J.League 1 R3: Consadole – Shimizu Preview

Consadole Sapporo – Shimizu S-Pulse:

Consadole are flying high after their performance in the 3-3 draw away vs Cerezo last round and will try to build on that here. They lost 0-3 away vs Kofu in the cup midweek, but fielded a b-squad there.

Shimizu are off to a great start, and have looked very good going forward with their quick counter-attacking playstyle.  That might work well here too, as Consadole’s defence have been prone to counter-attacks before.

Consadole are strong at home though, and won all 3 matches vs Shimizu last season and I give them a good chance for 3 points here.  More interestingly are the total though, and Over 2,25 seems like a golden bet.
