J.League 1 R10 – Sagan vs Kawasaki Preview

Sagan Tosu – Kawasaki Frontale:

Sagan got 4 straight defeats and have lost 5 out of their last 6 so they are really out of it. Looked fairly good early on in the season but are not playing together as team at the moment and also look weak up front without Ibarbo.  Seems to be going for a new formation here, but not sure how much that will help.

Kawasaki haven’t been hitting on all sylinders so far, but now that they are done with ACL I expect their results to improve. The 4-1 win vs Kashima last round was very impressive and a good morale-booster. They are still missing 2 important players in Kobayashi and Oshima, but got good cover and should still be ok.

Price seems more or less correct, but I find some small value on the -0,5 line on Kawasaki.
