Player to watch: Yuki Ohashi

Yuki Ohashi has impressed in his first season at Sanfrecce Hiroshima. The former Shonan Bellmare player has bagged seven goals this campaign, with an assist. Ohashi has eight direct goal involvements in his last 10 appearances across all competitions, so it'll be interesting to see how he matches up against Iwata's defence.
