Matchday 40 Review – Matsumoto Yamaga 2-0 Tokyo Verdy

Verdy fell to a 2-0 defeat away to Matsumoto Yamaga, with only 2 games to go in the 2016 J2 Season, Yamaga had the first chance of the game but it was wide of the Verdy goal and then minutes later another chance went past the post, but the opening goal came on the 23rd minute after a cross into the box found Ishihara who put it past Suzuki, then Yamaga went 2-0 up after Taira made a error and then Takasaki went up the field and then scored the 2nd goal, Verdy had a decent chance at the end of the 1st half, in the 2nd – Verdy really went close as the Yamaga GK had to make a good save to keep it out then Suzuki had to be wary of another Yamaga chance but the Verdy GK got it clear, Verdy had another good chance from a curled shot but the Yamaga GK put the ball over the bar, another chance by Verdy had some great play but it didn’t lead to much but the Yamaga GK getting the ball easy, there was a great chance for Verdy from a free kick by Futagawa – it was probably one of the best chances of the game, it came off the crossbar, but Yamaga won 2-0 and have caught up to Sapporo at the top of the J2 Table – going to be a interesting end to the season and Shimizu very close behind and could go top if both Sapporo and Yamaga slip up in the last couple of games.
