Scott McIntyre guests for a full review of J1 Matchday 8.
We begin with the top of the table clash in Hiroshima last Friday night, as FC Tokyo went three points clear at the summit thanks to a moment of magic from Diego Oliveira, then we move on to the other game from Friday as Kawasaki won at home for the first time this season in a Kanagawa derby against Shonan (to 15:47).
Next we cover home wins for Nagoya, Sapporo, Kashima and Matsumoto (to 48:18), before finishing with more upheaval at Kobe and another underwhelming weekend for the three Kansai clubs.
