Shun Nagasawa and Ademilson each scored a brace as Gamba Osaka powered past Sanfrecce Hiroshima 6-3 on Sunday in the second leg of their League Cup quarterfinal for a 7-4 aggregate win.

After Gamba salvaged a late 1-1 draw in Wednesday’s first leg, Nagasawa cancelled out Yuki Nogami’s second-leg opener with an exquisite flick behind his leg and put his team in front right before the break, slotting home after Hiroshima keeper Takuto Hayashi only managed to save Koki Yonekura’s toe-poke into Nagasawa’s path.
