Looking at these two teams, we feel that Zweigen Kanazawa could find themselves up against it to hit the back of the net against this Albirex Niigata side who we reckon should be able to get on the scoresheet themselves in a winning performance.
Our tip is therefore for a good battle with a 0-1 win for Albirex Niigata at the end of the match.
Should be a close one.
