Kansai Round-up (May 5)

Vissel logo

Shonan Bellmare 2-2 Vissel Kobe

The battle of the likely relegation candidates predictably ended in a stalemate. The only good news for Vissel fans is that Tokura looks like he is adjusting to life in J1 and the fact that the upcoming World Cup break will likely see a long-overdue end to the Miura era.


Tokushima Vortis 4-0 FC Gifu

The former Grampus combination of Aoyama and Tsuda help the home team give their home fans in Naruto reason to cheer after a couple of poor home games. The team exploding for four second half goals after a closely fought opening 45 minutes.


Cerezo Osaka 2-1 Kashima Antlers

As reported earlier, Cerezo won fairly comfortably against a very disappointing Kashima. Teruyuki Moniwa proving to be far too good a defender for the mismatched Koroki.


Kyoto Sanga 2-4 Shimizu S-Pulse

Although former Japan striker Yanagisawa bagged the 100th goal of his career, with a well-taken chance, the Purples were no match for the Shimizu bandwagon and were duly crushed under its wheels as four second half goals cancelled out the home team's 2-0 half time lead.


Gamba Osaka 4-4 Kawasaki Frontale

The two championship hopefuls played out a high-scoring game that saw the home team blow a 3-1 lead with 20 minutes to go.
