Matchday 40 2017 Preview – Tokyo Verdy v Renofa Yamaguchi


Matchday 40 2017 Preview – Tokyo Verdy v Renofa Yamaguchi

Verdy’s 40th game of the 2017 season is at Home to Renofa Yamaguchi at Ajinomoto Stadium. Well it’s the final stretch of the season with 3 games to go, Verdy play their penultimate home game of the season against Renofa Yamaguchi – Renofa see themselves in the bottom 2 of the league and with Verdy in 6th place which is the last place in the play off so a result for Verdy can mean a big confidence boost to stay in that playoff spot and with 2 games to go against Kyoto and play off chasing Vortis – this is a exciting end to the season. The last time the 2 teams met this season was all the way back in Matchday 4 (Sun 19th March) and Verdy came away with a 2-0 win where Akira Ibayashi (19’) and Alan Pinheiro (80’) sealed all 3 points for the boys in Green, let’s hope for another result like this and to keep up what has been a good season. Let’s hope for a good result all the same. LET’S FIGHT TOWARDS VICTORY.

Matchday 39 2017 Review – Tokyo Verdy 0-0 Avispa Fukuoka


Matchday 39 2017 Review –Tokyo Verdy 0-0 Avispa Fukuoka

Verdy had to settle for a point at home against Avispa Fukuoka, the point puts another seal on being in line for a top 10 finish for the 2017 J2 Season considering Verdy brought in a new manager and some new players in – it’s been a great season – let’s hope it ends with a playoff spot. To the game itself, it was a early chance for Verdy when a long ball up field found Douglas Vieira with 2 Avispa DF’s but one of the Avispa DF’s got caught napping and Vieira was through on goal but the Avispa DF Shunsuke Tsutsumi got a good sliding tackle in and the ball went out – a real let off for Avispa, Avispa had a good chance from a corner but Avispa Number 16 Daisuke Ishizu put his shot over the bar, Verdy almost took the lead after a low cross into the box found Vieira then Vieira passed off the ball to Alan Pinheiro who was free on the edge of the box, his shot towards goal went through the legs of the Avispa GK Rikihiro Suguyama but the GK got a touch on the way through his legs and the ball bounced off the post and back out, the ball could of gone anywhere after the Avispa GK touched it but it came back off the post– so close for Verdy.It was a great chance for Avispa after a cross into the box by a Avispa player and it found a Avispa player head but Shibasaki made a great save to keep the away side out. Into the second half, a cross from the left by Kazuki Anzai found a Avispa DF and he headed the ball back to Pinheiro his shot was saved by Suguyama, but the full time whistle blew and it finished Verdy 0-0 Avispa – Avispa have actually dropped out of the Automatic Promotion spot for the first time in months – replaced by V-Varen Nagasaki – but there is only 2 points in between Nagasaki, Nagoya (3rd) and Avispa (4th) so it’s going to be a interesting end to the season.

Matchday 39 2017 Preview – Tokyo Verdy v Avispa Fukuoka


Matchday 39 2017 Preview – Tokyo Verdy v Avispa Fukuoka

Verdy’s 39th game of the 2017 J2 season is at Home to Avispa Fukuoka at Ajinomoto Stadium. With very few games remaining of the season, the last 4 games have really put Verdy in a good position in the table – they currently sit in 5th place in the table while our opponents currently sit in 2nd place but Avispa haven’t had good couple of games with a draw to Oita Away and a lost to Chiba at home – they will want to get back to winning way to keep them up in that automatic spot while Verdy will want to get a good result to keep them up in the play-off spot which they currently hold but if Verdy were to slip up then a few other teams could take their place – so the pressure is on. The last time these 2 teams met in the 2017 season – it was in Matchday 10 (Saturday, 29th April) at Level 5 Stadium where Avispa got a 1-0 win with Wellington scoring the only goal of the game with just under 10 minutes to go (82nd minute) to seal the win. Let’s hope the lads can really get something from this game and keep themselves in the play-off spots. LET’S FIGHT TOWARDS VICTORY.

Let’s have a look at Fukuoka’s last game against JEF United Chiba last weekend, Avispa Fukuoka lost 1-0 at home to JEF United Chiba with the only goal of the game coming in the 30th minute – all thanks to Takayuki Funayama for getting the 3 points for Chiba – the night didn’t end well for Avispa when striker Wellington got his marching orders after getting his second yellow card in injury time (90’ +6’) and this result meant that V-Varen has caught up to Avispa and on the same points right now but Avispa stay second on a better goal difference.

