J.League 1 R22 – Nagasaki vs Kashima Preview

V-Varen Nagasaki – Kashima Antlers:

Nagasaki seems a bit out of it with just 1 win on their last 5 matches, but they have only met very strong teams and managed to put in a good fight in all the matches. They got 3-2-4 at home so far this season and I think they got a decent chance at getting back on track here vs a Kashima-side who’s also struggling.

Kashima are still struggling with injuries, and they look particularly weak in defence.  They got 2-3-5 away this season and although they are the stronger team and deserves to be the favorite I find very good value on Nagasaki here. Both the +0,5 HCP and 1×2 home looks promising.

Nagasaki Expected Starting Lineup:
32Tokunaga – 4Takasugi – 45Buis
3Iio – 15Shimada – 38Isomura – 28Onaga
19Sawada – 9Juanma
