Matchday 23 2017 Preview – Shonan Bellmare v Tokyo Verdy

Verdy’s 23rd game of the 2017 season is Away to Shonan Bellmare at Shonan BMW Stadium Hiratsuka. It’s been a funny sort of results the past few games (Ehime game and the Kumamoto game that I’m mostly looking at) but it was a good point against Okayama last weekend at Home with the equaliser from Taira came as a relief to actually get something from the game after hitting the crossbar and the Okayama GK making some great saves, but this game against the league leaders will be a very tough game, even though Shonan got knocked out of the 3rd Round of the Emperors Cup, they still are on a decent run last month and the start of July but let’s hope Verdy can put a stop to that, but Shonan and Verdy have already played each other earlier on in the season, Matchday 7 to be exact, Shonan came away with a 3-2 victory even though Verdy scored the first goal of the game – Kikuchi scored 2 and Dinei scored the 3 goals for Shonan and the Anzai brothers scored the Verdy goals. Fingers crossed Verdy can get a good result from this game. LET’S FIGHT TOWARDS VICTORY.
