Kashima Antlers vs Guangzhou Evergrande match information (0-0 on the first leg)

Time: 18:00 (GMT+8) on September 18th

Venue: Kashima Soccer Stadium

Competition: Second leg of AFC Champions League 2019 quarter-final

The first leg more than half a month ago, though Kashima Antlers was much underestimated, but excellently held the big team Guangzhou Evergrande without a goal. This means that, if Kashima Antlers want to win tickets to the quarterfinals, their task is to have to win the match this afternoon.

The current form of Kashima Antlers is quite stable with a series of 9 consecutive games without losing, of which winning 6 and only 3 draws. The spirit of the home team is also very impressive when they last won 2-0 against FC Tokyo, the main opponent in the race to the J-League championship.

It should also be emphasized that in this match, Kashima Antlers have the advantage of being played at home, where this team is very well prepared with a 14-match unbeaten sequence, including up to 11 victories. If calculated further, Kashima Antlers have only lost 2/20 matches in their home field. At the AFC Champions League, the Japanese team also won 4/5 home matches from the beginning of the season.

On the opposite side, Guangzhou Evergrande is at the top of the table in the Super League. They made quite a distance from the team that was ranked 2nd so even though the last two rounds, coach Fabio Cannavaro and his players could not win, they still created a gap of 4 points more. Perhaps the policy of the Italian strategist is to give the team the highest concentration for this afternoon's game.

The difficulty for Guangzhou Evergrande is their unconvincing confrontation in the away visits to Kashima Antlers when they have lost the last 2 times.
