Matchday 21 Preview – Giravanz Kitakyushu v Tokyo Verdy (2016)

Matchday 21 Preview –Giravanz Kitakyushu v Tokyo Verdy

Verdy’s 21st game of the 2016 J2 season is Away to Giravanz Kitakyushu at Honjo Stadium, after the disappointment of losing 1-0 Away to Cerezo Osaka, it’s another away game for Verdy, this time it’s against Giravanz Kitakyushu who are currently 2 places below Verdy but Kitakyushu will be in a very happy mood with last weekend’s win against Chiba – they will be hoping to get another win and drag themselves out of the relegation zone as well, Verdy have to make sure to at least get away from that relegation zone – so a win against Kitakyushu is vital to move up that table today, on another note – it’s half way through the 2016 season and Verdy see themselves in the bottom 5 with 20 points from 20 games so far – it’s been very disappointing at the moment but there is another half of the season to go so let’s hope it will improve, fingers crossed.
The head to head between each other looks like this – after playing each other 13 times, Verdy Wins 8, Draws – 1, Kitakyushu wins 4, so who knows where the 14th match will go, hopefully it will go to Verdy. LET’S FIGHT TOWARDS VICTORY.

Here is the Giravanz Kitakyushu team that won 2-1 against JEF United Chiba last weekend, considering where Kitakyushu and Chiba are in the table, this is probably one of the shocks of the season so far, it started off so well for Kitakyushu on the 25th minute when Striker Kazuki Hara made it 1-0 to Kitakyushu, Kitakyushu made it 2-0 on the 76th minute midfielder Koki Kazama scoring that goal, but Chiba reduced the deficit to 1, Chiba’s goal scorer was the Striker Elton but it was too late for a comeback and Kitakyushu got all 3 points
