Sanfrecce Hiroshima vs Kashima Antlers Prediction

Kashima had the home advantage the previous day, but they failed in utilizing it against Kawasaki. The top-performing visitors posted three points on the board, as a result of their two unanswered goals in the second half.

Hiroshima faced a loss against this same opposition as well. They had been trailing for a long time in the match, for which they were on the road. Though they had equalized in the 82nd minute, the hosts once again took the lead and held it till the end.

As things stand, consider that both teams are placed in the top tier of the table, and disregarding their respective losses against Kawasaki, had been on unbeaten runs. Moreover, most of their h2h clashes, especially the ones at this stadium, have had goals at either end of the pitch. In addition, Hiroshima found the back of the net in 12 of their last 13 home fixtures, while their counterparts did the same in 11 of their last 12 on the road.

Likely, BTTS looks promising this Sunday.

In regards to result, the home advantage will play a role, and so will the fact that the Antlers are winless in their former two road trips. Count in their recent unsatisfactory performances in h2h clashes, and Hiroshima looks the favorite to at least avoid the loss.
