The J1 League is back in action with another round of matches this week as Kawasaki Frontale take on Cerezo Osaka on Wednesday.

Both teams can pack a punch on their day and will be determined to win this game.

Cerezo Osaka are in fourth place in the J1 League standings and have been fairly impressive so far this season. The hosts eased past Avispa Fukuoka by a 2-0 scoreline in their previous game and will look to achieve a similar result this week.

Kawasaki Frontale, on the other hand, are in fifth place in the league table at the moment and have been inconsistent so far. The away side suffered a 3-1 defeat at the hands of Urawa Reds last week and will need to bounce back in this fixture.
