Kashima Antlers to Win

Sagan Tosu brought an end to Kashima Antlers’ twelve match unbeaten run with a 2-1 defeat. Naoki Soma will be looking to get back in their groove and Cerezo Osaka provides them with the perfect opportunity. The Sakura are winless in their last four matches and have only five of their 22 points have come from their adventures on the road. History is also on Kashima Antlers side, winning six and drawing one of their last seven H2H meetings.

Total Goals Under 2.5

Kashima have seen nine matches end with an Over 2.5 goals scoreline. On the other hand, Cerezo have seen nine matches with three or fewer goals. Couple this with Cerezo’s last four successive away trips seeing the Under 2.5 being realized. With the Antlers not having enough firepower to secure the result on their own, it is likely going to be a low-scoring effort in their favour.

Both Teams to Score: No

Naoki Soma’s men have kept two clean sheets in their last five home fixtures. Meanwhile, Cerezo have had troubles scoring on the road, getting on the scoreboard only once in their last four away trips. Moreover, in the five of the last six H2H meetings at the Kashima Soccer Stadium, a clean sheet has been observed.

Kashima Antlers vs Cerezo Osaka Fixture Preview

Kashima Antlers

The Antlers are a shoo-in to improve on their fifth-place finish last year. They have found the correct rhythm in attack and defence to put their rivals on the back foot. Naoki Soma still has to work on his side’s defensive tactics and will be pleased with how their attacking lineup is faring. However, it is the continued impressive performances of Ryotaro Araki that have stolen the limelight. The 19-year-old is leading the Antlers scoring and assist charts with five goals and three assists.

Cerezo Osaka

Levir Culpi’s men impressively started the season but have slipped down the points table with a poor run of form. Cerezo Osaka have been reliable in the comforts of Yanmar Stadium Nagai but have struggled away from it. Both the defence and attack have crumbled under pressure on the road, an area that needs to be addressed as the first of the season comes to a close. The Sakura’s reliance on 38-year-old Yoshito Okubo is hurting them and they need younger, fresher legs to lead them in the front.
