Shonan Bellmare realistic ambitions of for the J1 League, with a recent record of six wins in seven home matches providing their bid for a place at the J1 League top table with a real boost. Irrespective of which division they have been operating in, Kashiwa Reysol have struggled on their travels of late, suffering an alarming nine defeats in 12 trips.
Over the course of their previous nine home games at this level, Shonan Bellmare have been involved in just a single fixture that has produced more than two goals. Given that 12 of the last 17 Kashiwa Reysol away matches in the J1 League have also served up under 2.5 goals, including a couple at the home stadium, more of the same should be expected here.
It would be fair to say that Shonan Bellmare have not been the most exciting team to watch recently, with only three of their last 12 J1 League matches producing goals at both ends. Given that ten of the previous 12 Kashiwa Reysol away games at this level have also seen at least one of the two keepers emerging with a clean sheet, do not expect both teams to find the net.
Shonan Bellmare vs Kashiwa Reysol Prediction
At least one of the two goalkeepers has emerged with a clean sheet from 15 of the previous 18 league games involving Kashiwa Reysol, and both of their meetings with Shonan Bellmare last season finished goalless. Speaking of the hosts, eight of their most recent 12 home matches have followed the same pattern, so anyone expecting a thriller is likely to be disappointed by this contest.
