Kashiwa Reysol vs Urawa Reds by 20legend
This could be one of the best matches in Japan with two of their best teams so far this season. This should be a goalshow.
Kashiwa is the most spesilized team in J-League when it comes to games with over 2.5 goals, as 10 of 11 games have gone over that limit this season. 6 of 11 games have also gone over 3.5 goals. All their six games at home have gone over 2.5 goals and 5 of their 6 games at home have gone over 3.5 goals. Kashiwa have an average 4.2 goals involved at home this season. They have also played the Asian Champions League were they knocked out Jeonbuk Motors last week.
Urwa Reds have started fantastic this season with 7-2-2 in their first 11 games of the season. They have won the two last games with a lot of goals involved both against Kashiwa (3-1 win) and Sagan Tosu (6-2 win). Urwa Red have been okay away with 2-2-1, but three of these games have gone over 2.5 goals.
These meeting have been one of the biggest in Japan over the last years, and the goals have been coming almost every time. The history shows that Kashiwa has 5 wins, two draws and Urwa have won 6 times. 10 of these meetings have gone over 2.5 goals.
When Kashima playing as the home team, they have met 12 times and the statistics show 6 kashiwa wins, 1 draw and 5 Urwa wins. 9 of these 12 meetings have gone over 2.5 goals.
Kashima have one injury as usual, the right back Fujita (7 games), while Urwa got a full squad available.
With a history of making many goals, I think that also this meeting will do that as well. Both of the teams are very offensive in their way of playing, which the history clearly shows. The chance of going over 2.5 goals seems pretty obvious, so I pick over 3.5 goals instead, which should be highly possible here.
