Tokyo to Win or Draw

Shimizu S-Pulse are winless in four competitive engagements, losing three successive fixtures in all competitions. FC Tokyo have struggled in the 2021 campaign but have been on an upward trajectory in recent weeks. They are unbeaten in three matches, winning two successive matches in the Japanese top-flight football. With form on their side, they should be able to pile more misery on their hosts in their bid to advance higher up the points table.

Total Goals Under 2.5

S-Pa have only scored once in their last three matches, conceding ten in the process. FC Tokyo have not set the stage on fire with the attacking endeavours, with three of their last five matches seeing less than three goals. Irrespective of their defensive woes, both sides are struggling to score goals with regularity and that trend will not break as they face off each other.

Both Teams to Score: Yes

In their last five away fixtures, FC Tokyo have scored six goals. S-Pa’s form has been poor of late but they can be relied upon to hit the back of the net at the IAI Stadium Nihondaira. With their 0-3 defeat to Nagoya Grampus, they have scored in four successive matches at home turf. There should be goals on either side of the pitch as both teams look to secure the three points on offer and put distance between themselves and the relegation slots.

Shimizu S-Pulse vs Tokyo Fixture Preview

Shimizu S-Pulse

Miguel Ángel Lotina’s charges finished last season in 16th place and S-Pa have the same place after 15 rounds of action. They have a two-point cushion between themselves and the relegation slots, a gap they need to widen as the first half of the season comes to an end. Lotina needs to address the growing number of draws that his side have accumulated, which can only be achieved by improving their scoring form. They have only scored 11 times in the J1 League this season, the third-worst this season.

FC Tokyo

The Capital club have struggled this season after finishing the last campaign in the sixth position. The chief reason for their decline has been their inability to keep rivals at bay. They are separated by S-Pa by nine points but have conceded three more goals. FC Tokyo are up in the points table with their better scoring output, one that stands on the shoulders of their Brazilian contingent. Diego is leading their scoring charts with seven goals to his name, and his hit the back of the net in successive matches for Tokyo.
