Kawasaki Frontale defeated fellow Asian Champions League representatives Nagoya Grampus 3-1 in J-League action.

A 23rd-minute goal from Brazilian midfielder Magnum got Nagoya off to a great start but it was short lived as his compatriot Vitor Silva equalised a minute later.

Within five minutes, Kawaskai found themselves in front when Hiroyuki Taniguchi netted and the match remained that way until the hour-mark when Korean striker Chong Tese essentially ended the contest with a third for the home side.
