Machida Zelvia 0 – 1 Avispa Fukuoka
The one moment of genuine quality in the game, and the only way which Avsipa looked like scoring on the terrible pitch as Sakata chases down a defender and gets the ball on the right before feeding Suzuki Jun to find the cornef of the goal with his left foot.
My target for him this season was to have at least 1 long shot each game and having had an effort last week he did it again and scored this week. Important to keep it up if only to worry opposition defences.
It turns out that we are the only team who are going to be playing on that terrible pitch this season, so getting 3 points and being one of only 5 teams to start the season 100% is looking an even better result.
