Matchday 16 2017 Review – V-Varen Nagasaki 1-0 Tokyo Verdy

Verdy fell to their second defeat in a row after a 1-0 defeat Away to V-Varen Nagasaki at Transcosmos Stadium with the only goal coming after 29 minutes after the defeat to Kyoto and now V-Varen, Verdy fall down to 7th place in the league. To the game, the first chance feel to Verdy, it was a free kick to Verdy which was put into the box but was headed away but found a verdy player at the end of the box on the right and was passed to Alan Pinheiro who shot wide, V-Varen scored not too long after, the ball found Yu Kimura in the box and he beat 2 Verdy players and didn’t fall over but he shot at goal and it went past Shibasaki to make it 1-0 to V-Varen, another chance fell to Nagasaki, but the chance hit the post to keep it at 1-0 to the home team. It was a close chance for Verdy after a Verdy player got the ball off a Nagasaki player and the ball feel to Vieira who got the ball off another Nagasaki player but put it wide after a bit of a tussle between both of the players, it was a great chance for Verdy after some lovely football between 2 Verdy players but it was Yoshiaki who had the shot and it went wide with a touch from the Nagasaki GK, another great chance for Verdy from a corner – the ball found Vieira at the back post and headed it towards goal but it hit the cross bar and it was cleared away – very unlucky but it finished with a 1-0 win for V-Varen Nagasaki and Verdy move down a few places
