J.League 1 R5 – Cerezo vs Shonan Preview

Cerezo Osaka – Shonan Bellmare:

Cerezo are somehow yet to win a match this season, which is hugely disappointing as they have ambitions of challenging for the title.  They got 3 draws though so it hasn’t been all that bad but they showed some major weaknesses defensively.

Shonan can be happy with their start as they have picked up 5 points so far. They haven’t had the hardest schedule though, but got a couple of tough matches coming up now so that will soon change.  They’ve looked very under the last couple of games which is very unlike Shonan, and against a team like Cerezo I expect to see them being a bit more offensive.

Should be an open-match with lots of chances on both ends, and the Over 2,25 line looks golden.

2Matsuda – 22Jonjic – 15Kimoto – 14Maruhashi
