J. League leaders Kawasaki Frontale aim to return to winning ways this weekend when hosting strugglers Shimizu S-Pulse. Saturday's hosts have taken one point in their last two games, yet sit eight points clear of nearest rivals Cerezo Osaka.

Both Cerezo and Nagoya Grampus Eight have games in hand, but Toru Oniki's side know they have a golden opportunity to prevail here. Will they stumble against a side with just two victories in 2020? Read my match preview, for the correct score predictions and best betting tips ahead of this fixture.

Kawasaki Frontale vs Shimizu S-Pulse Betting Tips

Expect squad rotation for both sides, ahead of this encounter. Why? Neither side have been particularly convincing recently – especially Shimizu, who are winless in four (all comps). They lost 3-2 against Yokohama last weekend, despite recording 20 shots (10 on target), missing four big chances and keeping goalkeeper Yuta Minami busy with eight saves.

Yuito Suzuki and Junior Dutra, both introduced just before the hour-mark, should be in-line for starts here. Since their 1-0 win over Sagan Tosu on December 7, they've kept just one clean sheet in 16 matches. That's not good enough for a side eager to climb up the J. League standings.

As for Kawasaki, they lost 1-0 away to Nagoya on August 23 and followed that result with a 2-2 draw against mid-table Vissel Kobe in midweek. Across those two matches, they recorded 25 shots (10 on target) and scored twice – missing three big chances along the way.

Ryota Oshima and Reo Hatate, their goalscorers on Wednesday, are expected to start again here. Kaoru Mitoma and Hidemasa Morita should feature too, in a must-win clash for this weekend's hosts.

Kawasaki Frontale vs Shimizu Correct Score Predictions

I think the historical H2H speaks volumes for who are favourites in this clash: Kawasaki have 12 wins, to Shimizu's two, after 18 meetings. Despite their aforementioned blip recently, I'd be surprised if Kawasaki didn't emerge victorious here. Sure, Shimizu have been unlucky at times this term but are expected to be second best against better opposition.
