Gamba Osaka will face Kochi United in the 1/32 match of the Japan Football Cup final. Our sports portal gives a forecast for the game.
Gamba played well in the previous two matches in the J-League and won two victories. First, she coped with Albirex (3:1), and then defeated Fukuoka with a score of 2:1. However, it is worth saying that before that the team gave out a series of five defeats. Now the club from Osaka occupies the 15th place in the Japanese championship table (18 clubs compete in the top division). The gap from the relegation zone is still only one point.
This club represents the fourth strongest division of Japanese football. This season, the team played nine matches in the tournament and scored 12 points. With this result, it is located on the 10th line in the tournament table. In the first round of the Japan Cup, Koti United met with Iwama on the road and beat the opponent with a score of 2:1. The fate of the meeting was decided by extra time.
Statistics and figures:
- Bookmakers consider Gamba Osaka the favorite of the match.
- Previously, the teams had not met with each other.
- Gamba has only two wins in the last 11 matches in all competitions.
I don't think that the fourth division club will offer serious resistance to Gamba. I will bet on the victory of the club from the top division. A higher level of performing skills should be the key to success.
