Sagan Tosu vs Shimizu S Pulse match information

Time: 18:00 (GMT+8), October 23rd, 2019

Venue: Ekimae Real Estate Stadium

Competition: 2019 Emperor Cup

With a surprise victory over Cerezo Osaka in the previous match by the score of 4-2 at home, Sagan Tosu advanced to the quarter-finals of the Emperor Cup 2019, where they will have a meeting with Shimizu at home. This is an opportunity for them to win the only title this season.

During the past season, Sagan Tosu played in a rather flattering form. Specifically, in the J-League this team ranked 15th in the rankings with 32 points. This makes their dream of participating in the AFC playground fader.

However, in recent matches, Sagan Tosu has shown positive signs in the gameplay and gained important progress, especially when they beat Cerezo Osaka to advance to the quarterfinals. This gives the fans more confidence that the ambition to attend the continent tournament is returning to their beloved team.

On the other side of the front line, Shimizu was not much better than the host when this team was ranked 13th in the rankings with 3 more points. This is also considered an acceptable achievement with a team that has attended the highest division in Japan.

Going to Sagan Tosu's home field in the next match is considered a huge challenge for Shimizu. Remember, they were unable to win any match against their opponent in the last 5 matches. Playing away from home will be a big challenge for Shimizu, most likely they must receive defeat before host Sagan Tosu.
