*GOLDEN WEEK* Matchday 11 2017 Preview – Tokyo Verdy v Zweigen Kanazawa

Verdy’s 11th game of the 2017 J2 season is at Home to Zweigen Kanazawa at Ajinomoto Field Nishigaoka Stadium. It was back down to earth with a bump for Verdy after the 1-0 loss against Avispa but it’s quickly onto another game as part of Golden Week in Japan, this game at Nishigaoka Stadium is against 20th place Zweigen Kanazawa, Kanazawa are currently third off bottom of the J2 table after getting 8 points from the 10 games so far, worse defeat so far is a 4-0 loss to Mito and their best win so far is a 2-0 win against bottom of the league Gunma, let’s have a look at the head to head between both teams, the last time Verdy and Kanazawa faced each other was last season at Ajinomoto Stadium and Verdy came out with a 4-1 victory – Ibayashi, Sawai (2) and Pinheiro scored for Verdy, while Tsujio was the scorer for Kanazawa, Verdy and Kanazawa have faced each other 4 times in the past – Verdy have won once (4-1 2016 Season), 2 draws and 1 Kanazawa win (3-0 in the 2015 Season), fingers crossed Verdy can get back to winning ways. LET’S FIGHT TOWARDS VICTORY.
