Tampines Rovers will be looking for an improved result here after a 2-3 S League loss in their previous game against Hougang United.
The Stags have not been the best at stopping their opponents recently, although they’ve also found ways to convert their own chances into goals. Looking at their last 6 games, The Stags have been punished defensively in 5 of them while also scoring in 6 of those matches.
In that match, Gamba Osaka managed 47% possession and 7 shots at goal with 1 on target. For their opponents, Shonan Bellmare had 15 shots at goal with 3 of them on target.
In the course of their 6 most recent matches, Masanobu Matsunami's Gamba Osaka have slotted home a total of 5 times, giving them a goals per game average of 0.83.
Team News: Tampines Rovers
Taufik Suparno (Unknown Injury) and Irfan Najeeb (Unknown Injury) won’t be available for Tampines boss Gavin Lee.
Team News: Gamba Osaka
Gamba Osaka boss Masanobu Matsunami has not got a full squad to pick from. Won-ho Shin (Collarbone fracture), Jun Ichimori (Hamstring Injury) and Haruto Shirai (Cruciate Ligament Injury) will not be playing here.
Our pre-match assessment is that Gamba Osaka are likely to see a lot of the ball and convert quite a few goal-scoring opportunities.
At the same time, Tampines Rovers will be up against it to get goals of their own but we do fancy them hitting back at some stage.
We’re therefore anticipating a pretty comfortable 1-3 margin for Gamba Osaka at the end of this one.
