Matchday 24 Review – Shimizu S-Pulse 0-1 Tokyo Verdy

Verdy sealed the double over Shimizu S-Pulse with a hard fought 1-0 win over Shimizu and this win took Verdy a little bit farther away from the relegation zone – but Verdy really had to defend for their lives as Shimizu kept the pressure on as Shimizu had 11 shots on target compared to 3 that Verdy had but the difference that Verdy came away with the 3 points.
First chance of the game went to Shimizu but that went wide, the first real chance for Shimizu when they took a quick free kick when they saw Suzuki off guard but the Verdy GK scooped the ball away to keep it at 0-0, I couldn’t believe this next couple of chances went in at all – Shimizu corner – Shimizu players heads towards goal – hits the post then its sort of cleared away but another cross comes in from the right and its perfectly tee’d up to score but he hits the cross bar instead, Verdy had a decent chance thanks to Daisuke but the Shimizu GK had it covered, in the 2nd half Shimizu had another decent chance but Suzuki had it covered, but Verdy scored the only goal of the game – Yoshiaki Takagi got the ball from another Verdy player and Yoshiaki ran towards the Shimizu box without been touched and shoots into the bottom right hand corner to make it 1-0 Verdy – after everything Shimizu has thrown at Verdy, Verdy have taken the lead after 71 minutes, Verdy had to hold on in the last 15 minutes after Shimizu had a good few chances but to no avail.
