Nagoya Grampus Eight vs Kashiwa Reysol Match preview

Nagoya Grampus has exhibited an unbeaten streak in the campaign so far after 6 appearances. They also have a two-point lead over the visitors in the table.

The host is on a three-game winning streak in the league, following a 0-3 away win against Oita last time out in their schedule.

Grampus had two attempts at home in the campaign so far. Their opening home match with G-Osaka ended in a 22-2 draw and later they defeated Sagan Tosu with a 1-0 scoreline.

On the contrary, Kashiwa started their away record with a 3-1 loss against Kawasaki. But their last encounter on the road against Urawa turned out to be a success with a 0-4 scoreline.

Reysol has suffered three consecutive losses at the start of the new edition. Besides, it is too soon to tell on their form in the top tier.

They will visit on the back of a 5-1 win at home against Vegalta Sendai in their previous league clash.

Nagoya Grampus Eight vs Kashiwa Reysol Head-to-head (h2h)

  • The visitor has recorded three of the last five overall wins.
  • Their most recent clash in 2018 was a 0-1 away win for Grampus.

Nagoya Grampus Eight vs Kashiwa Reysol Prediction

The 0-1 away win for Grampus in their last h2h meeting with the visitor in 2018 was not so far away and considering the host has the home ground advantage now gives them more space in the middle.

Besides, the return of Kashiwa in the top tier saw the visitors taking back-to-back losses against the teams above them in the league table as it stands.

The home win in full-time will probably be the best bet for the punters based on their overall form in the campaign and recent h2h history.

Furthermore, Kashiwa has had little luck with their tours to this venue, but they have given away only two clean sheets in their last five visits. So, BTTS will be a suitable option for the punters.
