Since their 2-1 away win over Vissel Kobe on August 8, Vegalta Sendai have endured a five-match winless run and face another tricky away test against Kashima Antlers.

Wednesday's hosts are ten points and six places above them in the J.League standings, although they've played two fewer matches. It's important for Takashi Kiyama's side to respond accordingly as inconsistent results have hurt their ability to achieve continuity.

It's still early days as far as the campaign is concerned but after an 11th-placed finish last term, it's difficult seeing them surpass that feat unless they can perform against better opposition. Read my match preview, for the correct score predictions and best betting tips ahead of this fixture.

Kashima Antlers vs Vegalta Sendai Betting Tips

It's likely Vegalta will shake up their team selection here after a heavy 4-1 defeat last time out against Gamba Osaka.

Japanese winger Takuma Nishimura (on-loan from CSKA Moscow) came into the fold and started but was largely disappointing. The 23-year-old lost possession 15 times, committed three fouls and won just four of 11 duels contested.

It didn't help matters that he had a penalty saved on the stroke of half-time either, which would have made it 2-2 heading into the break. With that in mind, it's likely experienced winger Takayoshi Ishihara and centre-back Simao Mate will be recalled to the starting eleven for the visitors.

Kashima Antlers have only gone scoreless in one of their last eleven games, speaking volumes for their creative capabilities. After a three-match winless run of their own, Kashima Antlers have won three straight and target four successive victories for the first time in over a year.

Kashima Antlers vs Vegalta Sendai Correct Score Predictions

The H2H record between these two rather speaks volumes. Kashima have won 12 of their 18 meetings against Wednesday's visitors, who have conceded eight in their last three matches. That's not a good sign and it'd be wise for their coaching staff to make players aware of those statistics as a motivational tool.

However, I'm confident that Kashima Antlers have enough quality and importantly, are in good spirits, which should stand them in good stead en route to victory here.
