Y. Yanagi was the last player to score for the away team. Tochigi haven't scored a league goal in the last 186 minutes. The Tochigi goalkeeper Shuhei Kawata is collecting clean sheets like a laundry worker. It's been 270 league minutes without conceding a goal, and counting.

The supporters enjoyed Tochigi's previous game versus Machida Zelvia (placed 6th), a Emperor Cup 2-0 win played at home.

A draw for Tochigi before that, at their own venue hosting Kyoto Sanga (0-0).
