Japan international striker Hisato Sato fired home the sole goal to give Sanfrecce Hiroshima a 1-0 win over Kashiwa Reysol to claim their second Super Cup victory on Saturday.
Toshihiro Aoyama sent a cross from the left to the centre, where defender Hiroki Mizumoto headed to set up Sato's volley shot in the 29th minute.
"I knew that Mizumoto would give me the ball after Aoyama's cross. Mizumoto also knew I was his right side. But it was too good to score like that," said Sato, the top scorer last season, who won the Player of the Year award.
