Urawa Reds v Sepahan

Urawa Reds v Sepahan

Urawa Reds defeated Sepahan in a rematch of their ACL final showdown, this time 3-1 in front of a partisan 30,000 crowd at Toyota Stadium.

On a crisp night in the suburbs of Nagoya, the result never looked in doubt once Yuichiro Nagai converted a low cross from the ever-dangerous Takahito Soma's low cross on the half hour mark.

Though the Iranian team twice hit the bar, once just after the interval, the visitors never looked likely winners.

Urawa's Brazilian marksman, Washington, converted from a narrow angle 10 minutes in to the second half and an own goal from Hadi Aghily effectively settled the outcome. Sepahan did register a consolation just before the end after a mistake by the hapless Marco Tulio Tanaka, but it is Urawa who will face AC Milan on Thursday in Tokyo.
