Kawasaki Frontale and Chelsea go head-to-head at the Nissan Stadium in Yokohama that sees the two teams looking to maintain a promising form. Both sides have had identical returns from their last five games (W3, D2), and both come into this meeting off the back of commanding victories that have seen them beat their rivals to nil.
An impressive run of form has seen the Japanese side rack up a 16-game unbeaten run (W10, D6). Interestingly, seven of those wins have seen them beat their rivals to nil, while six of those seven stalemates seen both teams score. Just two of Kawasaki’s last seven games have produced over 2.5 goals, with Toru Oniki’s men conceding one goal or less across all of those matches. However, they have scored under 1.5 goals per match five times in the same sequence, finding the back of the net in the first half on four occasions along the way.
Meanwhile, Franck Lampard has registered his first triumph as Chelsea manager in a commanding 4-0 win over the Irish outfit St. Patricks Athletic. It was Lampard’s second game in charge following a disappointing 1-1 draw with Bohemians. Still, the Blues are now on an 11-game unbeaten run (W5, D6), with four of those draws ending with the same 1-1 scoreline. Notably, all five of the Pensioners wins across the past few months have seen them score three or more goals, beating their opponents to nil three times though.
