Matchday 29 Preview – Tokyo Verdy v Yokohama FC (2016)

Matchday 29 Preview – Tokyo Verdy v Yokohama FC

Verdy’s 29th game of the 2016 J2 season is at Home v Yokohama FC at Ajinomoto Stadium. Well the midweek game against Kanazawa really did Verdy the world of good as they beat the 2nd off bottom club by 4 goals to 1 and with that win, Verdy shot up a few places in the table to get away from the relegation zone, Verdy currently sit in 15th place, Yokohama are currently sitting in 10th place after their 1-0 result against leaders Sapporo on Thursday Night – it’s going to be a very tough test for Verdy against Yokohama and it’s the return of Kazuyoshi Miura to Ajinmoto Stadium – also known as “King Kazu” by a lot of people – he is still playing at the age of 49 and he scored and set up another goal (I’m sure he did at least) against Cerezo Osaka last weekend, head to head wise, Verdy and YFC drew 1-1 at the NHK Spring Mitsuzawa Football Stadium, it was Chugo who got Verdy a point in April (Sunday 17th), let’s hope for a draw or maybe even a win? Hope so. LET’S FIGHT TOWARDS VICTORY.
