Vissel Kobe vs Oita Trinita
Japan – J. League
Date: Saturday, 22 June 2019
Kick-off at 10:00 UK/ 11:00 CET
Venue: Kobe Universiade Memorial Stadium (Kobe).
Oita, despite their sixth-place in league standings, has been on a barren run. They have not been able to record a win in the last four attempts. Still, the first runner-up spot in the table is up for grabs, with just a three-point surplus.
Their last match saw them spoiling home advantage, and a one-goal lead, against Nagoya. The team had broken the deadlock in the 37th minute, but could not hold on to it. Kazuya Miyahara found the back of the net to equalize the scoreline, and to present a point for his squad.
Kobe did something great the last day, and recorded a win over league-topper Tokyo, with the help of a solitary goal. And who else to score the winner other than Spain’s dear son Andres Iniesta. The value of the win soars even high, as the victor was on the road.
