Gamba Osaka joined J. League rivals Kashima Antlers in the knockout phase of the Asian Champions League on Tuesday after a 2-1 win at home to South Korea’s Suwon Bluewings.

Needing only a point to advance, Gamba fell behind to Jose Mota’s header near the hour mark at Expo Stadium, but a superb strike from Takahiro Futagawa made it all square before Takashi Usami snatched the winner deep into injury time.
