Consadole Sapporo vs Shimizu S-Pulse: Top Free Betting Tips
Shimizu S-Pulse have one final chance to save themselves from relegation while Hokkaido Consadole Sapporo have nothing to fight for. Here are our predictions.
Both Teams To Score Prediction: Yes
This is one of our favorite fixtures in Japan to bet on this market because these two teams always produce great games with a lot of goals. Four out of the last five games between them ended with both teams scoring goals. Shimizu S-Pulse are the weaker team but they will be extremely motivated to win this and we have no doubts that they will score. On the other end, Hokkaido are in their best form of the season and will also net one at least.
Match Result Prediction: Draw
We think that this game will not have a winner and Shimizu S-Pulse will unfortunately get relegated this time. Their form is terrible and we do not see how they could win this unless Hokkaido Consadole Sapporo allow them to. The home team is in a good form and won three out of their last four home games in the league. The maximum we anticipate for the visitors is a draw.
Correct Score Prediction: 2:2 Draw
The 1:1 scoreline is of course a better option when it comes to chance but we anticipate a bigger scoreline. Shimizu S-Pulse will fight until the final whistle and if the game reaches 1:1, it will not end that way – there will be more goals in this game than that. And since the hosts are the better team and a solid host nowadays, we expect more than one from them too.
Consadole Sapporo vs Shimizu S-Pulse: Form, Recent Games, and News
Hokkaido Consadole Sapporo Preview
We expected more from Hokkaido Consadole Sapporo this season and they only became good in the final few weeks of the season. Before that, they were much closer to the relegation zone than to the top. The problem has always been the defense – Consadole have the second weakest defense in the league despite the fact that they may even finish in the upper half of the table. Their goal difference is 41:52.
Shimizu S-Pulse Preview
We believe that Shimizu's time has come and the team will get relegated this season after escaping relegation for multiple years in a row. They were one point away from going down last season and we think that they will be one point away from saving themselves this season. Curiously enough, the team has a better goal difference than Consadole Sapporo – 41:50.
