Gamba Osaka, on the other hand are a spot above at 13th with 26 points under their names. Their three game winning streak over Oita Trinita, Consadole Sapporo and Vegalta Sendai came to an end, as they’ve now lost consecutive games to Yokohama FM and Tokushima Vortis.  With both Shimizu Pulse and Gamba Osaka being more towards the inconsistent side of things lately, we can expect the upcoming contest to be a cagey affair.
