The leaders are under pressure, from all the candidates for the tittle. They get the first place thanks to Gamba’s miss in the derby match against Nagoya. Now is coming the most difficult part, to keep that first place. Only 4 rounds left in the league and all the matches at home must be perfect and from home matches to gain full 3 points. One of those match is this against weeknesses teams like Niigata. Visitors matematicly are still without sure place in the league but they have 8 more points from the team who is in the relegation zone. Niigata finaly breaked the bad run with 3 straight wins. Poor performance like visitors, one of the worst. Even they are in good form, I’m not expecting how they will find solution for the leader who is in great form, 6 wins in the last 7 games. Second best home team in the league, also extra motivated before the match knowing that there is no space for mistakes. They won the first meeting in this season with 3:2, for this one I’m expecting also a win but with two goals difference. Why? Kashiwa is still without home win against Niigata, 0-3-2 in 5 played matches, they know the importance of this match, also the critical moments are part from the best teams. So, I expect, the leader to react in best way, getting all three points here, sharing who is the boss on their picth and to break the bad tradion.
Good luck !
