Cerezo Osaka 2-2 Gamba Osaka

next
Gamba Osaka brought home a point after a late equaliser from Shu Kurata leveled the scores, but could have won it in normal time after Hiroki Fujiharu had opened the scoring in the 57th minute. Ryo Hatsuse saw a bullet of a volley blocked in the 13th minute, but that was the highlight of a cagey 1st half.

Fujiharu finally broke the deadlock when he latched on to a slick move that had started with a throw-in and gone through four players, and four touches in a few seconds before the left wing back added the final, decisive touch.

With 20 minutes left on the clock Kenyu Sugimoto finally showed what he is getting paid for with a sidestep and a blast into the roof of the net to level the scores. Minutes later the same player saw a header saved by Masaaki Higashiguchi before the centre forward made a less than perfect connection with a Souza cross to fool the Gamba 'keeper and give Cerezo the lead in the 86th minute.

Then came the late drama as Kurata swung his left boot at a ball that had been bouncing around the area after a corner. Lovely finish, for the goal, and to the game. 2-2, shared points, and the teams stayed locked together on points in J1.


Team - Higashiguchi, Miura, Fabio (Niwa, 61), Kim, Hatsuse (Doan, 55), Ideguchi, Endo (Izumisawa, 85), Fujiharu, Akasaki, Kurata, Nagasawa
