Yogyakarta: Nagoya Oceans advanced to the Knockout Stage of the AFC Futsal Club Championship Indonesia 2018 in style after defeating Vamos FC 4-0 to seal top spot in Group A on Sunday.
There was, however, cheer for Vamos despite the defeat as the home side also advanced into the quarter-finals on goal difference ahead of Dalian Yuan Dynasty FC of China PR.
In a lively atmosphere at the Gor Uny, Vamos supporters came in droves and made their presence felt as they urged the home team on against the three-time champions.
But it was Nagoya who had the first chance in the third minute when Kiyoto Yagi sent in a cross but Hoshi Shota failed to time his header.
Vamos responded immediately with Marvin Alexa Wossiry breaking down the right but his shot flew wide of the post.
A minute later Vamos activated the power play with Dennis Guna Bawana filling in for goalkeeper Al Fajri Zikri but their plan fizzled out as Nagoya stayed firm.
