2015/5/20 Yokohama F.Marinos 2-3 Vissel Kobe
Vissel Kobe came home from Yokohama F.Marinos with three points in this J.league Yamazaki Nabisco Cup group match thanks to a brace from Kazuma Watanabe - against his former club - and a winner from Ryota Morika.
Watanabe notched his goals in the 21st and 62nd minutes to give the away team a two goal lead, then Morioka added the winner with eight minutes to go after goals from Seitaro Tomisawa and Sho Ito had brought the hosts level.
This victory kept Vissel in second place in the group standings, three points clear of Yamagata and Frontale - who drew 1-1 on the night. With a game in hand on top team Nagoya Grampus, too, qualification is in the hands of the team. Next up comes a home tie against Shimizu S-Pulse, who can not qualify for the knockout stages, before Vissel take on Grampus away in the final group match.
Team - Yamamoto, Iwanami, Kitamoto, Sho.Takahashi, Jung, Morioka, Shu.Takahashi, Okui, Ferrugem (Maeda, 84), Watanabe, Ogawa (Pedro Junior, 73)
