Emperor’s Cup 3rd Round Preview – Yokohama F. Marinos v Tokyo Verdy

Verdy face off against Yokohama F Marinos at Nissan Stadium in the 3rd Round of the Emperor’s Cup. It’s another break from J2 League and onto Cup duty away to a on form J1 team in Marinos – they currently sit in 4th place in the 2nd Stage of J1 after they finished 11th in the 1st Stage – they currently sit 8th overall at the moment in the combined table (or whatever you want to cal it), the last time these 2 teams faced each other was in November 2008 and Marinos came out 2-0 winners but the game before in May of the same year (2008) Verdy won 3-2 at Home – the Head 2 Head looks like this (since 1998) – Marinos Wins – 11, Draws – 3, Verdy Wins – 5, fingers crossed Verdy will cause a shock and be in the next round. LET’S FIGHT TOWARDS VICTORY.
