A crap result. The home side thoroughly deserved their three points. A game to learn from, then forget. Takahara had a header cleared of the line early on, and Gamba's second came from a saved penalty which Rafinha was the first to reach, so with a little luck it may have gone a different way. But it didn't. And the longer the game went on the less and less we looked like scoring. Very few chances created, with the late consolation coming after a free kick which Osaka couldn't clear.

May write more if I get time after work tomorrow, but got stuff to do right now.
