Gamba Osaka 2-1 Kashiwa Reysol

next
Gamba went into this game knowing that a loss could drag them into a relegation fight, but that fear was put to rest early as a Takashi Usami gave Gamba Osaka a 3rd-minute lead over visitors Kashiwa Reysol. Shunya Suganuma powered home a header from another Usami free kick 23 minutes later and the home team were on their way to a vital and well-deserved victory.

In between the goals the game was played at Gamba's pace and Masaaki Higashiguchi in the Gamba goal was hardly bothered by two half-hit shots that he cleared up efficiently. When the second goal came it was Suganuma's first J1 goal in eight years, and he celebrated accordingly! So, 2-0 at the break and it looked as if Gamba were cruising to a well-earned, and vital three points.

10 minutes after the restart, any thoughts o taking it easy were shocked out of the Gamba defence when Higashiguchi saw his left-hand post struck from close range, and this woke up Gamba, to remind them they need to keep concentrating! Indeed, with five minutes to go of normal time, after a quick break down the left Kashiwa Reysol pulled a goal back and the final minutes suddenly got interesting, but the home team held on for a win in this six-pointer!