Matchday 38 2017 Review – FC Gifu 1-2 Tokyo Verdy


Matchday 38 2017 Review – FC Gifu 1-2 Tokyo Verdy

Verdy got another 3 points on the board with a 2-1 win away at FC Gifu in front of a crowd just over 4,000 fans and it’s a big result for Verdy and that put them into the top 5 after climbing a couple of places with results going in Verdy’s favour, to the game, it was a early chance for Verdy with Carlos Martinez going close after trying to chip the Gifu GK but he hit the cross bar, it was another great chance for Martinez after some nice play between Koki Anzai, Kota Watanabe and the ball fell to Carlos Martinez and his shot went over the bar, now into the second half, it was Verdy who took the lead on the 54th minute after a deflected shot from Tatsuya Uchida found the feet of Koki Anzai and he shot and the Gifu GK parried it enough and there was Douglas Vieira to put the ball into the back of the net to make it 1-0 to Verdy but Gifu got back into the game after a ball was picked up in their own half – Sisinio passed the ball up the field to Koya Kazama and he played a through ball to Kyogo Furuhashi and he got onto the ball and then put the ball past Shibasaki to make it 1-1 3 minutes after Verdy scored, Verdy had a great chance a few minutes later when Koki Anzai put a chance over the bar, but Verdy re-took the lead after a ball from the midfield found Vieira and he had a Gifu defender on him but Vieira got a shot away and the ball found the back of the net to make it 2-1 to Verdy and Vieira went over to the Verdy fans to celebrate and that was the full time score, what a big win for everyone involved.

Matchday 38 2017 Preview – FC Gifu v Tokyo Verdy


Matchday 38 2017 Preview – FC Gifu v Tokyo Verdy

Verdy’s 38th game of the 2017 season is at Away to FC Gifu at Nagaragawa Stadium. This game is the last away game of a double header – this game is away to FC Gifu – with 5 games to go, Verdy are still in the top 10 of the J2 league after the comeback win against bottom of the league Gunma to keep in contention with the top 5, to the game itself, Gifu currently sit in 17th place and I think they are safe from relegation in my opinion but they haven’t been doing great with results lately – the last 5 games they have lost 3 of those games (Home v Avispa, v Nagoya and v Vortis) – their last win was in Matchday 33 when they beat second off bottom Renofa Yamaguchi 1-0, the last time the 2 teams met was all the way back in Matchday 5 (25th March) at Ajinomoto Stadium where Verdy came away from the game with a 1-0 win, the only goal of the game came from Alan Pinheiro came in the 68th minute to seal all 3 points. Let’s hope Verdy can keep up the good run and get something from this game. LET’S FIGHT TOWARDS VICTORY.

Verdy came back from 1-0 down to claim all three points away to bottom of the league Thespa Kusatsu Gunma with a 2-1 win in front of just over 2, 000 people, let’s have a look at the game, it was Verdy who had the first chance of the game – Carloz Martinez with that chance but the Gunma GK got the ball, next a decent chance by Gunma was put wide by Gunma’s Number 19 Yugo Ichiyanagi, Verdy then had a great chance but Koki Anzai put the shot over the bar, into the second half and Gunma started with a great chance after a shot from Yuya Yamagishi which was saved and came back out to a Gunma player who crossed into the box straight away and the header was brilliantly saved by Shibasaki and it went over the bar, Gunma took the lead on the 75th minute after a cross into the box – it was headed back by a Verdy player then Yamagishi fluffed his shot but the ball found Kang and he put the ball past Shibasaki to make it 1-0, but Verdy got themselves a penalty after Douglas Vieira got pulled down in the box, Douglas pulled himself up and took the penalty – even though Keiki Shimizu got a touch to the ball, it still went into the back of the net to make it 1-1 on the 83rd minute and then in the 88th minute Verdy went in front for the first time of the match – a cross from Ryota Kajikawa found the head of Tatsuya Uchida who angled the header over the Gunma GK and into the back of the net to stun the Gunma players and fans – that’s Uchida’s first goal of the season and a very important goal as well for the boys in Green.
