On Friday, former Nissan chairman Carlos Ghosn abruptly announced — and just as abruptly canceled — a press conference as his defense against charges of financial misconduct continued.

On Saturday, the Nissan-owned Yokohama F. Marinos' defense seemed equally unwilling to show up at Tokyo's Ajinomoto Stadium as league-leading FC Tokyo romped to a 4-2 win, with Diego Oliveira netting twice and Kensuke Nagai and Na Sang-ho also joining him on the scoresheet.

"Marinos played their style, we played our own," said Tokyo manager Kenta Hasegawa. "Our players were aggressive on the pitch and helped earn this result. Marinos created dangerous scenes but we finished our chances."
