Matchday 25 Review – Tokyo Verdy 1-2 Thespa Kusatsu Gunma

Verdy are a bit weird when it comes to playing teams in the top/bottom half of the teams at the moment but football can be a funny thing sometimes with these sorts of things but ultimately its another defeat for Verdy and still being in the bottom half of the table. To the game, Verdy though they had scored in the 12th minute aftera Verdy player vollied it towards goal and the Gunma GK plamed it back out and Daisuke Takagi picked up the ball and put the ball past the Gunma GK but was rightly called Offside, on the 24th minute Lim got his marching orders after getting 2 Yellow Card and Verdy were down to 10 men for the rest of the game, but the game got a lot better in the 2nd half with all 3 goals – Verdy scored the first goal of the game after the ball was cleared up the field to a Gunma player who tried to clear it with the Gunma GK come running out but they got mixed up but Yoshiaki Takagi turned and shot straight towards the goal with the Gunma GK just nowhere near getting the ball to even try and save it – it was Verdy 1-0 up but then 2 minutes later Verdy conceded – Verdy seem to slack off after they score – well the Gunma goal came from goalscorer Yuko Takase running into the box without been challenged and the ball slid past Suzuki into the bottom right of the net to make it 1-1, only 9 minutes later Verdy threw the game away after a clearance from Suzuki I think, it fell to a Gunma player and he passed it off to Yuya Yamagishi to run into the box and he shook off a tackle by a Verdy DF and then past Suzuki to slot into the back of the Verdy net to make it 2-1 to Gunma – that’s how it finished at Ajinmoto Stadium.
