Shimizu S-Pulse – Gamba Osaka:
Shimizu are not in a particular good form with just 2-1-5 on their last 8 matches and they have gone 3 in a row at home without winning. They get back their key FW Douglas for this match though which is boost.
Gamba took their first away-win of the season last round vs Kobe, which should be a big morale-booster. For that match their key FW Hwang returned, and he topped of a good game by scoring the winner.
Both teams have been extremely over lately, with Shimizu having 7 straight matches that have gone over 2,5, while 7 out Gamba’s last 9 have matches have done the same. So the over 2,75 is a no-brainer here, and I also fancy Gamba’s chances here for a win.
