Kawasaki Frontale take on the visitors Iwata in the round 18 match of Japanese J1 League. The match will be played on Saturday, June 25th at Kawasaki Todoroki Stadium (Kawasaki).
Kawasaki Frontale decided to focus entirely on the domestic championship as they did not look back at the national cup. The defeat from the modest team from the second league at home should not be taken seriously. But the devastating victory over Sapporo in the last round is worth to mention. Moreover, for the first time this season, Kawasaki remembered how it is to score a lot and not worry about defending his own goal. The struggle for the first line continues and it seems that the hosts will definitely become champions once again. One of the negatives is that Kawasaki concedes quite a lot. But can they lose points with one of the outsiders?

Iwata returned to the elite of Japanese football after last season, but it must be said that the team conceded a lot in the second league as well. Iwate are involved in nothing but the struggle for survival. Currently they are on 14th place and only two points from the direct relegation zone and they show disgusting away results. Maybe the visitors decided to focus on the main stages of the national cup, but so far Iwata faced the teams mainly from the lower leagues. Over the last four rounds, Iwata took only one victory.
The visitors are in the top three teams in terms of breaking through the total of 2.5 goals. At the same time, the team has almost no victories. The hosts are gradually starting to gain momentum. In general, Kawasaki alone is able to score three times, although the attack, of course, has noticeably faded compared to last season. We expect that at least three goals will be scored in the match and the hosts will take a victory and continue to fight for the championship.
Prediction for the match: Kawasaki Frontale to win and over 2.5 scored goals in the match.
