find it a difficult task to break down their defence.
We’re therefore anticipating a comfortable 2-0 margin for Kawasaki Frontale at the end of the match.
