Vissel do nicely

Vissel Kobe are still doing nicely in J2, topping the league with a 100% record from 3 games. A solitary goal from Mazinho was enough to condemn Consadole Sapporo to defeat.

Also at home in Kansai, goals were even more at a premium in Osaka, where Gamba took on unbeaten Yokohama. At least it was a first clean sheet in J2 for Gamba, who remain in a play-off berth.

Meanwhile, Kyoto Sanga registered their first J2 win of the season, away at Avispa Fukuoka. After falling behind, Sanga struck back with a goal from Komai and a late winner from Mitsuhira to make it 2 wins and one draw for J2's Kansai-based giants.

Elsewhere, Gainare Tottori went second, with a 3-1 home victory over Mito Hollyhock, while bottom-placed Gifu picked up their first point of the season with a goal-less draw at home to Thespakusatsu Gunma.

In one of today's other scoreless draws, J1's defending champions Sanfrecce Hiroshima dropped points at home to unbeaten Kashima Antlers.
