Having triumphed at their one of the past 5 games of the season, Kashiwa Reysol have since gone on to lose eight of their next ten matches at the top table of the J1 League. Sanfrecce Hiroshima, by way of contrast, have enjoyed 13 wins in their previous 20 home games at this level, so the club from the capital will be confident of putting J1 League bottom side to the sword.
This Sanfrecce Hiroshima side is not exactly renowned for playing exciting football, with a staggering 14 of their previous 17 matches in the J1 League delivering no more than a couple of goals. High-flying Kashiwa Reysol have followed a similar pattern in the top-flight recently, as nine of Sanfrecce Hiroshima outfit’s last 12 games have also served up under 2.5 goals.
Witnessing goals at both ends has been pretty uncommon in recent Sanfrecce Hiroshima home matches in the second tier, with just four of their last 20 contests being devoid of any clean sheets. Given that both teams have scored in only two of the ten away games played by Kashiwa Reysol so far this season, it is hard to see that pattern changing here.
Sanfrecce Hiroshima vs Kashiwa Reysol Prediction
Kashiwa Reysol have not been the most entertaining of sides to watch recently, as seven of their previous ten matches in the J1 League have served up no more than a couple of successful strikes. Under 2.5 goals has also been the order of the day in five consecutive Sanfrecce Hiroshima home games at this level, with the net bulging just four times across these contests.
