J.League 1 R30 – Urawa vs Kashima Preview

Urawa Reds – Kashima Antlers:

Urawa are in good form and, and seems to have turned their form around the last couple of weeks. A win here will take them just 1 point clear of Kashima who currently holds 3rd place, so it’s a very important match for them.

Kashima on the other hand have had a very tough schedule lately, and their main focus are likely on the ACL semifinal vs Suwon away on Wednesday.  They are still fielding a strong squad here, but with 2 tough cup-games last week as well we can’t expect them to be 100% here. Urawa on the other hand are well-rested, and should win this one comfortably in my opinion despite Kashima’s good league-form.

Both home and over seems like great bets.
