In a top-of-the-table clash, Kawasaki Frontale invite Kashiwa Reysol to the Kawasaki Todoroki Stadium in J1 League action on Saturday.

The hosts lost pole position in the table following a 1-1 draw against Jubilo Iwata in their previous league outing on Wednesday. The visiting side extended their unbeaten run in the league to four games with a 1-0 away win at Cerezo Osaka.

The narrow win helped them leapfrog Yokohama FM in the league standings, who suffered a 2-0 loss in their midweek fixture against Sanfrecce. After this league game, the hosts will kick-start their AFC Champions League campaign next Friday while Kashiwa will be in action in the J League Cup on Wednesday.

Kawasaki Frontale vs Kashiwa Reysol Prediction

Azzurro Nero have the best goalscoring record in the league at the moment, but their 14 goals have come in nine league games, two more than the visitors. On the other hand, only sixth-placed Sagan Tosu (2) have conceded fewer goals than Kashiwa (3) this season.

Though recent records suggest that the hosts should come out on top here, the visitors are in great form at the moment. We see this game as a closely contested affair, which should end in a low-scoring draw.

Prediction: Kawasaki Frontale 1-1 Kashiwa Reysol
