Sagan Tosu to Win
The long trip south-east will not prove beneficial for Shimizu S-Pulse. They are winless in their last eight competitive outings and have a tough task in overcoming Sagan Tosu, who are looking at a top-four finish. Odds are in favour of the hosts, who have won five of the last six matches at the Ekimae Real Estate Stadium, losing just once and drawing the other.
Total Goals: Over 2.5
S-Pa's most recent trips to the Ekimae Real Estate Stadium panned out as they had hoped for, claiming a win and a draw. While we predict their positive streak against Sagan Tosu will finish in this meeting, and so will remnants of those encounters. Both fixtures concluded with less than three goals on offer and that will not be the case in this meeting on September 11. Both sides have been involved in high scoring affairs in recent weeks and that will be the case in this encounter.
Both Teams to Score: Yes
The last five meetings between Sagan Tosu and Shimizu S-Pulse finished with an Under 2.5 goals scoreline. What is interesting is that on three occasions, both sides did not get represented on the scoreboard. However, both sides are scoring proficiently. S-Pa have breached the opposition backline and scored in nine successive away trips. Barring their 0-4 defeat to Yokohama F. Marinos, Sagan have scored in eight of their previous nine competitive outings.

Kim Myung-hwi will be pleased with Sagan Tosu's position on the points table. They are in fifth place, a point behind Vissel Kobe in third. With 11 matches remaining until the end of the campaign, they can ill afford to drop points, especially with four teams hot on their heels.

Despite getting warnings in the last campaign, S-Pa continues to make the same mistakes and linger in the same neighbourhoods. They are 16th on the points table, with a three-point safety on their hands.
