In soccer J1, two games of the 16th round were played, and Sanfrecce Hiroshima won the Nagoya Grampus 1-0.

Sanfrecce's players and staff were infected with the new coronavirus, so the match against Gamba Osaka on the 25th of this month was canceled, but in the second half of the match against the Grampus on the 28th, Gakuto Notsuda decided a free kick directly.

Sanfrecce have increased their points to 24 and have tentatively moved up to 4th place.

Urawa Reds, who had not won eight games, drew 0-0 with Avispa Fukuoka and did not win on the 28th.
