Urawa Reds - Kashima Antlers

Asian Handicap
Pick: Kashima -0.25
Odds: 1.72
Stake: 1

Match date: 03/04/2021

Going again against Urawa Reds as I think their struggle will continue. As I've said before they lack quality at the moment and the recent reports is that they may sign a striker from the Norwegian league. This means they don't trust a lot the attacking options that they have and indeed they don't have too much quality there. Maybe with the return of Shinzo Koroki they will be better going forward, but the former Kashima Antlers striker just returned after some months on the sidelines and his fitness is not very good at the moment. One of their best signing in the winter transfer window, Daigo Nishi also missed the start of the season and made his first appearance in the League Cup against Kashiwa Reysol. Nishi, also a former Kashima player, can be a very important player for Reds, but let's see how he is after injury. 

On the other hand, we have Kashima Antlers who didn't start the season as was expected. The Antlers dropped a lot points against inferior sides, but I think they can bounce back as the quality is there. Despite having a poor form in the league, the morale should be good after they put a strong performance in the League Cup last weekend by beating Avispa Fukuoka by 5 goals to one. Centre back Inukai is suspended but Machida returns after international duty. 

Both are important teams in the Japanese football, but at the moment Kashima Antlers looks the better side and they should have the edge of Saturday.
