Matchday 14 2017 Preview – Tokyo Verdy v JEF United Chiba

Verdy’s 14th game of the 2017 J2 season is at Home against JEF United Chiba at Ajimomoto Stadium. Saturday’s game was the second draw of the season and yet it’s the second draw in a row as well, funny that, anyway, next game is a very interesting one, as Chiba currently sit in 12th place in the table but are 4 points behind Verdy who are in 4th, who knows how this game will go on really as both teams have got a close record against each other regarding wins, Chiba’s last game was a 5-0 thumping of V-Varen – you can find out about that game and what the team was by looking just below this (Look At Our Opponents) as per usual. Well the head to head between these two started back in 1998 and having almost played against each other for almost 10 years (3 years Chiba was in a different league to Verdy – 2006, 2007 and 2009 season), the head to head’s look like this – Verdy wins 11, 8 draws and Chiba wins 13, fingers crossed Verdy can get something from this big game and stay in that top half of the table. LET’S FIGHT TOWARDS VICTORY.

Look At Our Opponents –
Let’s have a look at Chiba’s last game against V-Varen last weekend, Chiba battered poor V-Varen Nagasaki by 5 goals to 0. It was only 1-0 at half time after Takayuki Funayama scored after 6 minutes, but the goal fest came in the second half when Koki Kiyotake got a hat-trick with goals in the 46th, 55th and 65th minute and to finish the scoring off Funayama got his second goal in the 79th minute so it was a fun night for those Chiba fans, here is the team that beat V-Varen with 5 goals and kept a clean sheet as well.
