Episode 326 - J1 Matchdays 6 & 7

July 28, 2020

After a huge week in J1 both on and off the pitch, Dan Orlowitz and Scott McIntyre return with star guest turns.

In Part 1 (to 13:30) Dan fills us in on the latest (at the time of recording on Monday night) at Nagoya Grampus, whose Matchday 7 fixture away at Hiroshima was postponed after two more players and a member of staff tested positive for COVID-19. This story remains fluid, and Nagoya's Matchday 8 fixture remains in doubt - be sure to follow Dan on Twitter for updates.

Then Scott joins us to discuss leaders Kawasaki after they notched two come from behind victories in the past week, and we wonder if second-placed Gamba Osaka, who zipped up the table after an impressive week of their own, will offer Frontale a sterner test when the top two clash this coming Saturday.  From there we move on to FC Tokyo and Cerezo Osaka after their pair of draws, before we stretch our leg(s) (at 52:47) and finish with a flourish, chatting about Matchday 7 wins for Urawa, Kashiwa, Sapporo and Shimizu.
