Kashiwa vs Kashima: on whom to bet?
Kashiwa - Kashima. Prediction for the Japanese Championship match (July 11, 2021)
Within the framework of the 22nd round of the Japanese J-1 League, a meeting between "Kashiwa" and "Kashima" will take place on Jule 11. Will the favorite continue the unbeaten run, or will an outsider in need of points find something to surprise his opponent with? Read about it in our forecast.
"Kashiwa" may find itself in the relegation zone in the near future, since recent matches clearly do not give the fans of the team optimism in this regard. Wards of Nelson Baptista only achieved a victory in the round before last, which had to wait for two months in the championship. Competitors took advantage of the team's frequent misfires and dropped it to sixteenth place. In addition, in terms of lost points, the club is bypassed by both "Vegalta Sendai" and "Gamba", which further complicates the current situation.
The culmination of the setbacks was the defeat a few days earlier in the Japanese Cup, where "Kashiwa" managed to lose to "Kyoto" at home, which plays in the second-strongest Japanese division. Actually, if you really cannot defeat such an opponent, then you should not be surprised at failures at the highest level.
Upcoming Predictions for Football
"Kashima" remain undefeated this summer, with a seven-game unbeaten streak under their belt. The team under the leadership of Naoki Soma could have won them all at all, but they could not do without stupid spectacle losses. Today's guests lost four points at once in the matches against "Vegalta Sendai" (1:1) and "Oita" (0:0). As a result, the challenger to the Champions League is only seventh so far, but could have been fifth, lagging behind the top three by only one point instead of the existing five.
It is important that "Kashima" managed to avoid excesses in the Japanese Cup, reaching the 1/8 finals thanks to a 3:0 victory over "Tochigi".
Considering what an underdog looks like in fights against clubs of a lower class, you should definitely not expect a miracle from them. In addition, the statistics speaks against them: the last victory over "Kashima" with native fans took place back in September 2016.
Our prediction is that "Kashima" will win with a handicap (0) with the odds of 1.62 on 1xbet.
