Kashiwa Reysol – Consadole Sapporo:
Reysol are in good form with 3-2-1 on their last 6 and are scoring a decent amount of goals as well lately. At home they got 2-1-1, but they have met relatively strong teams so far.
Consadole needed a last minute winner from Tokura to secure all 3 points at home vs Shonan last round which means their good form is still intact. They are playing some impressive football too and love to counter-attack so I think we could be in for an open game here with chances at both ends.
Reysol are expected to control the play, but their at times shaky defence will get their hands full vs the quick offensive players of Consadole. Goals at both ends therefore seems very likely, and the Over 2,25 looks extremely promising to me.
Reysol are favorites but in their current form Consadole seem capable of go neck and neck with even the best teams in the league, but it’s still too early to trust them in a tough away-match like this so no bets on the HCP.

13Koike – 4Nakatani – 22Park – 5Nakayama
