Yokohama F.Marinos take a leader of the table after crashing Kashiwa Reysol with a score 4-0 in the J.League 2022 at Nissan Stadium, Yokohama.
A battle between the leader Yokohama FM and Kashiwa, who took the lead in the second half of the Meiji Yasuda J1. Both of them fought the third round of the Emperor’s Cup on Wednesday, and while they were greeted on the 2nd of the middle, U-21 Japan National Team, Joel Chima Fujita, who returned from the U23 Asia Cup, returned to the starting lineup for the first time in two games from the previous section. Minimal member changes. Away Kashiwa replaced Keiya Shiihashi, who was suspended, with Masatoshi Mihara as the anchor, and Mao Hosoya and GK Masato Sasaki, who are also U-21 Japan national teams, and replaced the three from the previous section.
While both seemed to be strong, Kashiwa had a long time to be inferior after Mateus’s breakthrough of Savio’s single horse and the final five-minute scene where Mihara finished. On the other hand, Yokohama FM will capture the vacant space regardless of the side. In the 9th minute, Elbelle and Takuma Nishimura made a small one-two at the center of the attacking third, and finally Elbelle swung his right foot and shot a strong shot but slipped past the side of the post.
Still, in the 17th minute, he scored the first goal from the collapse of the center. Starting from Kota Mizunuma, Leonardo shed with a heel, and Nishimura ran into it to finish. When I hit Yuji Takahashi’s foot in the block, it fell into the frame with a slight loop.
Yokohama FM, who was lucky enough to score one point, will not let go of the attack. In the 19th minute, Eubel cut Kashiwa’s build-up at a high position, calming down one-on-one with the goalkeeper and letting it sideways, Leo’s Ceara pushed without difficulty to widen the lead to two points. After that, he continued to develop a half-court game by switching offense and defense and showing outstanding concentration.
Then, the third point is born as early as 28 minutes after the drinking time. From the throw-in on the right side, Leo Mizunuma traps the ball thrown by his Ceara in his chest and swings his right foot vigorously, shaking the net. Kashiwa wanted to fight back, but he couldn’t take advantage of the chance of set play and couldn’t capture the defense of Yokohama FM even at the counter. He turns the first half without making any chance.
Kashiwa, who chases 3 points, dares to replace 3 cards in half time. Show your willingness to fight back. However, Yokohama FM loses its nose. In the 47th minute, Katsuya Nagato’s highly accurate cross was turned back by Hatanaka Makinosuke with a fur from the FK obtained on the right side of the opponent’s team, and Leo’s Ceara scored the fourth goal to decide the game early.
After that, Tomoki Iwata was injured and replaced at Yokohama FM, but Marinos maintained his strength with accurate replacements such as his junior and Teruhito Nakagawa. Kashiwa, on the other hand, puts the wingback in a high position and fights back, but Yokohama FM has excellent risk management including GK Yohei Takaoka, and does not show any skits at all.
Kashiwa coach Nelsinho raised a white flag, saying, “The fact that I couldn’t get into the alert was a tail to the end. I was inferior in my courageous fighting stance, both technically and tactically.” “If we can perform today, the results will come naturally,” said Kevin Muscat, director of Yokohama FM. In the battle between three consecutive victories, Tricolor won the last match and won the first four consecutive victories this season.
