One simular pick too, also motivational. Sendai raise up the form in write time, from team without ambition they came in situation to fight for something. The place in asian CL is the ambition and matematicly they still have chance to gain it. The opponent out of form, only three wins in the last 10 matches, all wins are at home. Sure place in the middle of the ranking and without motivation to make problems. Kashima is a classical home team and here they don’t have nothing to look for. Sendai with extra motivation before the match, the points more important than ever. My call is home win.
Good luck !
