J-League Division 1 -- Gamba Osaka VS Urawa Red Diamonds

Livescore | Match Prediction & Tips| Asian Handicap Odds|Line-ups& H2H Stats



Gamba miss only back-up goalkeeper Kosei Tani to injury. Gamba made six changes on Wednesday night to draw away at Shimizu S-Pulse in the League Cup. Genta Miura scored the goal.


Reds considered Yokuke Kashiwagi fit enough to start last weekend but he looked less than 100% and was replaced not long after the hour mark. They still miss Fabricio to a long term injury, but he is in light training. Reds went down 1-0 at home to Jeonbuk in the Asian Champions league on Wednesday night.



Suspended: None

Doubtful: None

Injured/Unavailable: Kosei Tani (dislocated shoulder).

Doubtful: None

Injured/Unavailable: Fabricio (knee surgery)



Gamba went down 3-0 at Sanfrecce Hiroshima last weekend, going 2-0 down within 8 minutes before taking control of the game with huge possession and more goal attempts, but to no avail. With no finishing they conceded again while chasing the game late on. Despite the scoreline last weekend Gamba controlled long parts of the game but were stifled by a team playing eight or nine defenders at times – and fair enough, there were winning 2-0 – and until Gamba can make overwhelmingly high possession statistics count in goals they will struggle to get wins against the more defensive teams. Meanwhile, at the other end Gamba are conceding too many goals and need to decide the best system and players to stem that flow. There seems to be no panic in the squad, but sometimes there appears no urgency either. Better finishing – and Hwang Ui-jo and Ademilson have the ability – and they will rise up the table.


Reds went down 3-0 at home to Yokohama F.Marinos. Reds looked lost, especially in defence. Perhaps having eyes on their coming Asian Champions League games? Kashiwagi started despite being not 100% and he was replaced late in the game. Martinus and Kenyu Sugimoto came on as late substitutes but had little impact on field as the Reds defence left wide open spaces for players to use. It was clear to see at times that all five or six defensive players on certain moves all gravitated to the ball – the third goal is a perfect example. F.Marinos were not actually that good but the scorer was left with literally half a field to receive the ball in. Their heads were definitely elsewhere in that game and with his visit to Gamba Osaka between two ACL games, I expect a similar display, lacking in intensity.


Gamba look good but cannot finish and then leave gaps to concede. Reds have their eyes on the ACL. Perhaps, finally Gamba can score a few goals to prove the worth of their system and take the win here.



With Reds not turning up and Gamba creating chances I see a few goals here as the home team finally take their chances but at least pride wakes up Reds and allows them to make some attacks that take advantage of a Gamba defence that is not up to scratch. Gamba continue to attack and look for goals even when they are winning, and I do not expect that to stop. We could see a 3-1 or 4-2 type game here!



In J1 matches between these two teams last season Gamba won away and drew at home.
