Gamba Osaka entertain Nagoya Grampus at the Suita City Stadium in J1 League action on Saturday. The two sides are without a win in their last three league outings.

Gamba Osaka suffered a 4-1 loss in their J League Cup fixture last Saturday while Nagoya emerged victorious in their cup fixture. They overcame second-division side Tokushima Vortis 2-0 at home.

Both sides are struggling in the lower half of the table and will be hoping to secure a win here to get their season back on track.

Gamba Osaka vs Nagoya Grampus Prediction

The Nerazzurri have been in good goalscoring touch and have scored seven goals in five games. The visiting side have scored just four goals but have been solid at the back, conceding only three, the second-best defensive record in the league.

With both teams struggling to find form at the moment, the game will likely end in a low-scoring draw.

Prediction: Gamba Osaka 1-1 Nagoya Grampus.
