Mu Kanazaki grabbed a first-half double to propel Nagoya Grampus to a 4-0 win over Al Ain of the United Arab Emirates in a rearranged Asian Champions League match on Tuesday night.

Kanazaki struck the opener in the 27th minute and added his second with virtually the last play of the first period, before an own goal from Ibrahima Keita and a stunning Jungo Fujimoto free kick put Grampus out of sight.

Victory moved the J. League champions within three points of Group F leaders FC Seoul, their next opponents, with three games played.
