Tampines Rovers will take one Gamba Osaka in the Group H match of AFC Champions League 2021 on 25th June at Lokomotiv Stadium. Tampines Rovers are keen to make Singapore proud in their debut AFC Champions League campaign, beginning with a good performance against Gamba Osaka, the 2008 winners.
Tampines Rovers vs Gamba Osaka Team Preview
Tampines Rovers finished second to Albirex Niigata in the Singapore Premier League in 2020. Gavin Lee’s team has only managed eight points in their last five domestic matches and things aren’t looking good for them.
They are coming off a 3-2 setback against Clement Teo’s Hougang United in the Singapore Premier League a month ago and would be looking to perform well here.
Gamba Osaka, on the other hand, qualified by ranking second in the league the previous season, behind Kawasaki Frontale. Their current league form appears to be terrible, as they are wallowing in the relegation zone in 17th position. Despite the difficulties they are currently experiencing in their league, they have managed to accumulate 10 points in their past five games under interim coach Masanobu Matsunami.
They defeated Kwansei Gakuin 3-1 in the second round of the Emperor’s Cup on Wednesday and would like to keep their momentum going.
