GOLDEN WEEK – Matchday 10 Preview – Thespa Kusatsu Gunma v Tokyo Verdy (2016)

Matchday 10 Preview – Thespa Kusatsu Gunma v Tokyo Verdy

Verdy’s 10th game of the 2016 J2 seaosn is away to Thespa Kusatsu Gunma, after the awful defeat to Mito Hollyhock and losing Alan Pinheriro to injury last weekend, here’s hoping the players will be focused and fully thinking about the game on Friday, Verdy are facing a Gunma side who are in such awful form right now, in the last 5 games (as shown below) have only picked up a single point but have lost the 4 games by a single goal, they don’t concede much but don’t score often as much either, where as Verdy have gotten 3 points from their last 5 games, fingers crossed it will be a Verdy win. The history of head to heads between each other is massively in Verdy’s favour, since December 2014, Verdy have won 14 times – Draws 6 – Gunma wins 4, the largest win for Verdy was a 5-0 thumping of Gunma in March 2007 where Funakoshi, Hulk (2), Tsuchiya and Diego scored with no reply, biggest victory for Gunma was winning 3-0 in May 2009.
