2018/7/22 Vissel Kobe 0-3 Shonan Bellmare
Vissel Kobe 0-3 Shonan Bellmare
Vissel Kobe went down to a 3-0 defeat against a hard-working, yet physical, and often thuggish Shonan Bellmare in this game before over 26,000 fans, a huge majority of them going home very disappointed in the result. Andres Iniesta made an appearance just before the hour mark but could not sway the game, with the away team continuing their physical, and often illegal challenges to which Vissel had no answer tonight.
Goals from Keisuke Saka (10'), Mitsuki Saito (48') and Shunsuke Kikuchi (67') made this a night to forget for Vissel Kobe's fans, despite them getting a glimpse of the Little Magician from Spain in the Crimson shirt.
