Across the same period, Oita is winless. Moreover, they without a win away from home in their last 8 league matches. S-Pa should take home the three points on offer and fourth distance themselves from the relegation slots.

Historically, this fixture has been laden with goals. In their last six meetings, an aggregate of 19 goals has been scored by both clubs at an average of 3.17 goals per game. However, the circumstances this season does not point towards a high scoring affair. S-Pa have the better per goal average at 2.4, while Oita is straggling behind with 2.2. It looks unlikely that they will be breaking the mould of their recent performances in this fixture, especially with the match possibly deciding the fate of the relegation battle.

Both Teams to Score: No

With the season entering its second half, little separates the teams in the bottom half of the table. Each fixture is a potential six-point affair that can direct who stays up and who is sent down to the second division. It depends on who has the better defensive record. Coming into the fixture, there is little that separates the two teams in question, with seven goals conceded across their last five affairs. Shimizu S-Pulse has the better offensive record with eight goals to their names, while Oita has only scored twice. It looks likely that another clean sheet will be on the cards as they meet each other.

Shimizu S-Pulse vs Oita Trinita Fixture Preview

Shimizu S-Pulse

S-Pa have overcome their jitters in recent weeks, claiming two wins and a draw from their last four J1 League outings. They have secured four-point security over the relegation slots but need more if they are to avoid a hair breadth escape and a low points table placement. Miguel Ángel Lotina should be lauded for the improvements Shimizu S-Pulse have made in the attacking department. However, they remain susceptible at the back, continuously getting their defence breached.

Oita Trinita

The Azzurro finished the last campaign in 11th place and were shy of a relegation battle. Their performances have tanked in the current campaign as they lie in 19th place. They are five points shy of safety but luck has not sided with them of late. They have conceded a whopping 29 goals and only have 12 goals to show for their forays on the pitch. Oita Trinita continues to sluggishly perform in all departments and has paid the price as a consequence. If they want solace, they will have to dramatically improve or it will be curtains for them.
