Kashiwa Reysol captured their first-ever J. League title just a year after winning the second division with a 3-1 victory over Urawa Reds on the final day of the season on Saturday.

Reysol went into the match at Saitama Stadium with a one-point lead over defending champions Nagoya Grampus and two in front of Gamba Osaka, knowing that a win would guarantee them the championship but that anything less could be fatal for their hopes of becoming the eighth champion club in J. League history.
