All 4-1: Vissel's musketeers fire in four!

If Vissel Kobe keep on being involved in 4-1 games, people will start calling them the musketeers, famous for saying: 'All for one!'

Goals from Tashiro, Popo, Mazinho, and Ogawa ensured that Vissel Kobe remain top of J2, with a 4-1 home win over ThespaKusatsu. Just 4 days before, Vissel had gone down by the same scoreline in a 'local' derby at Kyoto Sanga, consequently losing their unbeaten league record.

The same fate awaited the previously unbeaten Sanga, after Sunday's 1-0 away defeat at Kotaller Toyama, who move just above Kyoto into fifth.

After five games, three teams remain unbeaten: second-placed Gainare Tottori; and the two draw-specialists: Gamba Osaka and Fagiano Okayama.

Two teams are still win-less: (the already doomed?) Gifu, still rooted to the foot of the table, and second-from-bottom Tokyo Verdy.
