Matchday 17 Review – Tokyo Verdy 1-1 FC Gifu (2016)

Matchday 17 Review – Tokyo Verdy 1-1 FC Gifu

Verdy drew 1-1 with FC Gifu in front of just over a 3,000 crowdat Ajinomoto Field, the way the stats go it seems a draw was a fair result, I bet FC Gifu fans were probably a lot happier getting a draw maybe, to the game – Verdy had a great chance on the 23rd minute when a Verdy corner came to Vieira and his head is going towards goal but a Gifu DF headed it off the line, still 0-0, after the 25th minute, Verdy has a decent chance but Inoue puts it just wide, on the 44th minute Verdy get themselves a penalty – no doubt for the ref he pointed to the spot, Masaki Chugo steps up to take the penalty, Chugo sends the GK the wrong way to make it 1-0 Verdy, but Gifu started stronger from the restart and scored within 4 minutes of the 2nd half getting underway – a cross into the box fell to Masanori Abe and he blasts it into the back of the Verdy net to make it 1-1, it was a nervy end to the game when Gifu got the ball from Inoue (I think), Gifu got it up the field and got a neat pass into the box and it’s passed to Tatsuya Tanaka who scuffs his shot – such a golden chance for Gifu to win it but he puts it wide, but Verdy had a great chance just after that but the Gifu GK pulled off a save and so it end’s 1-1, decent game in my eyes.
