Sanfrecce Hiroshima reached second place after
Yojiro Takahagi's last-gasp goal sealed a 1-0 victory over Cerezo Osaka.

Takahagi waited until the 90th minute to fire the only goal of the game and lift Sanfrecce to within three points of leader Omiya Ardija, which lost 2-1 at Yokohama F. Marinos.

The fourth-placed club took a two-goal lead into the break thanks to
Marcos Marquinhos (22) and
Manabu Saito (36), with
Tomoki Imai's response on the stroke of full-time arriving too late to make an impact.

Urawa Red Diamonds is third but a 4-0 defeat at mid-table
Kawasaki Frontale
was hard to stomach for
Mihailo Petrovic's men.

Kengo Nakamura opened the scoring on 28 minutes, with Renatinho adding a second two minutes later, and Kawasaki was three goals to the good by the break thanks to
Masaki Yamamoto (43).
Yoshito Okubo's penalty four minutes after the break added insult to injury.

Kashima Antlers is on the slide after a 2-1 defeat at Kashiwa Reysol - a game decided by Cleo's second-half brace - while FC Tokyo picked up an impressive 3-0 win at Albirex Niigata.

A 1-1 draw at Vegalta Sendai did little to help Jubilo Iwata's battle against the drop but Oita Trinita remains bottom of the pile after a 3-1 loss at Shimizu S-Pulse.

Shonan Bellmar
claimed a 1-0 win at Vantforet Kofu.
