Kashima Antlers continue to shock the world, clinching a 3-2 home win over Vegalta Sendai last Sunday. The Ibaraki team are unstoppable under new boss Masatada Ishii. I don’t think Montedio Yamagata’s defenders can keep their attackers at bay.
Kashima midfielder Gaku Shibasaki, who played an important role for Japan at East Asian Cup earlier this month, is in top form. His creativity makes him a great asset for the team.
Montedio Yamagata suffered a 3-1 loss to Sagan Tosu last Sunday. Striker Hiroyuki Takasaki, who is on loan from Kashima, is not eligible to face his parent club this week, meaning Yamagata’s striking force will be further weakened.
I reckon Kashima Antlers can win this match.
