Shimizu S-Pulse to Win
Both Shonan Bellmare and Shimizu S-Pulse head into this fixture on the back of unimpressive defeats. Bin Ukishima's Bellmare charges have lost five matches in succession and look unlikely to reverse their fortunes. While S-Pa has not alighted the J1 League with their performances, they have drawn two and won once in their last four away trips. We back the visitors to take home the points on offer given their relatively better form.
Total Goals: Under 2.5
Three of Shonan Bellmare's last four competitive outings have finished with less than three goals on offer. S-Pa's tally reads two in the same stretch of games. The hosts have two goals to their name in these outings, while the visitors from Shimizu have three. With both sides struggling to score effectively and failing to create goal-scoring opportunities, we expect this fixture to conclude with an Under 2.5 goals scoreline.
Both Teams to Score: No
Both Shonan Bellmare and Shimizu S-Pulse have been shut out twice in their last four competitive outings. While they have conceded on each of these occasions. As they battle it out amongst themselves, the team that can hold off their rivals will surely put distance between themselves and the relegation slots. Given the importance of the fixture and the stakes involved, we expect a cagey affair where just one side will manage to get on the scoreboard.
Shonan Bellmare vs Shimizu S-Pulse: Team News and Match Preview
Nagoya Grampus' losing streak came to an end as they consigned Shonan Bellmare to their fifth successive loss in the J1 League. Bin Ukishima's side occupies the last relegation slot but can move out with the three points against S-Pa. It will be easier said than done, as they are the worst side in the Japanese top-flight football, losing five matches in succession as they conceded 11 goals with just four in reply.
After an unbeaten run of five competitive matches, S-Pa has fallen back on old habits. They are winless in their most recent five fixtures, losing thrice and drawing twice. There are problems across the pitch for Miguel Lotina, whose side have found goal-scoring form but continue to be outscored by their rivals. Moreover, their chances for success have been jolted with injuries to Renato Augusto, Yoshinori Suzuki, Carlinhos Junior and Takumi Kato.
