Vissel Kobe 4-1 Sanfrecce Hiroshima
(J.league YBC Leaven Cup)
Vissel Kobe annihilated their visitors in this midweek J.league YBC Levain Cup match, with plenty of changes and rotation in the team reinforcing what an excellent squad manager Nelsinho has to play with this season. The loss of Leandro was a huge blow, but new players are settling in well, youngsters are gaining experience with increased game time, and whoever is sent out on the field appear to be playing as a team, whatever the formation or selection.
The match was effectively over by half time with the home team racking up four goals - a brace apiece for Junya Tanaka and Yuya Nakasaka, while Sanfrecce Hiroshima managed a single reply through Yoichi Naganuma with minutes to go as Vissel took their collective feet off the gas in the second period!
100% record, top of the group.
