Nagoya Grampus Eight 4 – Ulsan Hyundai 1 (Asian Champions League, May 6, 2009) Nagoya transferred their domestic form into the ACL. Yoshizumi Ogawa put Nagoyaahead with a 14th minute header and Yuki Maki doubled the lead eight minutes later, heading in a cross from Ogawa. Kim Shin-wook cut the lead with a header minutes before the break, but Davi scored early in the second half and Ogawa settled the matter with a left-foot shot from close range in the 71st minute.
