Gamba Osaka vs Cerezo Osaka 29/7/2017
They call it the Osaka Derby. And you can expect some fireworks as Gamba will go all out to halt J League leaders Cerezo’s relentless march to the title. Cerezo, promoted after a division 2 playoff last
season, are four points clear at the top. For that to happen, Gamba would need to rely on their home
form, which isn’t quite top-notch. They have just three wins from their nine home games so far. Four of
the past five encounters ended in draws, the most recent in April, a 2-2 draw. Kenyu Sugimoto, who is
second on the scoring charts with 12 goals, grabbed both goals for Cerezo then.
