Tokyo Verdy preview: Hoping to keep their good form alive

After losing twice in the first three games, Tokyo Verdy have only lost one of their last 14 matches. So, things have been going well for them for the most of the season, but they're still only in 11th place in the standings because they have more draws than wins. In any case, they're also very close to the teams in the top half of the standings and a few wins could push them closer to the top.

Another positive for Tokyo Verdy is their clean bill of health.

Predicted lineup: Vidotto (GK), Miyahara, Chida, Inami, Morita, Saito, Onaga, Miki, Someno & Kimura
