Competition: 26th round of J-League 2019

Yokohama Marinos closed August with a series of opposite styles. Specifically, they started the month with three lost matches. However, in the remaining 2 rounds of August, coach Postecoglou's team regained their spirit with convincing victories against Nagoya Grampus (5-1 win) and Gamba Osaka (3-1 win).

Up to now, Yokohama Marinos temporarily ranked 3rd in the overall table with 45 points, inferior to the second place of Kashima Antlers and 7 points behind the top of Tokyo.
