Matchday 36 2017 Review – Tokyo Verdy 3-1 Montedio Yamagata


Matchday 36 2017 Review – Tokyo Verdy 3-1 Montedio Yamagata

Verdy sealed their second 3-1 win with the 3-1 coming against Montedio Yamagata (their first 3-1 win was a couple of weekend’s ago when Verdy beat Machida Zelvia 3-1 at home as well) but it’s another good win and pretty much keeps them in the top 10, let’s have a look at the game, it was a chance for Verdy first off with Alan Pinheiro’s shot went over the bar, it was a good chance for Yamagata’s Number 31 Kaito Anzai but Shibasaki palmed it away, Yamagata almost made it 1-0 after a great chance from Yuhei Sato but it hit the outside of the post and went behind for a Verdy Goal Kick, but Verdy made it 1-0 after a chance by Koki Anzai was saved by the Yamagata GK but the ball came back out to Pinheiro and he then put the ball into the back of the net but Yamagata equalised 6 minutes later from a corner – it came off a Verdy playerand into the back of the net to make it 1-1, but 10 minutes later, a great cross into the box from the right hand side found the head of Douglas Vieira who headed it past the out coming Yamagata GK and headed it past him into the back of the net to make it 2-1, Vieira made it 3-1 after a Verdy player got the ball off a Yamagata player and he passed it to Vieira and he was left untackled as he ran into the box and put the ball into the back of the net on the Yamagata GK’s left , another great result for the boys in Green.

Matchday 34 2017 Preview – Nagoya Grampus v Tokyo Verdy

Verdy’s 34th game of the 2017 season is at Away to Nagoya Grampus at Paloma Mizuho Stadium. 9 games to go and it’s another away game, this time it’s away to 7th place Nagoya Grampus who have not been in good form the last few games, it wasn’t helped that Nagoya lost 1-0 to Cerezo Osaka in the 4th Round of the Emperors Cup with a few changes so a few players were rested for this weekend’s match, in the league Nagoya have not getting the results lately but they are still in the top 10 of the table with Verdy, there is only 2 points between the 2 teams so this game is a big one to stay in the top half of the table, the last time these 2 teams met was in Matchday 18 (Sat 10th June) and it was Verdy who came out on top with 2 goals from Douglas Vieira (65’ and 67’) – Sugimori got Nagoya’s only goal of the game. Fingers crossed Verdy can get something from this game with Nagoya not having a great time of late. LET’S FIGHT TOWARDS VICTORY.
