Tokyo Verdy preview: Hoping to move into the top half of the standings

With four wins, two draws, and two losses in their last eight games in the league, Tokyo Verdy have been in solid form recently.

Player to watch: Itsuki Someno

While we expect this match to end without a winner, one of the players that could break this deadlock and our player to watch is Tokyo Verdy's top scorer Itsuki Someno.

Someno to score more than once?

We already saw Someno score multiple goals on two occasions this season in the J1 League. Can he do it again in the upcoming duel with Nagoya?
