Japan vs Poland World Cup Prediction 28th June 2018 – 3.00 p.m

Japan find themselves in a position of only need a point to guarantee that they get through to the next round. They would be there regardless if Colombia loses against Senegal. Still, the Blue Samurai have exceeded expectations so far because they weren’t given too much fo a chance in this group. Instead, it has been Poland who has fallen by the wayside early. Can Japan dig out the point that they need to move through to the round of sixteen?

Who will win Japan vs Poland?

A win for Poland does nothing other than restore a little bit of pride. It is Japan who would be flying through with potentially the group win under their belt if they were to pick up three points. Who will win the Japan vs Poland clash? With a disinterested Poland and a Japan side who just need to avoid defeat, a winner may not be produced.

Blue Samurai to cut a path to the Knockout Phase

Japan have to go and stick out for a draw in this final group stage game if they want to get through to the next round of the competition. If they were to fail to get anything out of this, they would need Senegal to do worse than them in their game against Poland. So Japan have things in their own control really and given their 2-1 opening win over Colombia and then a really battling 2-2 draw against Senegal, they could be good value for money to get that point. Japan have been tested, first against Colombia in having a man advantage and going in search of a winner which they found.

Then they had to fight back from behind twice against Senegal to get their point. It is worth looking at both teams to score in this one which is 4/5 odds at bet365* (Betting Odds were taken from June 25th, 2018 at 11:43 p.m.). What could help out the Blue Samurai in this game is that Poland have nothing to play for because they have already been knocked out contention. The Blue Samurai are W2 D2 L2 in their last six games and they have scored exactly two goals in each of their last three games (W2 D1). So they have found a bit of form at the right nice, but they have been shaky at the back with no clean sheet in eight.

Poland end a disappointing campaign

Poland were expected to be in the hunt for a group win, but they could not make things happen. They have had their chances over their two games, but they haven’t been able to reproduce the prolific form that they had during their World Cup 2018 qualification campaign. Poland have produced 20 shots at this tournament, but have scored just the one goal. After losing against Senegal in their opener, Poland then found themselves on the end of a hiding by Colombia and that leaves them with just a W2 D1 L3 record in their last six games. Not even the presence of Robert Lewandowski has been able to help them out as he hasn’t even gotten on the scoresheet yet and he is the 20/21 anytime goalscorer favourite at bet365* (Betting Odds were taken from June 25th, 2018 at 11:43 p.m.).

It has been two wins in their last eight games though now for Poland and they failed to hit the back of the net in four of those. So their dip in form has come at the wrong time and it is not only the problem of goals having dried up for them, but it is their defence as well which has been hit. They have scored at least two goals in each of their last five games now, but have conceded at least two goals in each of their last five. So they are vulnerable back there and the pace of Japan could rattle them. Over 2.5 goals at bet365 look a very solid prediction for Japan v Poland and that is at a great quote of 21/20 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from June 25th, 2018 at 11:43 p.m.).

Japan vs Poland Prediction

Japan have been more of a resilient side than we ever expected them to be in this tournament and they have shown pretty good grit in collecting their four points so far. They just need one more and we think that it is worth backing them because Poland have been hugely disappointing and may not be too interested here. Look for the draw in the match outright.
