Leandro winner against Reds moves Antlers closer to title

Leandro winner against Reds moves Antlers closer to title

Kashima Antlers opened their lead at the top of the MEIJI YASUDA J1 League table to seven points with a 1-0 win over Urawa Reds.

Go Oiwa’s men endured a scare last month when they succumbed at Yokohama F. Marinos, prompting the coach to urge his man to wrap up their title charge quickly.

The Japanese champions took a step closer to defending their title as they dominated the Reds, and eventually found the breakthrough through Leandro’s 80th-minute winner. 

It moves Antlers seven points clear of second-placed Kawasaki Frontale in the table, with the latter having a game in hand.
