Both Teams To Score Prediction: Yes
The teams played a bunch of games this season – this will be the fifth time they face each other in all of the Japanese tournaments – three out of the four times this season had both teams scoring and over 2.5 goals. We expect the same from this final fixture of the season – Gamba Osaka will give us their best and their form right now is good, while Kashima Antlers always beat them and play well against Gamba.
Total Goals Prediction: Over 2.5 Goals
As mentioned above, most games between these two teams end with huge scorelines and it happened three times out of four this season. The fourth game had only two goals. But in the other three, there were at least four in each. Kashima are in their worst form of the season but Gamba Osaka are one of their favorite opponents and they beat them on multiple occasions over the past years, including four times this season.
Correct Score Prediction: 3:2 to Kashima Antlers
Gamba Osaka won their last two games in the league, including one against the future champions. However, Kashima Antlers are their most difficult rival in the entire league and they already lost to them four times this season alone. Even though Kashima have nothing to fight for, the team will try its best to finish in 4th place and to do that, they need the win. We expect a huge scoreline and a win for Kashima.
