S-Pulse 0-0 FC Tokyo
Agg: 1-1 (S-Pulse win on away goals)
M. Yamamoto on for Edamura (68)
Hara on for Ono (80)
Nagasawa on for Johnsen (89)
Well, if you're going to travel over 6000 miles for a 0-0, it had better be a good one. Luckily for me, it was, and while we rode our luck one, two, three - I lose count how many times, Nishibe played a blinder, we didn't concede, and we go through on away goals.
For our part, we were without both Okazaki and Fujimoto, whose 19 goals between them have seen them both called up to the national team, so with the untried top three of Hyodo, Johnsen and Edamura, I guess things were always going to be a bit on the slow side. We did carve out a few good chances, and Teru had a good game. He'll play to see his 500th appearance yet.
