J.League 1 R30 – Kawasaki vs Kobe Preview

Kawasaki Frontale – Vissel Kobe:

Kawasaki seems to be heading straight towards their 2nd consecutive league trophy.  Unbeaten on their last 5 matches, and their home-form is very impressive with 6-1-0 on their last 7 with just 1 conceded goal.

Kobe on the other hand are without a win for 7 matches, but we’ll see Iniesta and Podolski from the start here so that should improve things.  But considering the opposition they are probably up for a difficult task, although Kawasaki have had a tendency to slip up at home before. And with that in mind it might be worth taking a shot at a Kobe 1×2, especially at the current price. I expect goals too, but the odds on the Total seems correct.

Kawasaki Expected Starting Lineup:
18Elsinho(I) – 5Taniguchi –-3Nara -2Noborizato
