Matchday 12 2017 Preview – Tokyo Verdy v Yokohama FC

Verdy’s 12th game of the 2017 J2 season is at Home to Yokohama FC at Ajinomoto Stadium. After getting back to winning ways against a bottom half of the table side, this time, it’s a side that is currently top of the J2 table with 23 points and Verdy are currently 2 points behind them. Yokohama have had a good start to the season, as I said they currently sit 1st in the league with 7 wins (Matsumoto, Gunma, FC Gifu, Kyoto, Chiba, Kumamoto and Ehime), 2 draws (Nagasaki and Fukuoka) and 2 losses (Vortis and Zelvia), probably one of the toughest teams that Verdy will face this season. Let’s have a look at the head to head between the 2 sides, the last time these teams met each other was in the 2016 season with Yokohama coming out with a 2-0 victory at Ajinomoto Stadium, both goals came in the second half and in the last 30 mins – Ibba (66’) and Takuya Nagata (90’ +4’), Verdy and Yokohama will be playing their 22nd game against each other, the other 21 games look like this – Verdy wins 5, 7 Draws, Yokohama wins 9 – the biggest win of the 21 games is a 7-2 win for Verdy, that game happened in the 2011 Season, let’s hope Verdy can get something from this game. LET’S FIGHT TOWARDS VICTORY.
