Sanfrecce Hiroshima to Win
The last time Sanfrecce Hiroshima visited IAI Stadium Nihondaira, they returned with the three points on offer. This has been the case on seven of their last eight visits and will be confident in repeating their heroics of the past. With S-Pa losing three of their last four matches and drawing the other, the chances of a Viola victory are high and we are putting our money behind them.
Total Goals: Under 2.5
It is S-Pa's defence that has been their bane this season and will play a key role in this meeting as well. The hosts have conceded nine goals with just four in reply. Sanfrecce has managed a similar goal tally but their defence has only allowed six goals. With both attacks having a difficult time in getting on the scoreboard, we are backing an Under 2.5 total goals punt in this fixture.
Both Teams to Score: No
In three of their last four J League fixtures, S-Pa has failed to get on the scoreboard. It looks unlikely that they will have much success against the Viola, who have defeated them in seven of their last eight trips to the IAI Stadium Nihondaira. However, the visitors have scored in four of their last five fixtures and have the best chance of troubling the scorers. Given the relative frugality of both offensive lineups, we do not see both outfits scoring in this meeting.
Shimizu S-Pulse vs Sanfrecce Hiroshima: Team News and Match Preview
Miguel Angel Lotina had to get Shimizu S-Pulse out of the relegation slots and he delivered on his objective. The team seems to have relaxed and have been on the back foot in their recent outings. With just one point from their last four J League outings, they are flirting with disaster as only three points lie between them and the relegation.
If there is one team S-Pa would not want to engage at this moment, it would be Sanfrecce Hiroshima. The Viola have claimed seven wins at their expense from their last eight trips and will be confident in adding to this tally given their rivals poor form. It will not be easy to achieve it as Sanfrecce are on a poor run of form and have lost twice and drawn once in their last three outings.
