Consadole Sapporo – Vissel Kobe:
Consadole with 2 wins in a row, and despite going behind 0-2 vs Tokyo and 0-1 vs Shimizu and they showed good team-strength to turn the match around. They had 2 decent performances prior to that as well, and are still in an impressive 4th place. They are still missing AM Miyoshi who’s busy with Asian Games, but it has worked well with both Tokura and Jay on the pitch as well.
Kobe have looked a lot better after Iniesta signed for them, but they now have 2 losses in a row with 0-5 in goal difference. Consadole is never an easy team to meet at home, and it will be a packed stadium here with the Iniesta-effect in place which can only be an advantage for the home-team.
They should avoid defeat, so the DNB on Consadole looks interesting here, and I also think we’ll see goals at both ends and fancy the Over 2,5 as well.
