Kawasaki Frontale to Win

The AFC Champions League witnessed Kawasaki Frontale in fine form, winning all of their group matches spectacularly. They secured progression to the knockout rounds and now return their attention to retaining their J1 League crown. In Shimizu S-Pulse, they have an easy target, one that is struggling in the bottom half of the table but is unbeaten in four outings. S-Pa will be confident in their abilities at home but should submit to the champions, who are unbeaten in ten league outings.

Total Goals Over 2.5

The Azzuro Nero were in sublime form on the continent, winning all six of their fixtures. Only one of their fixture ended with less than three goals, as they scored 27 goals in the group stage. S-Pa have also fared impressively across the same period, scoring eight goals in their last five outings. With both sides having a more than decent goalscoring productivity, expect an Over 2.5 goals scoreline at the full-time whistle.

Both Teams to Score: Yes

Kawasaki Frontale proved their credentials in the AFC Champions League, scoring 27 goals and only conceded 3 in return. S-Pa will surely concede to them but have the ability to bring them down. They will bank on their recently found scoring prowess and also on the tiredness of the Frontale squad. The Champions League fixtures will take their toll on Toru Oniki’s men, who will be playing their seventh match in 20 days.

Shimizu S-Pulse vs Kawasaki Frontale Fixture Preview

Shimizu S-Pulse

S-Pa have worked hard to get out of the relegation slots and are inching towards the top half of the table. They are unbeaten in four league outings, a testament to the work done by Miguel Ángel Lotina. While they have improved defensively, the increased output in the opposition’s third needs to be appreciated. More importantly, this increased productivity has been managed without the help of Thiago Santana, who is Shimizu S-Pulse’s top scorer but has not troubled the scorers in three matches.

Kawasaki Frontale

Toru Oniki’s charges are on course to a fourth J1 League title in five years and with good reason. It is difficult to find fault with Kawasaki Frontale. They have taken their domestic form to the AFC Champions League and impressed on the continent. While tales need to be written about their backline, it pales into comparison to their attacking unit. The frontline has plundered goals for fun in every competition they have set their foot in and no one has been able to stop them.
