F.C. Tokyo 3-1 Gamba Osaka

Gamba went in to this away game at the leaders of J1 with an unbeaten run to look back on but were unfortunate to leave the match empty-handed in the end as Kosuke Onose's fine early opener was responded to by the hosts with three goals in just six goal attempts to win what was, in the end a closely-fought match, belying the 3- scoreline. Onose's goal was from a classy pass over the defence to the far post, where the scorer was ghosting in unmarked. He controlled, allowed a bounce and then blasted home from close range.

Hwang Ui-jo came close to adding a second goal just after the half-hour mark as he tried to flick home at the near post, while appearing to get taken down from behind, too. Neither a goal or a PK came about, though and moments later Tokyo were back in it. By the time the ball was noticeably slowing on the waterlogged field and hindering Gamba's patent passing game and an attack on the left saw uncertainty of the ball's course and a defender slipping before the cross was half-cleared, but the fortune favoured the home side as the ball fell to Kensuke Nagai who blasted from close range. Masaaki Higashiguchi in the Gamba goal looked to have made the save but the ball managed to find it's way in off the gloves of the unfortunate goalkeeper.

It was Nagai again, with his second of the game, who gave his team the lead as he managed to get a head to an inswinging cross that gave Higashiguchi no chance at his left-hand post, then somehow, just before the hour mark the home team were 3-1 up as Diego Oliveira saw his left-foot shot go in off the 'keeper's hand and a post.

Gamba still had 30 minutes to try to salvage this match, however, and Ademilson had his chance in front of goal before Hwang looked to be heading for the second goal, but Akihiro Hayashi got a hand to it to keep the score down. With time running down Tokyo's defence was tested again with a Genta Miura shot blocked, then the follow-up from Keito Nakamura was again beaten away before the ball was headed desperately out for a corner. But the home team's parked bus held out to finally take the points and keep them top of the league and end Gamba's fine run of points.
