Kashiwa Reysol’s ability to hold out for the entire 90 minutes of a game has been all too rare in recent contests.

Nagoya Grampus enters this match following a 0-2 J. League Cup victory against Vissel Kobe.

There was only one name from Nagoya Grampus on the scoresheet: Noriyoshi Sakai (23′, 75′).
