Vissel Kobe preview: Trying to defend the title

As the reigning champions of Japan, Vissel Kobe were expected to fight for another title and so far, they've been close to this goal. At the moment, Vissel Kobe are fourth in the standings and six points behind league leaders Machida Zelvia, but their recent form and one win in the last six league games is a worrying sign for their title aspirations.

The defending champions will be without injured Mitsuki Saito in this game.

Predicted lineup: Maekwa (GK), Sakai, Yamakawa, Honda, Hatsuse, Yamaguchi, Ogihara, Miyashiro, Muto, Sasaki & Osako

Will Cavric score in the second half?

All six goals that Cavric has scored in the J1 League this season were scored in the second halves of matches. Will that be the case against Vissel Kobe too?
