Player to watch: Anderson Lopes

Anderson Lopes put up a solid performance the last time these teams met, as his two goals were enough to claim all three points for Yokohama FM. He was also the Player of the Match last week, contributing three goals in his team's 4-0 win against Kashiwa Reysol.

Lopes has now scored nine times in the J League with one assist. He'll fancy his chances against Kashima Antlers.
