Matchday 17 2017 Preview – Matsumoto Yamaga v Tokyo Verdy

Verdy’s 17th game of the 2017 J2 season is Away to Matsumoto Yamaga at Matsu Park Stadium. It was the second defeat in a row for Verdy after the defeat to V-Varen Nagasaki last Saturday and the weekend before that was a defeat at home against Kyoto Sanga, this time Verdy are away again to Matsumoto Yamaga, this is the first game of the month of June, looking to the game, Yamaga are currently sitting in 13th place in the table with 22 points from the 16 games while Verdy currently sit in 7th place with 26 points. The last time these 2 teams met last season – Yamaga won both games and the scores were 4-0 and 2-0, the 2-0 game, the scores for Yamaga were Ishihara and Takasaki, the head to head between the 2 sides look like this – Verdy wins 1, 2 draws and Yamaga wins 5 (out of 8 games played against each other) so it doesn’t look too great for tomorrow, let’s hope the lads can do the job and get something from the game. LET’S FIGHT TOWARDS VICTORY.
