Matchday 4 2017 Review – Renofa Yamaguchi 0-2 Tokyo Verdy

Verdy got their third win in a row after a 2-0 win against Renofa – it’s another great result for the lads in Green as it keeps Verdy up in the top 5 of the early J2 Table. To the game itself, Verdy had a early chance but the chance by Daisuke Takagi put his shot over the bar, the next chance for Verdy came from a corner – the corner came in and Alan Pinheiro headed it back and then Akira Ibayashi stabbed the ball with his foot into the back of the net after he escaped from the Renofa defender and it was 1-0 Verdy early on into the game, Renofa had a decent chance but it was cleared by the Verdy defence – Verdy had a very close chance but Kaz Anzai’s shot crashed off the cross bar, so very close for a second goal, Verdy got their second goal after a long ball up field – Pinheiro ran into the box but was fouled inside the box for a Verdy penalty – Pinheiro stepped up and took the penalty, the Renofa Goalkeeper got a hand to the ball but he couldn’t do much more then touch it and it was 2-0 Verdy and that killed off any chance Renofa getting back into the game, another great win for the boys in white.
