This week's episode wraps up J1 Matchday 7 with Sam Robson and Tobias Dreimann.
In Part 1 Tobias shares his thoughts on the season to date for top flight leaders Hiroshima, after they retained their hold on top spot with a come from behind 4-2 win at Kobe on Sunday. We then move on to the contrasting victory secured by second-placed FC Tokyo, who burst out of the gates and put Kashima away in the first half hour at Ajinomoto Stadium, before moving on to preview the crunch clash between the top two in Hiroshima on Friday night (to 41:35).
Then after we bid Tobias farewell, Sam runs through the other results from the round, beginning with Oita going third after their home win over Sendai, and including the action-packed draw between Yokohama and Nagoya, and Shimizu claiming a huge first win of the season in the Shizuoka Derby against Iwata.
