Kashima Antlers or Draw

After going on an unbeaten run, Nagoya Grampus have suffered three in five. Sagan Tosu made the first mark and Kawasaki Frontale opened the flood gates. The Grampus failed against the free-scoring Frontale and now take on the challenge of Kashima Antlers, unbeaten in nine competitive outings. Form and history are on the side of the Antlers, who won the last meeting at Toyota Stadium 1-3 in September last year.

Total Goals Over 2.5

The Grampus and Antlers are in stark contrast to each other. The hosts like to keep the scorers’ duties to a minimum, averaging 1.9 goals per game. Naoki Soma’s men cannot be more different with an average match witnessing 2.6 goals. The recent trend points towards a high scoring fixture, with both sides seeing three or more goals in their last five outings.

Both Teams to Score: Yes

Massimo Ficcadenti have forged an identity for low scoring affairs with a compact defensive line. They have only conceded 10 goals in the J-League campaign, seven of them coming against Kawasaki across two fixtures. The Antlers are not far behind with 13 goals conceded from 12 outings. With Kashima Antlers seeing both teams getting on the scoreboard in three of their last five outings, expect the trend to continue especially with the points on offer in this potential six-point affair.

Nagoya Grampus vs Kashima Antlers Fixture Preview

Nagoya Grampus

Nagoya Grampus saw their title challenge came to an abrupt halt with successive defeats to Kawasaki Frontale. While they lost six points, their rivals put a distance of a similar amount between themselves at the top of the J-League points table. They claimed the three points on offer with a defiant 1-0 win over Cerezo Osaka and will be looking to build on that outing against Kashima Antlers. Their defence got itself counted, keeping a clean sheet and providing the goal through defender Yutaka Yoshida. However, the attacking unit continues to underwhelm with midfielder Sho Inagaki leading the club’s scoring charts with four efforts.

Kashima Antlers

The record Japanese champions are back among winning ways after a poor start to the season. They are unbeaten in nine competitive outings as caretaker manager Naoki Soma plots a march on the points table and cup glory. Goals have come from across the pitch as their attacking unit continues to evade their responsibilities. Aligning with their recent impressive performances has been the surge in out from 19-year-old Ryotaro Araki. The Japanese midfielder has four goals and two assists to his name, the most in the Antlers squad.
