Matchday 13 2017 Preview – Kamatamare Sanuki v Tokyo Verdy

Matchday 13 2017 Preview – Kamatamare Sanuki v Tokyo Verdy

Verdy’s 13th game of the 2017 J2 season is at Away to Kamatamare Sanuki at Pikara Stadium. Verdy played out their first ever draw in the 2017 Season against top of the league team Yokohama FC and it was a decent point in the end, but this weekend Verdy face second off bottom Kamatamare Sanuki who haven’t been in top form at the moment, there last game was a defeat to Kyoto Sanga (see Look At Our Opponents below), Sanuki only has 1 win to their name currently and that was against Shonan (3-0 they won). Let’s have a look at the head to head between both teams, the last time these teams faced each other was in September of the 2016 Season where Verdy were 3-2 winners over Sanuki – Verdy goalscorers were Vieira with 2 and Yoshiaki Takagi with the other goal, Sanuki’s goalscorers were Tetsuya Kijima and Kodai Fujii, Verdy and Sanuki have faced each other very few times with Sanuki been in the JFL /Shikoku League for a lot of their history – so out of the 6 games, it looks like this – Verdy wins 3, 0 Draws and Sanuki 3 wins – so it’s all equal, let’s hope Verdy can get something from the game though. LET’S FIGHT TOWARDS VICTORY.

Look At Our Opponents –
Let’s have a look at Sanuki’s last game against Kyoto Sanga last weekend, the only goal of the game came in the first half and Kyoto got that only goal thanks to Marcus Tulio Tanaka on the 36th minute, in the game Sanuki had some decent chances but ultimately lost out to Tanaka’s goal that came from a Kyoto Free Kick and it came off the Sanuki cross bar after a bit of a commotion in the box and Tanaka was there just to header the ball past the scrambling Sanuki goalkeeper.
