Kansai Roundup (Round 2)


Cerezo Osaka 1 - 1 Gamba Osaka

This week saw our two biggest local teams in action against each other. Cerezo gaining a well-deserved draw against rather tired looking Gamba at Nagai Stadium. A game that attracted 37,000 fans, who were well rewarded by an entertaining game that the home team could easily have won. This game will have given the young, inexperienced team a lot of confidence.

Vissel Kobe 1 - 2 Sanfrecce Hiroshima

Kobe's Captain Marvel came off the bench and even scored for the home team, but was unable to prevent the classy visitors from taking all three points.


Kyoto Sanga 1 - 1 Kashima Antlers

This was probably the result of the day for our local teams. A Kyoto team that last week looked in dire danger of imploding, managed to snatch a point from the defending champions.


Giravanz Kitakyushu 1 - 3 Tokushima Vortis

And finally, Tokushima travelled all the way to Kitakyushu but emerged victorious and sit joint top of the J2 table with maximum points from two games. New signing Hirashige opening his account after a couple of bad misses last week.
