Gamba Osaka to Win

Last season’s runners up have not had luck in the J1 League this time around, but they showed signs of life as they finished second in Group H of the AFC Champions League. With two wins and a draw in their last three league outings, form is on their side as they take on the challenge of Avispa Fukuoka. Meanwhile, the hosts could not be in worse form,  losing four games in a row. A win for Gamba will put them on the path to redemption and one step out of the relegation slots, an eventuality they will be dying to realize.

Total Goals Under 2.5

Avispa Fukuoka has scored 23 goals in their 21 matches. However, they have only scored three goals in their last five outings, the worst in the league across this period. While Fukuoka’s overall tally does not seem so great but it shines in comparison to Gamba Osaka’s productivity in front of the goal. Gamba has scored a paltry 7 goals this season, and have the worst scoring record in Japanese top-flight football. Both teams have had struggles in front of the goal and it looks improbable they provide a goalscoring extravagance for the fans and neutrals.

Both Teams to Score: No

While their attackers have floundered, Gamba Osaka’s defence has remained resolute. It is evidenced by the 14 goals they have conceded, coming down to less than a goal per match. Only Nagoya Grampus in the top-five has a better goals-against tally this season. With Avispa Fukuoka having trouble scoring regularly, anticipating both sides to hit the back of the net looks unlikely.

Avispa Fukuoka vs Gamba Osaka Fixture Preview

Avispa Fukuoka

The first half of the campaign witnessed Avispa Fukuoka flying high in the J1 League. However, as the season has progressed, they have tumbled down the points table. Such has been their fall from grace that dreams of AFC Champions League were ripe in the fans, but not so much now as they struggle in 11th place. Shigetoshi Hasebe’s men have floundered and it can be linked with the loss in form of Emil Salomonsson and Bruno Mendes, their top scorers and goal creators.

Gamba Osaka

A lot was expected from Gamba Osaka this season but nothing has come to fruition as they would have expected. Their title challenge lies in waste owing to their lack of proficiency in the opposition’s third. Such is their plight that Vissel Kobe forward, Kyogo Furuhashi, is leading the scoring charts with 14 goals, twice the amount of goals the who of Gamba Osaka squad has managed this campaign. They have enough in the tank to overcome the relegation battle but need to dig deep to avoid the ignominy.
