The first possible outcome in this J-League fixture is goals on both ends.

The hosts have been phenomenal in recent home games against Vissel Kobe. Despite registering home victory in the first two home games so far, we expect the hosts to be on the score sheet. Kobe has struggled away from home and could be on the chopping board in this trip to Shizuoka.
