Urawa Reds boss Volker Finke was happy to get a point at home against Gamba Osaka on Saturday.

The Reds remained in second place on the J-League table after the 0-0 draw with Finke praising his undermanned team for a great effort.

"Sometimes when you don't win at home you're very disappointed, but today, no," the German said.

"We were without Tatsuya [Tanaka], we were without [Robson] Ponte and [Tsukasa] Umesaki, but we still had most of the opportunities, and I'm very happy about that.

"I think Gamba play at a very high level. Therefore, I think this was one of the best games I ever saw in the J.League. I can live with this."
