Kashiwa Reysol are in danger of bowing out in the group stages unless they can really pick their form up now. They have just one point so far in two games but should get their first win against the group whip boys Kitchee. Their 1-1 draw with Tianjin Quanjian was not a bad result but they would have been disappointed with their defeat at Jeonbuk after leading 2-0 at half time and must feel they should have at least gotten a point from the game. They are two games into their league season and have a win and a loss so far but should be confident of a win in this game.
Kitchee have two losses from as many games with nine conceded and none scored. They look like they will bow out of the competition in the group stages as the bigger teams locks horns for the continents finest prize. They were beaten 3-0 at Tianjin Quanjian and then lost 6-0 at home to Jeonbuk which leaves them with an almost impossible task of qualifying from this group.
I fancy the hosts to win this game by a lot as they may need the goals difference as the other teams have already scored a few past this opponent. I think they will also get in on the party but I am going for first half goals here, The visitors seem to start games badly as eight of the nine goals they have conceded in this competition have come in the first half time. As such I like the look of over 1.5 goals in half time.
