Kawasaki Frontale vs Kashima Antlers (By: Bogdan)
Today in Kawasaki, very close to Tokyo, Frontale will play against Kashima Antlers in the semifinals of the Nabisco Cup, the J League Cup.
The winner will play in Copa Sudamericana Championship, next summer so the importance of the competition is huge for Japanese teams that are keen to make performances.
Home side has 4 times reached the final stage of the Levain Cup (teh other name of Nabisco Cup).
Antlers have been winners 6 time and runners up 3 times, last time winners in 2015.
The second leg will be played in 2 weeks from now.
With Kashima leading the J League, so qualified for the Champions League in Asia, Kawasaki will want to take this opportunity as they are 4th with 5 points till 3rd spot, Yokohama Marinos, which is on last spot of Champiosn League. Will be hard, of course.
At home in J League, Kawasaki has won just 4 times this season and made 9 draws, while Kashima has won 6 times away and made 4 draws.
Last year in same competition Antlers won here 3-1 after a 1-1 draw at home. It was one of the rare wins here for Antlers as they lost 12 and made 4 draws from a total of 21 matches played in Kawasaki.
I do see a match with both sides scoring! I rate this bet with high chances of winning so I am going with maximum stake.
