Time: 12:05 (GMT+8) on October 26th

Venue: Saitama Stadium 2002, Saitama

‎‎Competition: J League Cup final

This weekend, Consadole Sapporo will play the J.League Cup final against Kawasaki Frontale. This can be considered as the salvation of this team for a bad season because they are currently ranked 8th in the J1.League and it is difficult to re-establish their achievements to the top 4 like last season.

Although star Chanathip Songkrasin is injured and unable to attend, but Siam Sport of Thailand still pays great attention to the upcoming match. The newspaper expects Consadole Sapporo to be able to win the J.League Cup, thereby giving Chanathip the opportunity to attend the special match of Japanese football.

"On October 26th, Consadole Sapporo and Kawasaki Frontale will encounter in the J.League Cup final. The champion team will win prize money of up to 150 million yen (nearly US $ 1.4 million), while the runner-up will receive 50 million yen (more than 460 thousand USD).

In addition, the J.League Cup champion will also be entitled to play the Intercontinental Super Cup match with South American Copa Sudamericana 2019 champions. The opponent of the Japanese representative will be the winner of the match between Atlético Colón (Argentina) and Independiente del Valle (Ecuador) on November 10th.

Notably, the J.League YBC Levain Cup / CONMEBOL Sudamericana Championship Final 2020, the J. League YBC Levain Cup has not yet been set a fixed time and venue", the Siam Sport newspaper wrote.

In fact, the aforementioned Super Cup has been held annually since 2008 between the  J.League Cup and the Copa Sudamericana winner (the tournament for South American clubs which has the level similar to the UEFA Europa League). If this Super Cup is kept up the tradition like the previous years, this match will be held in the summer of 2020.

Despite missing the 2019 J.League Cup final because of a thigh injury, when Consadole Sapporo won the J.League Cup, Chanathip Songkrasin will have the opportunity to become the first Thai player to attend the intercontinental Super Cup between Japan and South America.

This season, Chanathip is still in good form in the club shirt when he has played 23 matches, scored 4 goals and has 7 assists.
