The last time Kawasaki Frontale bagged a win at Kashiwa Reysol's Hitachi Kashiwa Stadium was in 2009. On the 18th game week of the season, Kawasaki will have a chance to stop that curse.

Support from teammates is also needed, to get the result that they want. Match is on August 2, 18:00(GMT+8).
Häcken are set to visit Norrkoping on August 2 at 22:00 (GMT+8). Häcken appear to have mastery of Norrkoping when they host the game.

But the last time Häcken visited Norrkoping, they lost via a 4-2 scoreline. Will the home team prevail again, or will the visitors assert their might?
