Nagoya defeated Malaysian club Johor DT 1-0, with Hiroyuki Abe scoring the game’s only goal on the hour mark. Their goalkeeper Mitchell Langerak maintained a clean sheet in the first game against Johor Darul Ta’zim and is certain that his club will win for the second time in a row.
They are among the favorites to advance to the Round of 16, and a win would solidify their position.
