Matchday 28 2019 Season Preview – Tokyo Verdy v Montedio Yamagata

Verdy’s 29th game of the 2019 season is at Home to Montedio Yamagata at Ajinomoto Stadium. It’s the second home game of the home double header after last weekend’s 3-3 draw against Kagoshima United, this time Verdy are facing Montedio Yamagata on the back of the thrilling 3 all draw and see themselves 13th place in the table while Yamagata – after their win over Albirex Niigata (see Look At Our Opponents below), Yamagata currently sit in the play off zone in 6th place, this is one of the last double headers at home due to the fact the Rugby World Cup is taking place in Sept/Oct/Nov time with only 2 home games taking place in between 20th September and 2nd November with 1 Home game before the Rugby World Cup with the last 2 games of the season being a double header, in the head to head between Verdy and Yamagata – it was a 2-1 win for Yamagata at home, Verdy took the lead before the end of the first half all thanks to Koike Junki but Yamagata got back into the game when Sakamoto scored the first goal on the 60th minute with Yamagata scoring a very late goal thanks to Otsuki to give Yamagata all 3 points. Fingers crossed Verdy can get something from this game. LET’S FIGHT TOWARDS VICTORY.

Matchday 27 2019 Season Review – Tokyo Verdy 3-3 Kagoshima United


Matchday 27 2019 Season Review – Tokyo Verdy 3-3 Kagoshima United

Verdy sealed a 3 all draw in a exciting game for the neutral but probably not great for both managers, but Verdy came back from being 2-0 down to winning 3-2 in injury time but Kagoshima drew level in injury time so it finished 3-3, all 6 goals coming in the second half, to the game itself, it was into the second half when the first real chance of the game came as it was a Verdy corner in their new 50th Anniversary kits which look so wonderful by the way, they had a chance from the corner when it looked like Naoya Kondo got a touch of the ball but was cleared off the line but was cleared away, but it was Kagoshima who took the lead on the 57th minute after a Kagoshima player got the ball off a Verdy Defender and it was passed to Kagoshima player Yuichiro Edamoto who travelled into the Verdy box and put the ball past Naoto Kamifukumoto to make it 1-0 to the away side, now into the 74th minute when Kagoshima doubled their lead after a Kagoshima player Yong Thae Han was surrounded by Verdy players but he passed it to Taku Kayanuma who striked the ball past Kamifukumoto to make it 2-0 to the away side, but with 5 minutes to go the goals started to come for Verdy, Hiroki Kawano came into the box on the left hand side of the pitch and crossed the ball into the box for Leandro to smash the ball into the back of the net after the ball came off the cross bar and went into the back of the net to make it 2-1 with 5 minutes to go plus injury time but then 2 minutes later Verdy drew level to 2-2 after Yuhei Sato shot from about 30 yards out or so and though Joon Soo Ahn would get that but the ball bounced up and went into the back of the net to draw level, into injury time (minimum 4 minutes of injury time), Verdy took the lead for the first time in the game when a chip into the box by Rihito Yamamoto found a Verdy player on the right but his crossed was deflected up into the air but Hiroki Kawano was in the right place to put the ball into the back of the net to make it 3-2 to Verdy but with a few minutes left of injury time, Kagoshima drew level after some pinball action in the box but the ball was put into the back of the net to make it 3-3 with Yong Thae Han scoring the goal, but Kagoshima could of won the game with the away side getting a penalty in the 4th minute of injury time after Kondo lost the ball but fouled the Kagoshima player to give away the penalty, it was Yong Thae Han who was taking the penalty but he blasted the penalty over the bar and after the penalty was taken the ref blew his whistle for full time, a real let off for Verdy but a point is better then nothing.

Matchday 27 2019 Season Preview – Tokyo Verdy v Kagoshima United

Verdy’s 28th game of the 2019 season is at Home to Kagoshima United at Ajinomoto Stadium. It’s back to another double header at Ajinomoto Stadium with Kagoshima United and Montedio Yamagata visiting Ajinomoto Stadium in the next 2 weekends, it wasn’t a great double header of away games with a draw and a huge loss last weekend away to Kyoto Sanga and slided down the table a place into 13th, the Verdy players will want to get over that defeat by playing Kagoshima United and hoping to get a good result, although Kagoshima have had a good start to August with a win (see Look At Our Opponents below) over Chiba but Kagoshima have found life in J2 rather difficult as they are in a relegation dogfight with Tochigi and Gifu – they have 7 wins, 2 draws and 16 losses and were on a 6 game losing streak before the win last weekend – one of those wins was over Verdy, in the head to head in the 2019 season between Kagoshima and Verdy was in Matchday 17 where Kagoshima won 3-1 at home – 2 Goals from Yong Thae Han (8’ and 42’)and Ushinohama (40’) scored for the home team and Junki Koike scoring for Verdy (52’). Fingers crossed Verdy can get something from this game. LET’S FIGHT TOWARDS VICTORY.

