Shimizu S-Pulse – V-Varen Nagasaki:
Shimizu’s form is a bit on an off but they have had some relatively tough opponents lately. They’ve actually yet to win a match at home but it should only be a matter of time before that first win come.
Nagasaki took a bit of a beating vs Tokyo at home last round and lost 2-5 in the end. They’ve lost all 3 away-matches so far and can’t see anything different happen here.
The -0,5 line on Shimizu seems golden and I’m backing it with maximum stake.
