Kashiwa Reysol had one of the craziest recovery periods of the entire season in the previous round when Kashiwa Reysol scored up to two goals to defeat Shonan Bellmare on the road. The golden-blacks pulled ahead with the lead of their men, especially in the second half, blocking Yokohama F. Marinos deep and taking every chance they had. The home crowd cheered when The Gold and Black returned, but the decisive moment came in the 35th minute when Shinnosuke Hatanaka showed his second yellow card, and Yokohama F. Marinos was down to 10 men.
Anderson Lopes started the scoring with an early goal in the 5th minute. Lopes’ goal put pressure on Kashiwa Reysol. Kashiwa then began to press higher and made attacks on them. In the 24th minute, Kashiwa equalised through Hosoya. The game took an exciting turn before the end of the first half when Hatanaka was sent off, and the Yokohama F. Marinos were left with ten men.
In the second half, Yokohama had control over the ball; in fact, they controlled the ball for the majority of the time and made passes all around the field. But it looked like a difficult task for them to convert chances on goal with a man down. Kashiwa took the lead in the 60th minute when Douglas scored through a deflection from his teammate, who tried to block the Yokohama’s goalkeeper clearance. Two Kashiwa players pressed the keeper. In the 87th minute, Iwata was shown a yellow card which was then changed to red after the foul, and thus, Yokohama was left with nine men on the field. Tomoya Koyamatsu then took the advantage and scored the third goal for Kashiwa.
Kashiwa Reysol is now placed third in the league table with six points.
