Matchday 20 Review – Omiya Ardija 0-2 Tokyo Verdy

Omiya Ardija 0-2 Tokyo Verdy

Tokyo Verdy shocked the J2 League leaders by winning 2-0 away at the NACK5 Stadium, Omiya were unbeaten at home before Sunday’s game, this was a total shock for everyone including me!
Few chances for the Verdy team, Weslley coming back into the team after coming back from injury and Tamura in the side while Koki Anzai and Fukui were on the bench.
The match started out with Omiya being the better team but Sato pulled off a great save at the start after it looked like Omiya would score, Verdy took the lead on the 28th minute thanks to a goal from Shuto Minami, the goal was from a Omiya Defensive mistake and Misao went onto attack the Omiya goal but he passed it to Sugimoto who hit a shot from just a few yards from the D but the keeper saved it and pushed it away but Minami was there to shoot the ball past the Omiya GK 1-0 Verdy.
I really don’t know what to say about the 2nd goal, what a strange goal it was, Tamura seems to chip the ball and the Omiya GK was in 2 minds of what to do so and he was beaten and Verdy went 2-0 up! After 2 loses before, this is a really welcoming win by Verdy and another tough test this weekend against Avispa.
