Vissel Kobe to Win
Both Vissel Kobe and Urawa Reds have accumulated 28 points in Japanese top-flight football. While the Diamonds are unbeaten in their last seven competitive outings, Vissel record is tainted across the same period with two defeats to their name. However, it is the hosts who have the better goal difference and have shown their pedigree in keeping damage to a minimum. Moreover, Vissel Kobe is unbeaten in six home fixtures and should be able to see off the challenge of the Urawa Red.
Total Goals Under 2.5
The Urawa Reds have scored fourteen goals in their last six matches. At the same time, Vissel Kobe have sent seven strikes past the opposition goalkeeper. However, only two of these fixtures saw more than three goals. The statistics favour the Under 2.5 prediction, with just one match seeing three or more goals from seventeen home fixtures. The last H2H match ended with a 0-1 and that trend should continue as these sides face off each other.
Both Teams to Score: No
Out of the eight fixtures played at the Noevir Stadium, seven have seen clean sheets for the participants. The statistics read six in ten for Urawa Reds away fixtures. The last H2H meeting also seeing just one side get on the scoreboard. With both sides likely cautious in the first leg of this knockout affair, it looks unlikely that both sides will trouble the scorers in a low scoring affair.
Vissel Kobe vs Urawa Reds Fixture Preview
Atsuhiro Miura’s men have given a good account of their abilities in this J1 League season, moving up the points table with every passing fixture. They do not have the possibility of making a run for the title as Kawasaki Frontale look to defend their status, cup competitions are their only solace for silverware. Andres Iniesta and Co. have enough quality to make it to the final rounds of the competition and it will come down to fortune at that stage.
The Urawa Reds have been punching above their weight in the Japanese top-flight football this season. They managed to finish just inside the top half of the table last campaign and have the seventh place to their name after 17 matchdays. Improved standing at the league table will not be enough for their boisterous fans, who expect more from them in the cup lottery. Kasper Junker have impressed this campaign with five goals in as many appearances following his move from Bodo/Glimt, and his goals will be welcomes in the YBC Levian Cup.
