The J1 soccer tournament started on the 23rd and the first six games were played on the 24th, with last season's champions Vissel Kobe getting off to a good start with a comfortable victory over Jubilo Iwata, who had returned to J1.

▽Vissel took the lead in the 5th minute of the first half with a volley shot by Yasuya Tamaki, and Daiki Sasaki scored a goal at the start of the second half.

Vissel won easily 2-0 and got off to a good start towards their consecutive victory.

Jubilo, who returned to J1 after a year from J2, had good saves from Eiji Kawashima, a former Japan national team goalkeeper who returned to the J League for the first time in 14 years, but the attacking team ended up scoreless.

▽FC Machida Zelvia, who won last season's J2 championship and are competing in J1 for the first time, drew 1-1 with Gamba Osaka.

Zelvia took the lead with a penalty kick in the first half and defended tenaciously even after getting a player sent off in the 15th minute of the second half, but in the 39th minute of the second half, Gamba's Takashi Usami, who came on as a substitute, scored a direct free kick and won the match. I missed it.

▽Avispa Fukuoka, who won the J League Cup last season, drew 0-0 with Hokkaido Consadole Sapporo.

▽Kawasaki Frontale came from behind to beat Shonan Bellmare 2-1 thanks to a goal from new player Ellison.

▽Albirex Niigata also came from behind to beat Sagan Tosu 2-1.

▽Cerezo Osaka vs. FC Tokyo drew 2-2.

The remaining two games of Round 1 will be played on the 25th.
