Japan – J. League
Date: Saturday, 15th June 2019
Kick-off at 10.00 UK/ 11.00 CET
Venue: IAI Stadium Nihondaira (Shizuoka).
Shimizu is placed at the extreme end of the table and overall has been the worst of the lot. They could manage to win just three games so far and have conceded the most goals of all the 18 squads in contention.
It must be mentioned though that they are trying desperately to put an end to their dismal run and avoided losses in their last three matches in a row.
Yokohama, on the other hand, has been one of the best teams in the competition. They are on a three-game winning streak and have scored the most goals so far. The last day they recorded a win on the road over Shonan. Despite their early goal being equalized, the team rose to the challenge to slot in the winner in the second half.

Shimizu S-Pulse vs Yokohama F.Marinos Prediction
Shimizu has been the overall worst team in the competition, while their counterparts have been one of the best. The former might have avoided a loss in their three league fixtures, but keep in mind that the team could register just five victories from the last 22 attempts.
At home, they lost two of the last three ties and conceded two or more goals in seven of their last ten appearances. Meanwhile, Yokohama won seven of their last nine fixtures and three of the last five away from home. They also managed to score two or more goals in four of the last six match-ups.
Most importantly, h2h ties show that Yokohama is the outright favorite. The last five face-to-face wins went to teams away from home, and 10 of the last 12 went to Marinos as well. At this venue, they have been on a roll with wins in the last six clashes at this stadium.
As things stand, expect the guests to have a merry outing this weekend.
