Player to watch: Yuki Ohashi

The experienced forward is Hiroshima's best scorer in the J1 league so far with eight goals and we can see him improving his tally against Kawasaki Frontale too.

Will Ohashi score the first goal?

Five of the seven Ohashi's goals in the league so far were the first goal of the respective matches, so we might see that happen once again this Saturday.
