Meiji Yasuda Life J2 League Round 5 Jubilo Iwata vs Shimizu S-Pulse was held on the 18th.
15th place Iwata with 1 win, 1 draw and 2 losses and 14th place Shimizu, who has drawn 4 games in a row since the opening, in the “Shizuoka Derby”. Both teams were relegated in the J1 league last season, and it was a clash while aiming for promotion in a year.
The game shows movement immediately after the start. In the 2nd minute, Keisuke Goto, who escaped to the left of the box from the counter, fired a sharp left-footed shot to win a one-on-one victory over the master Shuichi Gonda. For Goto, a 17-year-old active high school student, this is his third goal of the season.
Still, in the 42nd minute, Thiago Santana received a pass from Kenta Nishizawa on the left side of the box and kicked his left foot. Last season’s top scorer in J1, Santana, stabbed a powerful blow into the net to score his first goal of the season, and Shimizu caught up.
Shimizu continued to attack in the second half when the score was tied, but Iwata took the lead in the 66th minute. Yuto Suzuki, who has the ball on the front right of the box, kicks in a cross, and Masaya Matsumoto jumps up with a fur. He hit Nia with his head.
Even so, in the 87th minute, when Iwata’s clearing against the floating ball was incomplete, Santana reacted. He swung his left foot to the left of the box to score for the second time of the day.
And the game ended with a tie. As a result, Iwata has 1 win, 2 draws and 2 losses at the opening, and Shimizu has not won a win and has drawn 5 points in a row, resulting in a pain sharing result.
