Kawasaki Frontale have found their best form of the season of late, winning three straight to climb up to sixth place. Now, they try to keep their terrific play going when they travel to F.C.Tokyo for Friday Night J.League at 7:30 pm JST in a match that will be streamed live on the J.League International YouTube channel.
Frontale’s slow start to the season is in the rearview, as they’ve begun racking up points. Not only have they won three in a row, but they’ve gone four in a row unbeaten. The defense, which had been great for years only to stumble early in the campaign, is back to shutting down opposing signs with a mere one goal conceded during their winning streak.
After sinking as low as 15th place, Frontale are now sniffing the upper reaches of the table. They can enter the top five this weekend, which is where F.C.Tokyo were at one point this season.
FCT took points from four of their first five matches, giving them a bright spot and a lofty ranking, but they’ve dipped lately and will be hoping to regain their early season form. That will start at the back, where the hope is Masato Morishige can help guide a more organized and composed defense.
The J.League announced that up to four matches will be streamed live each week for the 2023 season, bringing one of Asia’s top league’s to fans around the world. The streams will be free to view on the J.League International YouTube channel in any country that does not have an existing rights agreement.
