Japanese powerhouse Gamba Osaka have continued their great recent form with a 4-2 victory over Korean club FC Seoul in the Asian Champions League.

Gamba remain on top of the Group F table and are one game clear after recording their second win from two games and have scored seven times, stamping their authority on the group.

Masato Yamakazi fired the visitors ahead at the Seoul World Cup Stadium in the 12th minute and the score remained that way until half-time.

An equaliser came for the home side just eight minutes after the break through Jung Jo-gook who finished from inside the six-yard box.

Enter Gamba’s Brazilian star Leandro who then put together a brilliant hat-trick in 20 minutes of play.

His first was a header that came in the 60th minute from a Yasuhito Endo corner and he followed it up fourteen minutes later from close range to give the visitors a 3-1 lead.

Leandro completed his hat-trick seven minutes from time before Seoul grabbed a consolation second goal through Lee Sang-hyub late in the piece.
