Tokyo Verdy vs Jubilo Iwata by Alexis1016
Football - Japan - J2-League.
Tokyo Verdy has some financial problems from the beginning of this season and because of this were unable to support the wage of former japanese international Naohiro Takahara, a player with great experience who played a lot of seasons in Bundesliga. So, Takahara was loaned to J3 side, SC Sagamihara. Yes, I know, may seem strange, but it seems Sagamihara has more financial potential than Verdy at this moment. Also, another important player who left the team to save some money it's the talented Shoya Nakajima. Also, Verdy hasn't an main sponsor and from the tickets they don't take many money because the main team of the city it's FC Tokyo. So, in this conditions, from this season, Verdy J3 relegation candidate.
On the other hand, Jubilo hasn't a great shape and they are without a win in the last two games. The defense it's still the big problem, but they have a good attacking line-up and Jubilo scored at least two goals per game lately. Players like Yamada, Matsui, Popo and Maeda are really good for this level of play. Against Yokohama FC between the goal posts was for the first time in this season Naoki Hatta, who replaced Fujigaya, who made some mistakes in the last matches. Jubilo conceded again goals, but Hatta looks more safer than Fujigaya. Key left back Tomohiko Miyazaki it's injured, while striker Hidetaka Kanazono also has some medical problems, but he isn't a starter.
Well, as I said before Jubilo has problems in defense, but they have great potential up front and they are able to win this one against a team who has some problems and it's a J3 relegation candidate.
