Kashima Antlers to Win

Vegalta Sendai makes the trip to the Kashima Soccer Stadium on the back of a disappointing 0-1 loss in the Emperor’s Cup. They have their work cut out for themselves in this fixture, with Kashima Antlers on song. They have won four of their last five competitive matches and went toe-to-toe in the 2-1 away defeat to Kawasaki Frontale.  The Antlers are on a five-match winning streak in H2H battles with Vegalta Sendai and should be able to stretch it to six.

Total Goals Over 2.5

In the comforts of home surroundings, they should be able to continue their form and move up the points table. But it is how they should be able to achieve this that holds importance. While Vegalta Sendai succumbed to a hapless defeat, Kashima Antlers registered an emphatic 8-1 victory over YSCC. With just one of Kashima Antlers last five fixtures seeing less than three goals, the outcome of this matchup should bring in Over 2.5 goals.

Both Teams to Score: Yes

Two teams on opposite spectrums come together as Kashima Antlers host Vegalta Sendai. Vegalta Sendai have the second-worst defence in the J1 League, while the hosts have the third-best attack. Goals should come with ease as they face off with Vegalta Sendai fancying their chances. The Antlers tend to leave open spaces when going forward, as evidenced by the 20 goals they have conceded this season.

Kashima Antlers vs Vegalta Sendai Fixture Preview

Kashima Antlers

In his caretaker role with Kashima Antlers, Naoki Soma has ensured that the squad plays an attacking brand of football. They have scored 28 goals in J1 League, third-highest behind Kawasaki Frontale and Yokohama F. Marinos. However, this attacking enterprise leaves them susceptible at the back. While Frontale and Marinos have only conceded 15 goals, the Antlers have shipped in 20. If they are to make a serious push up the points table, Kashima Antlers needs to shore up their defences.

Vegalta Sendai

Makoto Teguramori has the explicit task of ensuring that Vegalta Sendai uses their lifeline and remain in the J1 League. It is a tall order for a side that should have been relegated last season but did not due to regulations introduced due to the Covid 19 pandemic. They seem to be stuck in the same rut in the current campaign. While the defence has been called out for conceding goals cheaply, the attackers have not held their end of the bargain with just 14 goals scored.
