Kei Chinen and Tatsuya Hasegawa found the net Monday as Kawasaki Frontale remained unbeaten in the Asian Champions League with a 2-0 victory over Filipino side United City FC.
The J-League champions lead Group I with four straight wins following a closer contest against a United City outfit they thrashed 8-0 three days earlier.
Chinen opened the scoring in the 18th minute at Tashkent’s Lokomotiv Stadium, beating keeper Anthony Pinthus from a tight angle. Hasegawa added the second in the 78th minute, tapping in from close range.
In the day’s other Group I clash, South Korea’s Daegu FC defeated Beijing Guoan 3-0 to remain three points behind Kawasaki in second place.
