Shimizu S-Pulse vs Iwata: Top Free Betting Tips
Shimizu S-Pulse and Iwata are the current-weakest teams in the Japanese elite and in desperate need for points. Here are our predictions.
Both Teams To Score Prediction: Yes
This could be the final chance for both teams to save themselves from relegation and we definitely expect to see goals from them. Four out of the last five most recent head-to-head games between them ended with both teams scoring goals. Most of them had over 2.5 goals too. Iwata have shown a lot of spirit in recent weeks and scored 2+ goals in three out of their last five games and have a single defeat. Their defense has not improved, so we expect Shimizu To Score too.
Match Result Prediction: Draw
With these teams being the weakest in the league and both in desperate need of the three points, we expect a close game like all between them. The three most recent games they played all ended within one goal difference – no draws. We think that it is time to see that draw. Shimizu S-Pulse reached three draws in their last five home games while Iwata have had three draws in their last five games overall.
Correct Score Prediction: 1:1 Draw
This is the most possible result we envision for this fixture. Perhaps one side will prevail and reach a 1:2/2:1 win but we think that there is a lot of value in the draw here. If Iwata lose this game, they will almost certainly get relegated this season and they cannot afford to lose it. Not that the draw will work wonders but it will be much better than a defeat. Shimizu S-Pulse are not a strong host, so we expect one goal per team max.
Shimizu S-Pulse vs Iwata: Form, Recent Games, and News
Shimizu S-Pulse Preview
Shimizu S-Pulse have been battling that relegation for years now and this season, it seems like they finally will get down to the lower tier. They have had a disastrous season in terms of results. With a goal difference of 40:48, it may not seem like it has been that bad but they are at the bottom, right? The team has had a problem with the draws throughout the entire season in games they could have won.
Jubilo Iwata will spend just one season in the elite after getting promoted at the start of this season. Of course, the miracle could happen but we do not see how it will after that terrible season the past 6 months. With a goal difference of 31:54, they definitely deserve to get relegated this season. There are three games left in the season for them.
