Vegalta Sendai to Win or Draw

Shimuzu S-Pulse and Vegalta Sendai have been involved in 26 duels across their history. Vegalta are trailing their rivals with 9 wins to 13, with 4 endings in a draw. Form in the current campaign also favours Shimizu S-Pulse, who have scored an equal 15 goals but have conceded eight goals less. However, we tilt in Vegalta’s favour as they are unbeaten in their last four matches, while S-Pa have lost five successive away fixtures.

Total Goals Under 2.5

In their H2H meetings, both teams have combined to score 2.73 goals per match. This tally is greater than their current average of 2.6 for Vegalta Sendai and 2.2 for Shimizu S-Pulse. Both teams have struggled to score regularly, and that trend will continue in this meeting. We expect a low scoring affair with the scoreboard reading Under 2.5 goals.

Both Teams to Score: No

S-Pa have failed to score in their last three away trips in the J1 League. Across the same period, Vegalta Sendai have fared better by Shimizu’s standards but their average of 1 goal per match does not inspire confidence. Combined, they have scored 30 goals in their 35 matches.  This match should not be any different, with just one side getting on the scoreboard.

Vegalta Sendai vs Shimizu S-Pulse Fixture Preview

Vegalta Sendai

Vegalta Sendai avoided relegation last season due to the rules brought forward by the coronavirus pandemic. They are still struggling in the Japanese top-flight football, having the safety of a point between them and relegation slots.  Their scoring issues are their bane and Makoto Teguramori needs to address this. Their defence has also not helped their cause with 31 goals shipped.

Shimizu S-Pulse

S-Pa were in the same boat as they are in this season. Hovering around the bottom places and providing nothing their fans could cheer about. With just fifteen goals scored, they have to improve their tally or risk going down to the second division. While their scoring woes will be on Miguel Ángel Lotina’s head, their defensive performances with just 23 goals conceded is one less headache for the manager.
