Shimzu S-Pulse 2 3 Albirex Niigata
(Omiya Ardija 0 0 Ventforet Kofu)
(Hiroshima Sanfrecce 2 1 FC Tokyo)
Once again terribly disappointing result for Shimizu S-Pulse which seems to auto flagellate themselves
After such a good first half they disappeared from the scene during the whole second half.
Ventforet Kofu drew so it will be a fight to the very last match!
S-Pule fans do not deserve that!
FULL TIME: Shimizu S-PUlse 2 3 Arbirex Niigata

HALF-TIME: Shimizu S-Pulse 2 0 Arbirex Niigata.
Shimizu S-Pulse clearly dominated the first half and merits to lead but it should have been at least double!
Let’s hope they will bank on that!
The best way is clearly attacking more a Niigata team where only RONY is proving really dangerous.

Kick off at 13:03!
Shimizu S-PUlse still beset with injuries: The newest injury caused KAWAI and MURATA to miss today’s game. On the other hand IIDA, KAKUDA and KAMATA are back from injuries and sitting on the bench with FREIRE and TIAGO SILVA having purged recent penalties.
S-Pulse still sticks to an old-fashioned 4-4-2 while Niigata concentrates on a heavy midfield with a 4-5-1 formation.
