Matchday 14 2017 Review – Tokyo Verdy 3-0 JEF United Chiba

Verdy got themselves a big 3-0 win against JEF United Chiba but it could have been a different game if Chiba took their chances – but Verdy came out of the game with 3 goals and those came in the second half and kept a clean sheet as well so it was a big 3 points. To the game itself, the first couple of chances (one for each side) both goalkeepers did well to stop those chances, Chiba had a great chance after some lovely football in Verdy’s half and the chip into the box found Chiba player Funayama but he scuffed the shot over the bar – Chiba gone close, into the second half – Chiba went close again – after a cross into the box from the left the ball somehow found a Chiba player, he pulled the ball back to a another Chiba player who was running into the box and Chiba player Aranda hits the post with his shot. But it was Verdy who took advantage – after a run by Vieira – he passed it into the box for Alan Pinheiro and even if Alan had a Chiba DF trying to get the ball – Alan put the ball into the back of the net to make it 1-0 to Verdy, Verdy made it 2-0 about 10 minutes later after Kazuki Anzai made a run down the right and he crossed it to Yoshiaki Takagi who was held up by Chiba DF Jun Okano but Yoshiaki nut megged Okano and the Chiba GK just stood still as the ball went past him to make it 2-0. The third goal came from a long ball up field but Chiba had men forward so there was only at least 2 defenders up and Yoshiaki Takagi got the ball and he struck the ball and the shot just went under the cross bar and the goalkeeper couldn’t do anything about it – what a great win.
