MID: Marcos Junior, Takahiro Ogihara, Sachiro Toshima, Yusuke Segawa
FW: Daizen Maeda, Ado Onaiwu
Ado Onaiwu: The Japanese born striker has netted 10 goals so far in the J1 League for Reysol. Onaiwu has combined well with his midfielder partner Onaiwu in most of his goals. Onaiwu likes to stay at the end of the pitch and has a knack for being at the right place at the right time.
Marcos Junior: The Brazilian winger is very quick with the ball on his feet and likes to play one-touch football. He has scored 3 goals so far in the J1 League and has also made 2 assists. Junior is a proficient dribbler of the ball and will cause problems to the Reysol defence.
Yusuke Segawa: Kashiwa Reysol will depend on the versatility of Segawa in the midfield and attacking areas. Segawa usually plays a left midfielder but can go upfront as a left winger as well. At times, Segawa has also played as the central striker.
First to Score: Ado Onaiwu is in a fine run of form and should open the scoring first. Onaiwu has a sturdy physique which goes a long way in Asian leagues.
Clean sheets: Both teams have been economical when it comes to goals conceded, while Yokohama have managed to score goals against the teams, Reysol have some massive scoring problems. They have only managed to net 19 goals in 20 games so far, hence Yokohama have the larger chance of getting a clean sheet on Saturday.
Yokohama FM are on a high flying run of results. They are pushing for the league title and will come into the game as firm favourites against relegation battlers Kashiwa Reysol.
