Matchday 2 2017 Preview –Tokyo Verdy v Oita Trinita

Verdy’s 2nd game of the 2017 J2 season is Home to Oita Trinita at Ajinomoto Stadium. First home game for Verdy in the new season and it’s against the J3 Champions in Oita Trinita, Oita will be happy with the start back in J2 after the win against Avispa (see below at “Look At Our Opponents”) – they (Oita) got relegated from J2 in the 2015 season after finishing 21st in the table but then Oita won J3 after finishing 2 points ahead of Tochigi SC to come straight back up to J2 for the 2017 season. Fingers crossed the new management team in charge can start off the first home game with a win. LET’S FIGHT TOWARDS VICTORY.
