J.League 1 R13 – Hiroshima vs Kobe Preview

Sanfrecce Hiroshima – Vissel Kobe:

Hiroshima continues to impress, and have managed to create a rather big gap down to the other teams on the table.  Their form is destined to take a plunge sooner or later though, and Kobe can be a potential tricky match for them I think.

Kobe aren’t playing anywhere near their full potential I think, but got some good news in Leandro returning to the pitch last round. On the other hand, Podolski picked up an injury that will keep him out for 2 months or so but I actually think this Kobe-side might play better without Podolski on the pitch.

Odds seems more or less correct, but I still wanna speculate in a small 1×2 bet on Kobe here especially with Hiroshima likely to play without Mizumoto at the back.

Expected Starting Lineup Hiroshima:
33Wada – 23Yoshino*– 2Nogami* – 19Sasaki*
