Japan vs Senegal Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

A numerical advantage helped Japan immensely, as the Asian outfit began the World Cup 2018 campaign in positive fashion. Senegal boosted their hopes of reaching the last 16 with an opening game win over Poland. Even though Japan have struggled in warm-up games leading up to the World Cup, the victory over Colombia may provide Akira Nishino’s team with a bundle of confidence. Japan were able to dominate possession against Colombia and they may eye a repeat of the same against Senegal, who may largely look to play on the counter-attack. I would go with a win for Japan.

This match witness as both teams on a decent scoring patch and Japan’s lack of confidence at the back is likely to make them vulnerable to Senegal’s pace. I would go with both teams to score, which is at an attractive price.

Japan win – 13/5

Both teams to score – 19/20
