Shimizu S-Pulse vs Oita Trinita Prediction

Shimizu S-Pulse is on the verge of falling into the relegation zone in the table. They have won 10 games so far while losing 16 in the process. Also, the host had tied 5 games in their 31 league appearances which contributed to the 35 points in their hand.

Shimizu has been losing games consecutively in the last four clashes in the campaign.

Besides that, their prior home match with Iwata ended in a 1-2 scoreline in which the lone goal was courtesy of an own goal. In the game, they had only 28% ball possession in 90 minutes.

Oita Trinita is the promoted team of the campaign but has been performing better for a promoted team in the mix. They have 12 wins and 10 draws placing them at the 7th spot with 46 points. Also, the guest has scored 34 goals and conceded 30 in the process.

A late goal in the second-half injury time by Goto Y gave the three points to Oita in the previous trip on the road to Urawa.

Based on their current league performance, Shimizu is on a backhand. Since Oita is a promoted team, it is better to go with a double chance in the game. Also, there is a probability to see both the teams score goals in ninety minutes.
