Gamba Osaka’s away fortunes have not been great. Apart from the win over Sagan Tosu, there has been little success on the road for Masanobu Matsunami’s men. Yet, they should have enough in the arsenal to get a decent point against Tampines, who are experiencing the first taste of the AFC Champions League. However, Gamba Osaka are a veteran in this competition after having won the title back in 2007-08.
Total goals under 2.5
The AFC Champions League involving Gamba Osaka in the past have seen a flurry of goals but Matsunami might be cautious of suffering a defeat in the first game of the 2021 season. The cautious approach from the visitors is likely to intensify the struggles for Tampines.
Both teams to score – yes
The struggles for Gamba Osaka have been primarily limited to scoring goals on the road. The team has had no issues when it comes to scoring at home. However, the superior quality of players is likely to help the visitors get at least a goal with Tampines unable to keep a clean sheet in four consecutive home games.
