Urawa went into the game at Saitama Stadium in crisis mode after firing manager Takafumi Hori on Monday — less than five months after he had led the club to the Asian Champions League title for its first piece of silverware in 10 years — following a disastrous start to the J. League campaign that yielded only two draws and three defeats.
