J.League 1 R17 – Cerezo vs Urawa Preview

Cerezo Osaka – Urawa Reds:

Cerezo looked poor last round when they lost 0-3 away vs Shimizu, and are in need of 3 points again here in order to get back in the race for a top 3 finish.  They are without Kiyotake and Kakitani here, who are arguably their 2 most influential players so that’s a bit of a blow.

Urawa got back to winning ways last round, but aren’t showing their full potential as of yet and it’s hard to judge how they will do the coming weeks.   I think we’ll atleast see an open game here with chances at both ends, and the Over 2,5 looks very interesting. I also liked the Cerezo DNB before team-news were out, but will still take a small stake on it as I doubt Cerezo will lose here.
