We will set a direction for Urawa Reds-Team Manager Mischa  

Comment from Team Manager Mischa the day before the J. League 32nd Sec match against Sanfrecce Hiroshima
Tomorrow’s match will be another very tough match for us. It will be even harder as we will fight against the top team. But, I am confident that present Urawa Reds will be able to have a good match against such a strong team. Unfortunately, we have not been able to have good results over the last four matches. However, our team performed well in reality during the three matches namely the ones against Vegalta Sendai, Serezo Osaka and Kawasaki Frontale. In order for a team to maintain the top ranking in the standings for a sustained period of time, it requires them to have maturity, good luck and many other things. We will be playing against such a team tomorrow. However, having said that, I know Urawa Reds has developed as a team so quickly. For this reason, I am sure we can pull out the best from ourselves to play against our opponent tomorrow.

As for Sanfrecce, I think they will have a very tight defensive formation like China’s Great Wall with Hisato Sato at the front with 5 players behind followed by other 4 players at the back. Even when I was heading Sanfrecce Hiroshima, they had such a tight defense together with dangerous attacks.

Nonetheless, we can fully exert our strong attacks as we have been doing lately. The team has developed further even in the last few weeks by absorbing what we have been trying to achieve. Therefore, I am confident that our team will play neck and neck against Sanfrecce Hiroshima tomorrow. Recently, our team has been playing better soccer than our opponents. For this reason, I am sure our players will perform well tomorrow. I think there will be over 40,000 spectators in the stadium tomorrow. I wonder how our supporters will react if we only play like our opponent team does. It is my style to play a risky game. We will play our own style of soccer as usual. Sanfrecce Hiroshima may take advantage of the risks we take. But, we will dare to take some risks to achieve the best result for us.
