Matchday 26 2017 Preview – Zweigen Kanazawa v Tokyo Verdy


Matchday 26 2017 Preview – Zweigen Kanazawa v Tokyo Verdy

Verdy’s 26th game of the 2017 season is at Away to Zweigen Kanazawa at Ishikawa Athletics Stadium. It’s not been a great few weeks for the club with only getting 2 points from the last 5 games, I bet it’s not been fun if you’re a Verdy fan/player or on the management team, let’s hope this game against Kanazawa can lift some spirits and get those smiles back on people’s faces with a win, fingers crossed I hope the lads get that for everyone’s sake. Though the odds are in Verdy’s favour – because Verdy have already played Kanazawa in the 2017 season and won 2-1, in matchday 11, Kanazawa travelled to Ajinomoto Nishigaoka and Kanazawa were defeated by 2 goals to 1, it was Kanazawa who scored first just after half time (Koichi Sato 51’) but in the last 15 minutes of the game, it was Akira Ibayashi (78’) and Alan Pinheiro who got the winning goal on the 83rd minute to seal all 3 points. Let’s hope for a victory from the lads. LET’S FIGHT TOWARDS VICTORY.
