Kawasaki Frontale to Win First Half
Round 1 of Group I fixtures saw Beijing Guoan record a 1-1 draw with United City, while Kawasaki Frontale were involved in a thrilling 3-2 win over Daegu FC. There is little to look beyond J1 League leaders who have been in exceptional form and remain unbeaten across all competitions this season. We expect them to start the match with high intensity and put Beijing Guoan on the back foot from the start. They should be able to take the lead in the first half and power through Guoan's defences to a likely victory.
Total Goals: Over 1.5
The confidence in Kawasaki Frontale's chances stems from their ability to pierce through opposition backlines. In Leandro Damiao and Yu Kobayashi, they have two strikers who are scoring goals with ruthless ambition. The Brazilian is leading the club's scoring charts with 12 strikes to his name, while Kobayashi is trailing him with nine goals. This should be a high scoring affair where Kawasaki Frontale dominates the tempo, especially in the second half. During their win over Daegu, there were three goals in the second period and we expect a similar result this time around.
Both Teams to Score: No
The designated hosts, Beijing Guoan have already conceded five times in their four Chinese Super League fixtures. Meanwhile, Kawasaki Frontale have only conceded fifteen times from twenty J1 League outings. They have kept all and sundry at bay, and Toru Oniki will have a similar agenda on his minds against Beijing in this fixture.
Beijing Guoan vs Kawasaki Frontale: Team News and Match Preview
The Imperial Guards are struggling to find the form that saw them finish third in the Chinese Super League last season. The goals have dried up and opposition has found it easy to circumvent their defences. If they are to maintain ambitions of progressing to the knockout rounds of the AFC Champions League, they will have to overhaul their complete image. In the attacking department, all hopes will be on Congolese forward, Cedric Bakambu to lead their charge and ensure the Chinese outfit are competitive against their much-fancied rivals.
The Azzurro Nero have established themselves as the envy of the J1 League. With three domestic titles in four years, and well on their way for a fourth one, the only thing missing is a continental trophy that cements their reputation. Toru Oniki will have explicit orders of ensuring this in the same fashion they have taken the Japanese top-flight football by storm. Their defensive performances have shown they are capable of holding off anyone, while the likes of Leandro Damiao and Yu Kobayashi complete the job in the opposition's final third.
