Matchday 5 2017 Preview – Tokyo Verdy v FC Gifu

Verdy’s 5th game of the 2017 J2 season is at Home against FC Gifu at Ajinomoto Stadium. On the back of the 2-0 win against Renofa, Verdy now face a FC Gifu team who haven’t had a great start to the season only having 2 points from the 4 games they’ve played – they lost to Yamaga and Yokohama and drew with Nagoya and Renofa, the last few games against each other has ended in different ways – last game of the 2016 season for Gifu – they had to win to save themselves from relegation and beat a already safe Verdy by 4 goals to 2 but a few months earlier Verdy drew 1-1 with Gifu at Ajinomoto Stadium. Let’s hope for another win after having such a wonderful start to the 2017 season. LET’S FIGHT TOWARDS VICTORY.

Look At Our Opponents –
Let’s have a look at Gifu’s last game against Yokohama FC last weekend, it wasn’t a good result for FC Gifu at home against Yokohama FC as they went down to a 2-1 defeat, it did start off so well for Gifu as they took the lead on the 19th minute thanks to Yoshihiro Shoji but near the end of the first half Yokohama equalised thanks to Kensuke Sato, 20 minutes after Yokohama scored the first goal, Yokohama went ahead for the first time in the game when Yosuke Nozaki scored on the 62nd minute.
