GK: Masaaki Murakami
DEF: Gotoku Sakai, Tatsuki Nara, Douglas Grolli, Naoki Wako
MID: Hotaru Yagamuchi, Andres Iniesta, Sergi Samper, Jordy Croux
FW: Kyogo Furuhashi, Bruno Mendes
Kyogo Furuhashi: Furuhashi is in an amazing run of form in terms of goals. He has found the back of the net on 9 occassions in the 17 games player so far. He has also created a goal and will lead the Vissel Kobe attacking line-up.
Bruno Mendes: Mendes has scored 5 goals so far in the current season in 13 games and he is an excellent finisher of the ball.
Andres Iniesta: Iniesta will marshall the Vissel Kobe midfield. He will be tasked with creating openings upfront and is expected to be the defining factor between the two teams.
Both teams have been defensively resolute and there is a chance that the game will not be a high scoring game, putting the likes of Tatsuki Nara and Naoki Wako as possible performers in terms of points earned.
Both teams will hope to return back to winning ways in the J-League after their Emperor’s Cup success. They are separated by a single point in the league standings and will play out a toughly contested game and a draw looks like the likeliest outcome.
