Matchday 9 Preview – Tokyo Verdy v Mito Hollyhock (2016)

Matchday 9 Preview – Tokyo Verdy v Mito Hollyhock

Verdy’s 9th game into the 2016 J2 Season is at “Home” against Mito Hollyhock at Komazawa Stadium, after a deserved draw away to Yokohama FC last weekend, its back to normal service, well it seems normal to me to play on a Saturday afternoon anyway considering I was non league football with a Saturday 3pm kick off is the norm here in the UK, moving on – to the opponents – Mito are not in great form at the start of the 2016 season with only 1 win from 7 games and currently have 5 points (1 win and 2 draws) and are 18th place (4 points behind Verdy who are in 15th), the history of the 2 teams playing against each other dates back to the 2006 season (I can’t go back any further back then that) where Mito and Verdy played each other twice in the season where Verdy and Mito both won the Away games (Mito won 2 and Verdy won 2 as well) – overall its Verdy wins – 13, Draws – 4, Mito wins – 6 from 23 games played, looking at the history of head to head, it looks good for a Verdy win, but fingers crossed it will be a win all the sameand can lift themselves up the table and into the top 10. Fight Towards Victory!
