Gamba Osaka 3-0 Dalian Shide
Asian Champions League Group Round

Gamba Osaka 3-0 Dalian Shide
GO: Endo 48min, Magno Alves 56min, 71min

The game took place tonight at Gamba's Banpaku (Expo 70 Commemorative) Stadium against the China side Dalian Shide. First half was 0-0, as Dalian Shide were scrapping for counter attacking moments. But Gamba were playing with care even as they went forward, not allowing Dalian to set up promising opportunities via Jankovic (Dalian's biggest threat).

It was the second half that saw movement on the board, when Endo converted a penalty kick. The penalty was given after defender Liu Yu took down Kaji as he dashed into the box.

Then it was two from current ACL top scorer Magno Alves. The first, Futagawa's through pass meeting well for Magno to finish. The second was from Futagawa again, this time with some passing inside the box.

Magno Alves, Endo, Kaji, IenagaKaji's wife just gave birth to a baby (I don't know if it's a girl or boy) this very day, so as you can see from the pic the goal celebrations were the now predictable baby-rocking dance.

It was important to win this one of course, but even more convincing because they were able to hold the opponent at 0. Gamba are currently at the top of the table thanks to the 15-0 result from the game against Da Nang.
