Matchday 9 2018 Season Preview – Roasso Kumamoto v Tokyo Verdy

Verdy’s 9th game of the 2018 season is Away to Roasso Kumamoto at EGAO Kenko Stadium. Its Verdy’s 4th away game of the season and this time it’s at Roasso Kumamoto where they currently sit just behind Verdy in 7th place with 13 points (4 Wins, 1 Draw and 3 Losses) while Verdy are on 14 points (3 Wins and 5 Draws), it will be a very interesting game as both clubs are quite close to each other in the table and looking at the head to head between the both teams – last season it was 1 each, the away game for Verdy was a 4-0 thrashing in Matchday 21 in the 2017 Season (1/7/17) with 4 different goal scorers – Hachikubo, Byong Jun An, Kamimura and Kuroki with the goals but Verdy beat Kumamoto in Matchday 27 (11/8/17) at Ajinomoto Stadium with Douglas Vieira with the winning goal for Verdy in the 89th minute, let’s hope the boys in green can keep up the great start to the season and hopefully get something from the game and get a win or a draw. LET’S FIGHT TOWARDS VICTORY.
