J.League 1 R3 – Kashima – Hiroshima Preview

Kashima Antlers – Sanfrecce Hiroshima:

Kashima are yet to lose this season, and are off to a good start both in ACL and in the league. They won 2-0 in Sydney midweek fielding a weakened squad. Hiroshima as well can be very happy with 3 wins out of 3 possible in all competitions, but I doubt it will continue for too long.

Kashima are missing a bunch of players here so they are quite weakened, but I still think they got enough depth to win this one easily. No bets.

Expected Starting Lineup Kashima:
1Kwoun Sun-Tae
32Anzai* – 3Shoji – 5Ueda – 6Yamamoto*
30Abe* – 20Misao – 40Ogasawara* – 8Doi*
7Pedro Junior – 10Kanazaki (I)

DF Nishi (S/R)
DF Uchida (R)
AM Leandro (R/I)
AM Endo (R)
MF Leo Silva (I)

Team Strength:


Expected Starting Lineup Hiroshima:
33Wada – 4Mizumoto – 2Nogami* – 19Sasaki*

DF Chiba (R)

Prediction: 2-0
