Brazilian winger Mateus’ brace got Nagoya Grampus off to a winning start in the new J. League campaign on Sunday, with a 2-1 away win over promoted Avispa Fukuoka.

Mateus netted just four minutes into the game at Best Denki Stadium with a fine solo effort and calmly added the second in the 55th minute. An 83rd-minute own goal by Yutaka Yoshida forced a nervy end to the game but the away side staved off a late Avispa foray to secure full points.
