Jeonbuk Motors and Gamba Osaka will trade tackles on matchday six in Group H of the AFC Champions League group stage fixtures.

Jeonbuk picked up a 3-1 victory over Chiangrai United on Wednesday. Modou Barrow, Hong Jeong-Ho and Park Jin-Seong all got on the scoresheet to help the South Koreans secure progress to the knockout round.

Gamba Osaka ran riot in an 8-1 whitewash of Singapore-based outfit Tampines Rovers. Shuhei Kawsaki was the star of the show with a hat-trick in a game that also saw the J1 League side miss two penalties.

That victory moved Osaka up to nine points and they need a victory to keep their hopes alive to qualify as one of the best-placed second teams.
