Matchday 11 2018 Season Preview – Omiya Ardija v Tokyo Verdy


Matchday 11 2018 Season Preview – Omiya Ardija v Tokyo Verdy

Verdy’s 11th game of the 2018 season is Away to Omiya Ardija at NACK5 Stadium. Verdy’s last game (In Matchday 10) was a big result with a 3-0 win over Mito Hollyhock, goals from Hatanaka, Vieira and Pinheiro sealed the 3 points and put Verdy into the play-off spot early days into the season, next game up for Verdy is a way game to Omiya Ardija, Omiya got relegated from J1 in the 2017 by finishing bottom of the league and came down to J2 with Niigata and Kofu (Verdy has already faced Kofu and drew 0-0), the last time these 2 teams faced each other was in the 2015 season where they faced each other 3 times – twice in the league and one in the Emperors Cup, in the league it’s one each with Verdy winning the away game 2-0 (Minami and Tamura scored) while Omiya winning their away game 1-0 (Tomiyama scored) with Omiya winning the Emperors Cup game 3-1 (Pinheiro scored for Verdy while Izumisawa and Watanabe scored for Omiya). Really hope the boys in green can keep up the good start to the season and hopefully get something from the game. LET’S FIGHT TOWARDS VICTORY.

Verdy got a big 3-0 win over Mito Hollyhock with goals from Shinnosuke Hatanaka, Douglas Vieira and Alan Pinheiro, let’s have a look at the game, it started off so well for Verdy when a corner when the ball came into the box and then Ryohei Hayashi headed the ball down to Shinnosuke Hatanaka and then he blasted the ball into the back of the net to make it 1-0 to Verdy, into the second half, Verdy had a good couple of chances but the Mito Goalkeeper Koji Homma, Mito had a good chance thanks to Ryotaro Ito but the Verdy GK Naoto Kamifukumoto saved it, it was a great chance for Verdy when a Mito DF hit a ball up field but Kota Watanabe got to it first and then went on a run towards goal but his shot went just wide, Verdy made it 2-0 after another corner – the corner came in and the Mito GK came out of his goal line area and tried to get the ball but Tomohiro Taira got above the Mito DF and headed it down to Douglas Vieira who cheekily backheels it into the back of the net to make it 2, Verdy made it 3-0 right near the end of the game – it was a pass from Watanabe to Alan Pinheiro and he chipped the Mito GK to make it 3-0 to Verdy, it was a big big win for the boys in Green.

Matchday 10 2018 Season Preview –Tokyo Verdy v Mito Hollyhock

Verdy’s 10th game of the 2018 season is at Home to Mito Hollyhock at Ajinomoto Stadium. Up to double figures of matchday now, it was another draw last matchday with Roasso Kumamoto – it was a 0-0 draw and one more point up the table(see the Review against Kumamoto in my last post) and Verdy see themselves in 5th place with 6 draws and 3 wins after 9 games, while Mito see themselves a place behind in 6th place on the same amount of points but it’s -1 on goal difference is all that separates both teams. The head to head between both teams from last season was a win in each game, the first game from last season was in Matchday 3 (Saturday 11th March) and Verdy came away with a 4-0 win with goals from Y Takagi (2), Pinheiro and Ibayashi and then the away game came in Matchday 25 when Mito won 3-2 – goals from Tamura and Vieira scored for Verdy and Maeda, a OG and Saito scored for Mito, let’s hope Verdy can keep up the great start to the season and get something from this game wherever it would be a win or a draw.
