Albirex Niigata Preview
After a few setbacks, Albirex Niigata was able to rejoin the elite, and the team looked like it deserved to be there. They received direct promotion after finishing the season at the top of the standings.
They had the greatest defence in the league and scored 73 goals in 42 games. We will have to wait and see how they do this year, but with their large fan base, we can hope for the best.
Albirex Niigata had five shots on target when they drew 2-2 with Consadole Sapporo at Denka Big Swan Stadium. Ryotaro Ito and Shusuke Ota found the net during this J1 League match.
Kawasaki Frontale Preview
Everyone anticipated Kawasaki Frontale to win the championship for several years in a row, but they had a terrible start to the previous campaign that essentially eliminated them from contention. Of course, they recovered in the end and still placed second in the league, but it was undoubtedly not a stellar year.
Even though they came in second place, this is Japan’s largest squad, so they will undoubtedly be encouraged to run a better campaign now. They can’t afford to lose any more ground in the domestic competition after such a sluggish start.
Kawasaki Frontale drew against Shonan Bellmare in their last match, in the J1 League clash 1-1. Yusuke Segawa scored in the game at Todoroki Athletics Stadium, with Kawasaki Frontale having two shots on target and they had 54% of possession.
