Matchday 25 Preview – Tokyo Verdy v Thespa Kusatsu Gunma (2016)

Matchday 25 Preview – Tokyo Verdy v Thespa Kusatsu Gunma

Verdy’s 25th game of the 2016 J2 season is at Home v Thespa Kusatsu Gunma at Ajinmoto Stadium, after the impressive result against Shimizu S-Pulse in midweek, its back to normal service of playing on a Sunday evening for Verdy as this time its 2 home games on the trot – first up is Thespa Kusatsu Gunma who currently sit in 22nd place and they visit Ajinmoto Stadium on the back of a 2-2 draw on Wednesday night, but Verdy will be happy after beating S-Pulse for the second time this season and will hopefully be on top form against the bottom of the table team but football can be a strange thing sometimes but let’s hope for a win. Verdy and Gunma have already played against each other this season in Matchday 10 and it finished 2-2 – Ibayashi and Sawai scored the 2 goals for Verdy. LET’S FIGHT TOWARDS VICTORY.
