Vissel Bounce Back to (Relative) Safety

Another good performance from Wada's new-look Kobe sees them earn an unexpected point in Kawasaki. That point, along with JEF's loss to Sanfrecce sees Vissel climb back out of the relegation zone... just. They are still far from safe, but again showed that they should be able to play their way out of trouble.

Although MIyamoto's spectacular bicycle-kick for the second equalizer grabbed all the headlines, the most reassuring aspect of this game was that Vissel did indeed come back after conceding goals to earn a well-deserved point.
