Gamba boss Nishino will attack from the start

Gamba Osaka coach Akira Nishino wants his side to apply early pressure in tonight's Asian Champions League final. Taking a three-nil lead into the second leg at Hindmarsh Stadium, Nishino believes it is important to attack early and not rest on their advantage.

"Three goals is a good advantage and to use this advantage to get the first goal is very important," Nishino said.

"As soon as the kick-off starts, it's going to be the case, so in order to play Gamba-style soccer, we'll have to absorb the pressure and conquer the physical games," he told the ABC.
