Gamba Osaka 1-0 Shimizu S-Pulse

next
Gamba took three points on a very late Shinya Yajima goal but really could have taken this by three or four goals and were well-deserving of their victory. The home team racked up possession, shots, corners, and basically laid siege to the Shimizu S-Pulse goal before finally claiming the win with minutes to go!

Goalscorer Yajima was already setting his sights in goal as early as the 4th minute as Gamba took this game to their visitors from the start. In the 17th minute Hwang Ui-jo, hoping to say goodbye to the Gamba faithful with a goal, took a right wing cross with his back to goal and turned a couple of defenders inside out to create space but shot across the goal instead of at the target.

Into the 2nd half Masaaki Higashiguchi in the Gamba goal finally sawme action but he was barely troubled by long range shots and attempts that were wide of the mark.

As the game headed towards the final 15 minutes Gamba piled on the pressure and the away 'keeper did well to parry a Keito Nakamura shot, and was then beaten by a curling Hwang shot that struck a post and bounced clear, much to the relief of the S-Pulse defence. But that defence was finally breached in the 88th minute as Yajima latched on to a half-cleared ball and swept the ball back across the 'keeper and into the far corner to give his team the points.
