Kansai leads the way in J2

Vissel Kobe have started their J2 (promotion?) campaign in decent form, with back-to-back victores, two clean sheets and top spot in the division.

Gamba Osaka also recorded a win this weekend, and once again managed three goals, making them top scorers in the division. A 3-1 win in Nagasaki puts Gamba up to 3rd: a play-off place if they are there at the end of the season.

Last year's play-off semi-finalists, Kyoto Sanga, could only manage a goal-less draw at home to Tokyo Verdy. After a promising away draw at Gamba on the opening day, a home win was the doctor ordered to keep Kyoto in contention at the top, but they had to settle for a share of the spoils.
