It’s now a double header of away games now for Verdy, the first away game is against FC Gifu on Autumnal Equinox Day (also known as Shūbun-no-hi), Verdy kept their unbeaten run going with a 2-2 draw at home to Roasso Kumamoto with Sato and Vieira on the score sheet for the boys in Green and find themselves in the playoff zone still after the draw but Gifu have not been doing so great, they are currently 19th place with Gifu being on a 10 match losing streak since Matchday 24 where they lost to Yokohama by 3 goals to 0, Gifu’s last win was actually in Matchday 23 when they beat Ventforet Kofu 3-1, their last game was a 2-1 defeat to Tokushima (see Look At Our Opponents below), the last time both teams played each other was this season when it was a 0-0 draw in Matchday 8, let’s hope Verdy can keep up the unbeaten run and get something from this game, fingers crossed.

Matchday 33 2018 Season Review – Tokyo Verdy 2-2 Roasso Kumamoto


Matchday 33 2018 Season Review – Tokyo Verdy 2-2 Roasso Kumamoto

Verdy kept up the unbeaten run going with a 2-2 draw at home to Roasso Kumamoto, both goals came in each half with 2 goals coming in the first 15 minutes of the game and then Verdy scored about 10 minutes into the second half and then Kumamoto scored their second goal with about 15 minutes to go of the game. To the game itself, Kumamoto took the lead on the 7th minute when a Verdy player lost the ball, Byong Jun An picked up the loose ball and then from about 40/45 yards out, he shot and it seemed like Naoto Kamifukumoto had it covered but it went under him and went off the post and went into the back of the net to make it 1-0 to Kumamoto but it wasn’t too long till Verdy got on level terms when some lovely passing from Verdy – the goal came from a short pass from Ryota Kajikawa found Yuhei Sato in the box and his shot and Sato curled his shot into the top right hand corner to make it 1-1. Into the second half now, it was 2-1 to Verdy when the goalscorer passed it to half time sub Jin Izumisawa and he crossed it into the box across the pitch and Douglas Vieira was in the right place at the right time and tapped the ball into the back of the net to give Verdy the lead early on into the second half, Verdy were given a penalty after Takuya Sonoda was judged to of handled the ball from a shot in the box, Vieira took the penalty but the Kumamoto GK Minoru Hata saved the penalty and palmed it away, that penalty miss came back to haunt Verdy when Kumamoto scored with about less than 15 minutes to go when a shot by Byong Jun An was blocked by a Verdy player but the ball found Kumamoto Midfielder Tatsuya Tanaka put the ball past Kamifukumoto on his right hand side to make it 2-2 and then Kumamoto had one last chance but Kamifukumoto saved it to keep it at 2-2 and the final whistle went and the points were shared.

Matchday 31 2018 Season Review – Zweigen Kanazawa 0-1 Tokyo Verdy

Verdy sealed another 3 points with a tight 1-0 win over Zweigen Kanazawa and with the win over Kanazawa, it puts Verdy up one place to 5th and pulling away from a few teams below them at the moment, to the game itself, it was a a sub before the start of the second half for Verdy when Yuki Kagawa came onto the field replacing Naoya Tamura, the first chance of the game came for Kanazawa when a long ball into the box found no one there originally but Kanazawa got the ball back when Taiki Kato controlled the ball and then crossed it back into the box where Yuki Kakita rose above the Verdy DF and headed the ball wide and Kakita was dangerous again with his head when a cross from Shunya Mori found the striker in the box and his header went straight into the hands of Naoto Kamifukumoto, but it was Verdy who broke the deadlock when a loose ball was hit up field and the ball went to Yong Jick Lee and he, Douglas Vieira, Leandro and second half sub Kagawa cross the ball into the box and the ball found Vieira in the box and his half volley went into the back of the net to make it 1-0 to the Away side, Vieira was causing the Kanazawa DF some problems when a long ball up the field found Vieira who was being played onside – he ran up towards the goal, his shot was saved by Yuto Shirai and then the rebound came to Lee and his shot was saved as well and was cleared by the Kanazawa DF, but Kanawa probably had their best chance of the game when a cross from Mori found second half sub Kyohei Sugiura but Sugiura put the ball wide – a real golden chance for the home side but wasn’t taken, there was another chance for Kanazawa when Kato fluffed his shot only for the ball to be cleared away by the Verdy DF and the game finished 1-0 to the Away side.
