Albirex Niigata vs Urawa Reds by Alexis1016
Albirex Niigata was trashed in the last game by Kashiwa Reysol, 0-3, away for game. Obviously, the home side from now didn't played great in that game despite the fact they used a strong line-up and only an important player was rested, the joint top scorer, Kengo Kawamata, who played in the second half. Important right-back Kim Jin-Su is on international duty and he will miss this game.
On the other hand, Urawa didn't played in midweek and I don't see why they will not play with a strong line-up, especially as the J-League has a break. An important absence for Urawa, the first goalie Shusaku Nishikawa is on international duty, he was impressive so far, but I don't think this will affect so much the excellent game made by Urawa lately. The Brazilian playmaker Marcio Richardes it's a long-term injury.
It's true that Urawa had some problems in the goal in the final of the last season with Nobuhiro Kato between the posts. It's clear he hasn't the value of Nishikawa, but he's an experienced goalkeeper and he has a lot of matches played for Urawa since 2011. Urawa it's the better side here, they are more fresh than Albirex and they have decent chances to win this game.
