Matchday 42 Preview – Cerezo Osaka v Tokyo Verdy

Matchday 42 Preview – Cerezo Osaka v Tokyo Verdy

Tokyo Verdy’s 42nd game into the 2015 JLeague Division 2 season is Away v Cerezo Osaka, the last matchday in the J2 2015 season is upon us and Verdy still have something to play for in this last game, if the results go Verdy’s way and Verdy wins they will hopefully finish in a play off place – if not they will just finish out of the play offs, but whatever happens, what a season it has been for Tokyo Verdy, compared to the massive disappointment last season (2014) was, finishing in the top 10 at least is a massive achievement considering how the club is at the moment financially.
It’s been a strange time at Cerezo of late, Paulo Autuori resigned as Cerezo manager just last week, they pretty much got a playoff spot a while ago but results haven’t been great as of late, GM Kiyoshi Okuma has stepped in as Interim Manager – the last game between the 2 sides finished 1-1 right at the start of the season – Alan Pinheiro with the goal for Verdy
Good luck to the Verdy lads today, hoping that results go our way at least, fingers crossed for a playoff place
