Sagan Tosu vs Shimizu S-Pulse by Sureseye
Shimizu (12th) made a commendable 2-2 away to Yokohama last round marking the 4th time in last 5 away league matches they made a draw. Overall they are in a good form and try to stay undefeated. With cup matches inclusive, only Jonathan Reis early strike away to Sapporo was their loss in last 7 matches. They have 3-5-2 with away from home 15 goals scored and 13 conceded. No worry of injury or suspension for the team and they can name an unchanged side from last round. Tiago Alves (10 games, 4 goals - missed last 3 league matches), Yosuke Kawai (1 game, 0 goal). Tomoya Inukai (11 games, 0 goal - missed last 8 league games), Ryohei Shirasaki (14 games, 3 goals - missed last 5 league games) all continue to be ruled out due to injury.
Host cannot be trusted for a victory here based on current form. Guest have what it takes to cause an upset here but they stay too comfortable recently even with a point. Bet is on draw with stake returned if Shimizu wins.
