KAW Vs VIS Dream 11 prediction: League leaders Kawasaki on a rampage to hold a runaway lead at the halfway mark in the league.
After a slight stumble in their season across the last month, Kawasaki Frontale have restored regular service. With two wins on the bounce, the club finds itself sitting in first place of J1 League 2020-21, ahead of second spot by a solid eight points.
Its not just that margin which sees them be serenaded with the title of outright monikers though at the moment. The club has absolutely torched its way to top spot with a gargantuan 44 points, a side which has spared no expense in quenching its insatiable appetite for goals.
For 10th placed Kobe, this is an oppsotion which is bound to give the club cold feet even before they step out onto the pitch. Although the side is currently unbeaten in four successive outings, three of them have been despondent draws, performances which hardly inspire confidence in the side’s raucous supporters ahead of the day’s scrimmage.
This is a foregone conclusion even before minute one gets underway. While Kobe will thrust everything they have into defence as they try to stave Kawasaki, the burnt of the table toppers is just too much, one which will give the side’s its third win in a row today.
