J.League 1 R21 – Kobe vs Iwata Preview

Vissel Kobe – Jubilo Iwata:

Both Iniesta and Podolski are expected to be back in the starting line-up for this match, and that should give the home-side a big boost here. Kobe are in 5th place, and just a few points behind 4th which can give ACL, so they got their goals within sight.

Iwata rarely lose these days though, and got 1-4-0 on their last 5 but with injuries still causing a lot of concern for them ( the latest being DF Shinzato who will be out for 5 months) I got to back Kobe here at such a good price (-0,25).

Expected Starting Lineup Kobe:
18Kim (I)
24Mihara – 3Watanabe – 25Osaki –  30Theerathorn
