Matchday 15 2017 Preview – Tokyo Verdy v Kyoto Sanga

Verdy’s 15th game of the 2017 J2 season is at Home against Kyoto Sanga at Ajimomoto Stadium. Verdy got themselves back to winning ways after the midweek win over JEF United Chiba, now this is the second of 2 home games, this time against 16th place Kyoto Sanga – Kyoto currently have won 4 games, drawn 5 and lost 5 out of 14 games – the last game Kyoto did play was on Wednesday night against Mito Hollyhock (see Look At Our Opponents below) and they drew 1-1. Let’s have a look at the head to head between both clubs – both clubs started playing each other back in 1998 – there has been a few seasons when both clubs were in separate leagues and met each other in a cup competition – here is the head to head between Verdy and Kyoto – Verdy wins 10 – draws 6 – Kyoto wins 13 – the biggest victory for both clubs was a 5-0 win in the 2013 season for Kyoto and Verdy won 5-0 in the 2003 season – let’s hope that Verdy can get something from this game tomorrow. LET’S FIGHT TOWARDS VICTORY.
