Kashima Antlers – Vissel Kobe:
Kashima is still struggling and only got 3 wins to their name after 9 matches. They have lost 3 out of their last 4 matches, but all 3 were away. More alarmingly though is how few goals they are scoring. 6 goals in 9 matches is extremely low for a club like Kashima, and all their home-matches so far have gone under 2,5.
Kobe are on a good rund with 3 wins in their last 4 and seems to finally have found their rhythm. They won their last 2 away-matches and might be able go get away with something here as well considering Kashima’s injuries and form.
Odds on HCP looks correct though, so I’m more interested in an Under 2,75 as Kobe have been quite under away so far this season as well.
Expected Starting Lineup Kashima:
23Ito – 5Ueda – 39Inukai*- 23Oda*