Matchday 26 2019 Season Review – Kyoto Sanga 4-0 Tokyo Verdy


Matchday 26 2019 Season Review – Kyoto Sanga 4-0 Tokyo Verdy

Verdy suffered a massive 4-0 defeat away to Kyoto Sanga and on the back of a draw against Tochigi SC, it’s one of the worse defeats that Verdy has had, the other one was actually against Kyoto when Verdy lost 4-1 at home against Kyoto, to the game itself, the first chance of the game fell to Verdy on the 9th minute when a defence splitting pass found a Verdy player on the right wing and he passed it to Leandro who was free but he put the chance wide after he was in scoring distance but Leandro didn’t get the touch on the ball he wanted, but it was Kyoto who scored on the 16th minute after Juninho got the ball off a Verdy Defender and got into the Verdy box and Juninho gave the ball to Kazunari Ichimi who kept the ball away from 2 Verdy defenders and Ichimi’s shot seemed to have deflected off a Verdy Defender into the back of the net to make it 1-0, then a defensive mistake by Naoto Kamifukumoto after a sloppy pass to a Verdy Defender but the ball fell to Juninho to simply slot the ball into the back of the net to make it 2-0 to Kyoto only a minute later, 10 minutes later, it was all 3 points to Kyoto with a second goal of the game from Ichimi and Kyoto’s third goal, into the second half, it didn’t take long for Kyoto to make it 4-0, Takumi Miyayoshi wasn’t picked up by the Verdy defence and calmly put the ball past Kamifukumoto to inflict even more misery on Verdy, but finally the final whistle blew and the pain and misery was over for Verdy but what joy for the home team in Kyoto as they challenge for promotion. Hopefully Verdy can bounce back from this!

Verdy’s 27th game of the 2019 season is Away to Kyoto Sanga at Takebishi Stadium. This weekend is the second game in a double header of away games, after drawing 0-0 midweek away to Tochigi, now Verdy travel to Kyoto Sanga before another double header home matches against Kagoshima and Yamagata, but first up its Kyoto, Kyoto are currently sitting in 2nd spot and in automatic promotion spot even with a draw against Zweigen Kanazawa with a very late goal to seal a point (see Look At Our Opponents below) and Verdy drew 0-0 against Tochigi and Verdy went down a place to 12th but the points between the teams is so close then a win or a draw can move you up a place or two, Kyoto and Verdy have faced each other already this season and it was in Matchday 16 where it was a 4-1 loss for Verdy at home, Verdy scorer was Junki Koike (63’) – Kyoto’s goalscorers were Ichimi (13’), Fukuoka (18’), Koyamatsu (27’) and then Ando (89’) sealed all 3 points for Kyoto, fingers crossed Verdy can get something from this game.

Matchday 25 2019 Season Review – Tochigi SC 0-0 Tokyo Verdy


Matchday 25 2019 Season Review – Tochigi SC 0-0 Tokyo Verdy

Verdy got their first game of a double away matchday with a 0-0 draw against Tochigi SC, this was the first midweek matchday since Matchday 7 (Mito at Home) that Verdy played, to the game itself, the first chance of the game came from Tochigi after a cross into the box from Akira Hamashita found Masashi Oguro at the front post but the Verdy Defence stopped the shot from happening and cleared the ball away, but about a minute later, Tochigi had a corner and the corner was cleared by a Verdy defender but the ball found Kazuki Segawa who brought the ball down and he had a shot from outside the box but the ball hit the post and came back out, so unlucky for Tochigi, still very early on in the game, Tochigi had another chance, after a cross from Segawa found the head of Oguro but the Verdy defence put him off and his header went just wide of Naoto Kamifukumoto’s goal, but the pressure on the Verdy defence was put on the back burner when they had a chance not too long after Tochigi’s chance when a run by Kanya Fujimoto, he found Leandro and then he played it to Naoto Sawai who shot but went wide, now near to the end of the first half, it was a run to the Verdy box for Segawa with a shot that didn’t deceive Kamifukumoto and he saved it and was cleared away, into the second half now, with about 20 minutes to go, Tochigi had a chance but was easily saved by Kamifukumoto, then another chance from Hyun Yoo’s goal kick – the ball found Kaito Miyake but he put it over the bar, Verdy probably had the best chance of the half with some nice play eventually found Jin Hanato but a late tackle from Reiya Morishita stop the chance and was cleared away by Yoo the Tochigi GK, but nothing more of note happened chances wise so with 4 minutes of injury time, the ref blew the final whistle and it finished 0-0, decent game but it finished a draw.

Verdy’s 26th game of the 2019 season is Away to Tochigi SC at Tochigi Green Stadium. It’s a bit of a rare thing, a midweek game which is not on a public holiday, it’s another double header but of away games instead of a double header of home games, with this midweek game away to Tochigi and this Sunday it’s away to Kyoto Sanga, but first it’s away to Tochigi SC for Verdy, Verdy are on the back of 2 wins from 2 home games with beating Ehime FC and Machida Zelvia to put Verdy up a couple of places to 11th place while Tochigi SC lost to Kashiwa Reysol by 2 goals to 1 (see Look At Our Opponents below) and are currently in the relegation zone in 21st place, of course Tochigi and Verdy have played each other as we are into the second part of the season, it was Tochigi who visited Ajinomoto Stadium and came away with a 3-2 win over the Greens – Hayashi (15’) and Lee (31’) got the goals for Verdy while Osaki (13’), Oshima (77’) and Nishiya (87’) sealed the win for Tochigi in Matchday 4, fingers crossed Verdy can get something from this game.
