In the 61st minute, Yamanaka became free from the side change of Harakawa, and he passed the pass with his right foot from the cut-in, but he could not shoot. Even after that, Cerezo Osaka continued to attack, but he did not reach the goal, as Bruno, who participated in the middle of the game, made use of his horsepower to reach the goal.
Kashima, who led two points in the first half, controlled the game without forcibly attacking in the second half. It took a long time for the opponent to hold the ball, but when he proceeded with the match without conceding a goal, Artur, who participated in the additional time in the second half, was the third goal of his Kaiki. I decided the match.
Kashima won 3-0 by effectively scoring points in the enemy territory. He won the club’s 1,000th J1 match, and overtook Kawasaki F to move up to the top spot.
