There is a gap in both sides’ recent performance in the league.
Nagoya Grampus Eight are winless for 4 successive league games, while Shimizu S-Pulse are unbeaten for 4 consecutive matches in the league.
Besides, Shimizu S-Pulse have won both of their 2 league games against Nagoya Grampus Eight last season.
However, the AH opening line is -0.50 for the hosts, which is still in favor of Nagoya Grampus Eight.
Nagoya Grampus Eight have just got back to winning ways with a win in the League Cup. So they are expected to grab another win this time.
