Tonight's Expert Analyzed Matches To Rely On

Japan vs Spain

Japan will be hoping to return to winning ways here following the 0-1 WC22 loss in their previous game against Costa Rica.

In that game, Japan managed 57% possession and 13 attempts at goal with 3 on target. At the other end, Costa Rica got 4 attempts at goal with 1 of them on target. Keysher Fuller (81') was the scorer for Costa Rica.

It’s been a rare occasion in recent games where Japan have kept a clean sheet. The reality is that Japan have failed to prevent opponents from scoring in 5 of their previous 6 clashes, leaking 6 goals on the way.

In the game prior to this, Spain drew 1-1 in the WC22 tie with Germany.

In that match, Spain managed 64% possession and 7 shots on goal with 3 on target. The only player to score for Spain was Álvaro Morata (62'). On the other side, Germany got 11 shots on goal with 4 of them on target. Niklas Füllkrug (83') scored for Germany.

A series of reliable showings from the Spain defensive players has seen their ‘goals against’ tally amounting to 3 from their previous 6 outings overall. In that period of time, their forwards have scored 14. Regardless, it remains to be seen whether that trend might persist in this next match. Prediction: Spain to win the game.
