THE PREDICTION

This is a huge game. With just one game to go in the group stage, three points separate the two at the top-of-the-group. Kitchee are three points behind Cerezo Osaka and a Kitchee victory would leapfrog the Japanese side and they would automatically qualify with the other side having to wait to see if they are one of the best runners up. Cerezo Osaka have been unbeaten in their five matches with four wins and a draw and the 2-1 win in the first match between these two will stand the Japanese side in good stead. This should be a close match and both teams will be confident of getting on the score sheet.
