Grampus Fall to First Home Loss in League

A lethargic first half performance proves too hard to overcome as Nagoya slip up against Kawasaki, a result that sees them dispossessed of top spot in the league table. (And about time too. Now perhaps teams will concentrate their efforts on downing Urawa and Kashima again. )

In a game that saw both Yoshimura and Yoshida rested, Nagoya got off to a slow start that saw them trailing 1-2 at half time. Although they improved in the second half and had several chances to get an equalizer, they could not make them count and slipped to another defeat.

Nagoya:
Seigo Narazaki
Shohei Abe, Milos Bajalica, Takahiro Masukawa, Takashi Miki
Magnum, Naoshi Nakamura (Toshiya Fujita 70), Kei Yamaguchi (Keita Sugimoto 56), Masaki Fukai (Ogawa 56)
Frode Johnsen, Keiji Tamada

Kawasaki Frontale:
Eiji Kawashima
Hiroki Ito, Shuhei Terada, Yusuke Igawa
Satoru Yamagishi, Kazuhiro Murakami (Yusuke Tasaka 80), Kengo Nakamura, Hiroyuki Taniguchi, Kosuke Kikuchi (Tomonobu Yokoyama 89)
Juninho, Chong Tese (Masaru Kurotsu 62)
