At the end of their game, hosts Vissel Kobe ran out comfortable winners with four goals, while their opponents suffered their second league defeat of the season.

Iniesta and his Vissel Kobe teammates could not follow the big win over Sagan Tosu with another win after they were beaten at home by Kawasaki Frontaleduring the week.
