Kashima Antlers to Win
Recent J1 League results of both teams are almost the same as they have three wins and two losses in their last five matches. As they face of against each other, we are tilting towards an away win based on their recent engagements. Kashima Antlers have dominated their meetings with Cerezo Osaka, registering seven times victories and drawing the other. Chances are more for Kashima to claim the points and build their case for AFC Champions League qualification.
Total Goals: Under 2.5
Cerezo Osaka ended their two-match barren streak with their 1-0 win over Sanfrecce Hiroshima. On the other hand, the Kashima Antlers have scored a combined four goals against the tough defences of Kawasaki Frontale and Gamba Osaka. However, they were shut out by Avispa Fukuoka at the start of this period. Both sides are struggling for goals and this has been the case in their H2H encounters. Only once in their last five H2H duels has the total goals gone beyond three goals or more. With all that in mind, this fixture is also likely to be confined to Under 2.5 total goals.
Both Teams to Score: No
The attacking line of Cerezo Osaka has been lagging against Kashima as they have only two goals in the last five meetings. Kashima got three clean sheets in those matches and beat Cerezo in the last match with a 1-0 result. Based on this, we predict that the hosts will be unable to score in this game either and the visitors will take home the points as 0-1 scoreline is repeated.

Kashima Antlers have been able to get on seventh place in the points table but Naoki Soma would be disappointed with the recent results of the team. Kashima has lost four of the last five matches of all competitions and will have to step up to live long in a decent position. The centre-back Bueno and two other players are not available for this match due to fitness issues.
