Gamba Osaka form and stats

The story so far for the visiting team on their J-League travels is 1 win, 3 draws and 1 defeat.

205 minutes! That's how long the Gamba Osaka goalkeeper Jun Ichimori and his defense have shut out their league opponents.

Silva and Kwon scored in Gamba Osaka's previous match, the home game against Vissel Kobe that ended 2-0. A victory against Vissel Kobe as mentioned above, but the margin of victory could have been bigger as Gamba Osaka hit the posts three times. Kwon was the top performer of the team in that game with a match score of 8.45. The defender Kwon scored one goal, hit the woodwork once and won 6 of 6 duels.

Preceding that match was the 0-0 draw at home vs Consadole Sapporo.

Gamba are the outsiders in this one, but not by much. Their performance in similar games (being the away team and moderate outsiders) is four wins, two draws and two defeats. From a total of eight matches.

A quick return to home after this game, as Gamba Osaka are hosting Kashima Antlers in the Nabisco Cup only four days away.

The attacking power of Gamba Osaka when travelling is not overwhelming with 4 goals scored from 5 league matches away.
