Just who will stop Kenya’s Michael Olunga? The Kashiwa Reysol hitman continued his fine form in front of goal with his brace helping the Tokyo based side beat Yokohama FC 3-0 in a J.League 1 match played at the NHK Spring Mitsuzawa Football Stadium.
Olunga found the back of the net in the 4th minute before getting a second in the 76th minute. The two goals take his tally of the season to 19 goals.
Kashiwa’s other goal was scored by Hidekazu Otani (90 + 1).
Following Saturday’s win, Kashiwa is now 5th with 33 points while Yokohama FC is 13th on 20 points.
Up Next for Kashiwa is a J.League Cup Semi Final on Wednesday 7, October 2020 against Yokohama FM, the side that beat them in the League last time out. Yokohama FM ran out 3-1 winners in a game that also saw Olunga score.
