Japan vs Poland – Predictions, Odds & Betting Tips
Bet Now on The World Cup Final – France vs Croatia
1 x 2 Prediction
It has been a remarkable change in fortunes for these two teams since the World Cup started. Poland came into the competition flying but have flopped spectacularly and Japan looked short on confidence but have produced the goods. The Japanese only need a point against Poland to progress to the round of 16 and on current form that looks more than achievable. Ladbrokes has a draw priced at 3.10.
Japan vs Poland Score Prediction
Japan will look to get men behind the ball and defend their way into the round of 16 whilst breaking with pace when Poland commit too many men forward. Bet365 have a 1-1 scoreline priced at 6.00.
Japan vs Poland Preview
A draw looks likely at the Volgograd Arena given how badly Poland are playing but also how fragile the Japanese defense looks under pressure. One would find it hard to imagine Robert Lewandowski would go the whole World Cup without scoring and the big marksman will surely find the back of the net against Japan. The Japanese have found scoring easy to come by and should cancel out any Polish goals with ones of their own.
Japan won’t jeopardize their chances of going through to the knockout stage by adopting a gung-ho approach. Keeping it tidy at the back will be the instructions and less than 2.5 goals match goals looks the bet to make with Betstar at 1.67.
Both Teams To Score Prediction
The Japanese have found the back of the net four times so far at the World Cup and should do so again against Poland. With nothing to lose, Poland will look to go out with a bang and should definitely score a goal over the course of 90 minutes. Both teams to score is 1.85 with Centrebet.
Poland’s World Cup campaign has been bitterly disappointing, and they will leave Russia with tough questions to answer about where the next generation of players will come from. Japan have done superbly to give themselves a chance of getting to the round of 16 and will do everything they can to press home the advantage against Poland.
