At the end of the season, “Oita” never found stability in the game. Yes, Katanosaki’s wards managed to snatch victory in Yokohama, scoring the decisive goal in added time by the referee. However, in the match against Kawasaki, such maneuvers will not work, and you need to build the game from defense. Moreover, “Oita” has serious problems with offense: 1 goal in 4 home games. I doubt that the local “Trinita” will make significant progress in attack against the leader of the championship.
Kawasaki proved their worth as the championship leader by beating the current title holder, Yokohama Mariners. The current guests responded with deeds to all critics of their dissatisfaction with the current results. I expect another winning streak from Kawasaki. It is obvious to me that the game crisis was not even brewing for the home team, and Onika’s team was simply preparing for the final battle for the championship.
Forecast for the match Oita Trinita – Kawasaki Frontale
For “Kawasaki Frontale” everything in this championship has already been decided: the home team has issued an early championship and can now play for fun. As for the visiting team, Trinity also does not need anything in the remaining matches. Of course, it will be very honorable to beat the newly minted title holder, and the underdog will certainly risk it in favor of attacking actions. In other words, both teams are not under the burden of responsibility for the result, and we have the right to wait for a productive match. For me the success of “Oita” will not be a sensation either. Still, the tournament value of this meeting has completely disappeared, which means that there will not be much attention in defense.
