Buriram is first in the group with 2-1-0 and 7 points. Gamba is last with 0-1-2 and just one point. Gamba is dying for a win here but that doesn`t mean they will get it. Buriram has surprised a couple of times already beating Guangzhou RF away and drew with Gamba away. At home they played even better beating Seongnam 2:1 with a very good first half performance. Buriram is no pushower anymore, the play regulary in ACL and improve every year. The whole Thai league improved in the last couple of seasons I would say. Money is invested in Buriram especially and the results are there. Buriram is undefeated in their last 6 ACL matches and I think it will stay like that.
Buriram has a good mix of Thai and foreign players but those foreigners like defender Seul-Ki(ex. Ulsan), defender Tunez(ex. Celta) and the Brazilian attackers Macena and Diogo(ex. Palmeiras) just give that extra quality.
Gamba Osaka has been absent from ACL since 2012 and returned this season but with bad results.
They got just one point from 3 matches and scored just one goal against Buriram. They have problems creating enough chances and their quick passing 1-2 game is not working till now.
Traditionally Gamba played very poorly in ACL away games since 2010 when they last won but picked 7 loses from their next 8 away games. It has been some time ago but the bad performances continue. Gamba still relies on their playmaker Endo but he is already 35. I don`t know who I would exclude from the Gamba team, maybe their scorer Usami. Patrik is also a good attacker but he will be suspended for this game.
The home team has all players available and with a win here would make a big step for the first 2 places.
Hot and humid weather is expected with 30°C +( Osaka 10°C) and will favour the hosts for sure, not that they need it as they are the better team.
