Results from this weekend’s games:

  • FC Gifu 0-1 Consadole Sapporo
  • Mito Hollyhock 1-1 Cerezo Osaka
  • Tokushima Vortis 2-2 Kamatamare Sanuki
  • Giravanz Kitakyushu 2-0 Roasso Kumamoto
  • Zweigen Kanazawa 1-1 Oita Trinita

So, despite an excellent point for Oita in Kanazawa there were no winners at the bottom last weekend, leaving the table looking something like this:

18 18 2 10 6 14 21 -7 16
19 18 3 6 9 13 27 -14 15
20 18 4 3 11 18 36 -18 15
21 18 3 5 10 14 22 -8 14
22 18 2 7 9 17 25 -8 13

Still pretty tight, but the goal differences of FC Gifu and Roasso Kumamoto are worth keeping an eye on. Here is what is on the menu next Sunday:

  • Jubilo Iwata v FC Gifu
  • Tokyo Verdy v Roasso Kumamoto
  • Thespa Kusatsu Gunma v Mito Hollyhock
  • Oita Trinita v JEF United
  • Cerezo Osaka v Tokushima Vortis

Not very appetizing games for Gifu, Oita nor Tokushima. Mito Hollyhock face a potentially pivotal “Kita-Kanto” derby when they travel to Gunma, undoubtedly buoyed by last week’s draw with Cerezo Osaka. Roasso Kumamoto head to Ajinomoto Stadium looking for their third away win of the year.
