Nagoya vs Shimizu S-Pulse by Alexis1016
Nagoya Grampus with a new coach on the bench for this season. Piksi Strojkovic left the club and was replaced with a local trainer, A. Nishino, a good coach, who won AFC Champions League with Gamba Osaka some years ago.
Important offensive midfielder Jungo Fujimoto (Yokohama F-Marinos) left the team in this winter, but they brought Ryosuke Noda from Sagan Tosu, a good player for this level. No other important moves for Nagoya in this winter. The young defender Kazuki Sato is injured.
On the other hand, Shimizu S-Pulse lost their best striker, the man from Montenegro, Dzenan Radoncic, but he was replaced by former striker of FC Koln, Milivoje Novakovic. So, isn't a huge blow for them the loss of Radoncic because Novakovic it's also a good striker and I see him more clinical in front of the goal. Also, other two good transfers for S-Pulse, the central defender, Dejan Jakovic (DC United) and the left winger Yoshiaki Takagi (Utrecht). The central forward Sho Ito was sold to Yokohama F-Marinos.
Even without Jungo Fujimoto, Nagoya remains strong in front of the goal thanks to Joshua Kennedy, Keiji Tamada and Kensuke Nagai. Shimizu will be without defensive midfielder Taisuke Muramatsu, who is suspended for this game, he was a regular starter in the last season.
Also, Shimizu is strong in front of the goal thanks to Genki Omae and the new transfer Yoshiaki Takagi in the wings and the central forward will be the powerful Novakovic.
Well, good attacking players for both side here and I expect some goals in this game.
