Kawasaki Frontale vs Eastern – Serie A
Tuesday 9th May 11:30, Kawasaki Todoroki Stadium
Match Preview and Betting Tips
Neither of the two qualification places have been decided yet, and despite sitting 3rd on 7 points tomorrows hosts are the favourites to claim a top two finish as they take on whipping boys Eastern of Hong Kong.
Their are 2 points separating the top three sides and the winner of the Guangzhou Evergrande vs Suwon Bluewings match, if there is one, will claim the top spot in the group.
Tomorrows visitors Eastern have managed one draw and four defeats heading into their final game of the group stage, and being away from home I just can’t see the Hing Kong club taking anything from tomorrows game.
Kawasaki Frontale have not yet lost in this seasons AFC Champions League, and head into the match in good form after two wins, three draws and just one defeat from their last six in all competitions.
My money simply has to go on a home win and over 3.5 goals, as Eastern have been shipping goals in at the wrong end in the AFC Champions League. Kobayashi has netted 2 goals in this competition already and that makes the Japanese attacker a great choice for first goalscorer tomorrow.

Kawasaki Frontale vs Eastern Stats
When these sides met on the 1st March it was the first time the sides had ever played each other, and the match was full of incident.
Eastern picked up their one and only point of the group stage so far, as Kawasaki ended the game with 9-men. Nara saw red in the 13th minute and Manuel Bleda tucked away the resulting penalty to put Eastern into a surprise lead.
Itakura equalised in the second half and it then appeared as if the 10-man away side were going to go on and win the game, but in stoppage time Brazilian Rhayner was sent-off and Frontale were down to 9-men and had to settle for a point.
