A game to forget for S-Pulse!
Reysol took their last chance during the first half and had only to control the game in the second half taking S-Pulse flat footed almost at will, especially on the left side.
Reysol was clinical and mature, S-Pulse was febrile and childish.
More was hoped from the Shimizu guys after the incredible win last Wednesday.
Tired legs?
Let’s hope for a better show next game!
The season is still not safely away!
