0-2 - Won
In round 12 of the J league Jubilo Iwata hosts Kashiwa Reysol. The hosts are placed 10`th on the table with 15 points while the visitors are fourth with 21 points.
Iwata has has a quite ordinary season so far with 4-3-4 till now but it is a solid start for them as they were promoted again last year and had a very poor second part of the season. At home Jubilo is 2-1-2 and are yet to impose themselves. They have no big names in the team besides the aging Nakamura with 38 already on his back. And they depend on him quite a lot as the main midfielder that also scored 2 goals. Another important midfielder Yamamoto is injured as are Fujita, Yoshiaki, Ota, Koki(japan U20).
Kashiwa is having one of their better seasons and have 7-0-4 so far. At home things don`t look that good and the team has delivered most of the points on the travels. Their style is better suited for the road it seems. Kashiwa has a few prominent players in the attack like the Brazilian duo of Cristiano and Diego Oliveira with Ramon Lopez also added this season. In midfield Otani and Nakagawa are making things happen for Reysol.
Kashiwa is 5-0-1 away from home with 11:5 goal difference. They have some notable wins away with the last one being against strong Tokyo 1:2.
I think the visitors are much closer to taking the 3 points today.
