Kashima Antlers to Win

After impressing in the first exchanges of the 2020/21 J1 League campaign, Sagan Tosu have fallen flat on their faces. They are winless in four matches and enter the fixture on the back of a spineless 4-1 defeat to Avispa Fukuoka. On the other hand, Kashima Antlers have been on a tear recently. They are unbeaten in their last eight competitive fixtures, six on the road. With Sagan struggling at home, they should make it an impressive seven on May 22.

Total Goals Under 2.5

Kashima’s impressive away form has seen them keep damage to a minimal. Consequently, only three fixtures out of their last six have seen three or more goals. Sagan’s home form has been more cautious, with just one fixture seeing the Over 2.5 come to fruition. With the hosts conceding a league low six goals in fifteen outings, expect a low scoring affair.

Both Teams to Score: No

Kim Myung-hwi’s Sagan do just enough to take the lead and then soak up the pressure as their opponents try in vain. Kashima Antlers are the form side in the Japanses top-flight football, scoring 14 and conceding four in their last five matches. Sagan are not far behind with seven goals scored and three conceded. With the defences of both sides cancelling each other out, this top-four affair will be contentious without much action in the final third.

Sagan Tosu vs Kashima Antlers Fixture Preview

Sagan Tosu

After finishing last campaign in the 13th place, Sagan Tosu are flying high. Kim Myung-hwi has led his team to the AFC Champions League qualification slots on the back of impervious defence. They have silenced anyone who has dared to come in their path. However, they have found it difficult to keep it up on the other end of the pitch. Sagan have scored a miserly 1.33 goals in their 15 J1 League matches. They need to start scoring or else draws will turn into defeats.

Kashima Antlers

After struggling in their initial phases, Kashima Antlers are back in the top-half of the J1 League points table. With 13 points accumulated from the available 15. With three successive wins on the road, they are the form team in the Japanese top-flight football. They have addressed their defensive issues and should be able to embark on an assault at podium places. Their rise has put additional spotlight on young Ryotaro Araki. The 19-year-old midfielder is the Antlers top-scorer with five goals and three assists.
