Spy Report for Tonight's Game
Like the Okayama team previously, Cerezo Osaka had planned to stay in Mito's Daiichi Hotel, as the team flags were in the window. Very inexpensive but notoriously poor quality, and probably not offering the best rest. Probably after seeing the conditions, I saw that the team bus pulled into a nearby slightly less expensive yet much better hotel lot at about 7:30 PM. Could the 8 hour daylight ride plus whatever stress and frustration cause a negative impact on tonight's match?
