Gamba Osaka 0-4 Cerezo Osaka (Levain Cup 2nd leg) (aggregate score 1-4, Cerezo Osaka progress to semi-final)

next
Gamba Osaka came into this 2nd Leg Levain Cup quarter final with a 1-0 lead, and that away goal, but it all went wrong very early on in the game. A cleared attack, fell to an opposition player. A pass forward was deflected into the path of forward Hiroto Yamada, and his snap shot went in off the post - almost hitting both posts on the way!! 1-0 24 minutes.

The goalpost came into player for the second goal also, as Yamada's shot -covered by Masaaki Higashiguchi in goal - came back off the post, allowing the follow-up to be poked into an empty goal. 2-0 half time, and now 2-1 on aggregate with Gamba needing two goals to win the two-legged tie, after Cerezo picked up two away goals.

The 2nd half began well for the home team, who now had to open up the game looking for goals, and there was some desperate defending to stop Shu Kurata scoring early on but, just as Gamba seemed to getting back into the game, a clearance fell kindly for Naoyuki Fujita on the edge of the area and his first-time shot made it 3-0 to the bad guys! And it got worse, as Gamba continued to leave gaps at the back, some close pressing from the goal kick saw the ball stripped from the Gamba defence and Riki Matsuda, just on as a substitute found the gap between 'keeper and post and it was game over! 4-0 on the night, 4-1 on aggregate.

Team - Higashiguchi, Yanagisawa (Takao, 63), Miura (Yajima, 78), Suganuma, Fujiharu, Ideguchi, Yamamoto, Okuno (Onose, 46), Kurata, Leandro Pereira (Patric, 63), Yamami (Usami, 63)
