Gamba Osaka vs Nagoya Grampus Prediction

Nagoya Grampus are favorites on paper but the visitors' recent struggles have seen them fall from the AFC Champions League spots.

The hosts, by contrast, have impressed in recent weeks and will be looking to register a third consecutive victory. The two sides are likely to each play on the front foot and we are backing the spoils to be shared in a low-scoring draw.

Prediction: Gamba Osaka 1-1 Nagoya Grampus
