Kawasaki Frontale 5-0 Ventforet Kofu

Frontale maintained their free-scoring pre-season form with a 5-0 drubbing of J2's Ventforet Kofu on Monday.

Renatinho, who scored two from the penalty spot on Friday, notched up two more today - the first yet another PK and the second following up after a decent initial shot from Kurotsu.

Chong Tese was next on the scoresheet, taking over spot-kick duties from Rena. And Taniguchi made it four with a trademark header from Tasaka's corner kick delivery.

With an aggregate scoreline of 14-1 from their pre-season fixtures so far (and with the likes of Kengo, Juninho and Inamoto still to return to the fold), there should be a fairly positive mood in the camp.

That said, it's hardly been the toughest schedule. And it's a little concerning that their first real test will come in a game that actually matters (in the ACL against Seongnam Ilhwa next Tuesday).

RENATINHO 11' (pen.), 15'
CHONG 18' (pen.)
