It can be seen that Urawa Red Diamond still has a lot of problems that need to be solved in the near future.

With the elimination from the National Cup and the AFC Champions League arena, the goal of the home team this season has almost ended when in the domestic league, the team from Saitama is only ranked 11th in the rankings. However, the distance between them and the position to play relegation play-off is only 4 points, so Urawa Red Diamond needs to be more cautious in the next matches.
