I mistook this game for a cup game. The previous game was a cup game as are the next four, but for some reason that escapes me this weekend was scheduled for league fixtures. Whatever, the three points come in very handy. Although Sanfrecce would have been expected to win this game since Trinita are currently rock bottom, they did manage a draw last week in the cup against Urawa (2nd in the league) and nobody wants to be facing a team who have their backs against the wall and a new-found purpose. Hisato put paid to that with his second goal in two games, which after today (Sunday)’s games, means Sanfrecce are in sixth place, level on points with Gamba Osaka.
