Yokohama F. Marinos form and stats

The story so far in the J-League for Yokohama F. Marinos at their home stadium (Nissan Stadium) is 4 wins, 1 draw and 4 defeats. With three straight defeats the pressure is piling up on Yokohama to get some points in this home game. Two defeats in a row at home hurts for Yokohama, their manager A. Postecoglou and the supporters. There are certain expectations for improvement.

The Yokohama crowd went home unhappy last time out, seeing their beloved players lose 1-2 to Cerezo Osaka here at Nissan Stadium in a J-League match. Heartbreak before that as Yokohama lost 1-2 at Nagoya Grampus's place.

There will be little rest for Yokohama after this match as they are travelling to Sagan Tosu for a J-League game in only three days.

The Yokohama manager A. Postecoglou has got the team scoring with 19 from 9 home games in the league. Defensively it’s touch-and-go for the home team as 15 goals have been conceded.

Shimizu S-Pulse form and stats

There's been little loot from Shimizu S-Pulse's travels as they have only collected 3 points from 7 away games in the J-League. Shimizu S-Pulse, who have the most conceded goals (37) in J-League, only have 0 wins to counter their 4 defeats and 3 draws. It's looking increasingly bleak for Shimizu who now has to deal with a six game losing streak. Vegalta Sendai was the last time a defeat was avoided. Shimizu has lost their two previous away games and are eager to kill a negative trend in its infancy.

This game can not go any worse than the last one, a J-League home defeat versus Kashima Antlers with 1-2 on the scoreboard. Prior to that match, the Shimizu manager P. Cklamovski faced defeat when travelling to Sanfrecce Hiroshima and losing 1-4.

The visitors will be packing their bags again in only three days as another away game awaits: The J-League trip to Shonan Bellmare.

The visitors have scored 4 goals from 7 away games in the league, an average of less than one per game. Shimizu have conceded 16 goals in these games.

Head 2 Head

The most recent history between these sides is the Shimizu S-Pulse - Yokohama 3-4 played earlier this season. Head-2-head stats last ten meetings: five - one - four (Yokohama wins - draws - Shimizu S-Pulse wins). As for goals, seven matches ended with three or more goals (over 2,5), three had two or less.
