Shimizu S-Pulse to Win

Shimizu S-Pulse has won the last three H2H meetings and now have the home stadium advantage working in their favour for their next engagement. They will be looking for a better result as they are without a win in their last nine matches. But their overall numbers are still better than their visitors, who are struggling in the relegation slots. Vegalta Sendai cannot be written off as they enter on the back of a win in their match, which was also an away fixture. We expect to see a good battle which should conclude in favour of the hosts.

Total Goals: Under 2.5

Both Shimizu and Vegalta are lagging in their offensive touch as they managed to find the back of the net only three and four times respectively in their last five matches. Even though we have seen an average of 3.2 goals shared by both teams in their last five meetings, we believe this match to end with a maximum total of two goals and nothing beyond.

Both Teams to Score: No

Three of the last five times in the H2H meetings, we have seen both teams on the scoring side. We do not expect the trend to be repeated in this meeting given their respective misfortunes in putting the ball into the back of the net. Shimizu S-Pulse has almost one goal per match but their rivals Vegalta Sendai is playing with only an average of 0.78 goals per game in the season. With all that in mind, we predict just one side hitting the back of the net.

Shimizu S-Pulse vs Vegalta Sendai: Team News and Match Preview

Shimizu S-Pulse

With the difference of three points separating them, Shimizu is surviving at just one position above the relegation battle and struggling for the win from nine matches. If they keep that run, there would be no doubt to find themselves in relegation after the season ends. Elsinho and two others are going to miss the fixture due to fitness concerns.

Vegalta Sendai

After playing 11 matches without a win consecutively of the season, they finally managed to defeat Gamba Osaka in their last league match. But due to the lack of wins, they are struggling in the relegation zone with 22 points and will have to be disciplined in every aspect. They have had a negative balance against S-Pa in recent years but that should not count for anything as the hosts are winless in nine outings.
