Matchday 6 2017 Preview – Fagiano Okayama v Tokyo Verdy

Verdy’s 6th game of the 2017 J2 season is Away to Fagiano Okayama at City Light Stadium. It’s been a decent start to the season for Verdy – 4 wins out of 5 games, but it’s another tough test in J2 for the lads against Okayama who are currently in 8th place, they won their last game against Gunma (see below) by 2 goals to 1 and have had a decent start to the season with 2 wins -2 draws and a lose, in the head to head between the 2 teams is as follows – 8 wins for Verdy, 3 Draws and wins for Okayama is 6. The last time both teams played at City Light Stadium was last season and it was a 1-1 draw with Kitawaki scoring a goal late on into the game, but fingers crossed Verdy can carry on the winning form or at least stay unbeaten. LET’S FIGHT TOWARDS VICTORY.

Look At Our Opponents –
Let’s have a look at Okayama’s last game against Thespa Kusatsu Gunma last weekend, Okayama beat bottom of the league Gunma by 2 goals to 1, but it was Gunma who got the scoring underway in the 40th minute thanks to Kazuma Takai but Okayama equalised in injury time of the first half, Okayama sealed the 3 points near the end of the game, with just under 10 minutes to go – Yuta Toyokawa stepped up and scored to make the final score 2-1 to Okayama. Strange fact in this game was a sub that came on just before half time but he was subbed almost near the end of the game.
