Matchday 27 Preview – Kyoto Sanga v Tokyo Verdy
Verdy’s 27th game of the 2016 J2 season is Away v Kyoto Sanga at Kyoto Nishikyogoku Athletic Stadium, well Verdy’s last 5 results have really been up and down to say the least, the last result was against Roasso Kumamoto was a great result in the end and much needed 3 points and developed a gap between Verdy and the bottom 4 (Gifu, Gunma, Kanazawa and Kitakyushu) but hopefully Verdy will be looking up the table now rather than behind them – Kyoto is currently in a playoff spot (6th place) just 3 points ahead of Machida Zelvia in 7th place and they are 1 point behind Shimizu in 5th place, Verdy and Kyoto have already played each other in the 2016 Season with Verdy coming out of the game 2-1 winners on the Sunday, 19th June – Verdy scored both goals in the 2nd half thanks to Sawai and Ibayashi – let’s hope for another win. LET’S FIGHT TOWARDS VICTORY.
