Gamba Osaka 2 - 3 Nagoya Grampus
Shonan Bellmare 2 - 1 V-Varen Nagasaki

Shimizu S-Pulse 0 - 0 Kashima Antlers
Júbilo Iwata 0 - 3 Kawasaki Frontale
Cerezo Osaka 1 - 1 Yokohama F. Mainos 

The team of the week - Kawasaki Frontale
After a poor start to their Champions League campaign, the J League 2017 champions would have been desperate to kick off the new season with a win. That is exactly what they did also in convincing style with a 3-0 win over Júbilo Iwata. All three goals coming from crosses and headers clearly showing you where the team's strengths look like being this season.  

The goal of the week - Keigo Higashi 
I picked this goal as it was good build-up play and feel Higashi deserved the luck of it finding the back of the net. (46 seconds in) 

Player of the week - Kengo Nakamura
My player of the week goes to Nakamura as he helped his Kawasaki Frontale side to a 3-0 win with a goal and two assists. (pictured above)
