92nd Emperor’s Cup: Quarter-Final Results

(Highlights of the 92nd Emperor’s Cup quarter-final between Nagoya Grampus and Yokohama F-Marinos. The sides couldn’t be separated after 120 minutes, and the tie came down to penalty kicks. After Jungo Fujimoto put Grampus’s first spot-kick wide of the left upright, players from both sides all converted until Yuji Ono stepped up in the fifth round to win the contest for F-Marinos. Seigo Narazaki, however, guessed correctly and dived low to his left to save. The match wouldn’t be decided until the eighth round of penalties, as Yuji Nakazawa confidently placed his penalty into the bottom left corner, and Grampus’s Hayuma Tanaka saw his spot-kick saved, sending F-Marinos into the semi-finals for a meeting with Kashiwa Reysol)
