Who will win Japan vs Senegal?

There could be a tight battle between these two but they both have to be in their respective camps thinking that they can win this match. With both of them sat on three points then the winner gets the huge prize of making it through to the next round, leaving the other to sweat it out in the final round of group stage matches. However, will the pressure of the situation get to them both and cancel each other out?

Blue Samurai find their cutting edge

What a turn up for the books that Japan produced in taking a 2-1 opening win over Colombia. The Blue Samurai were heavy underdogs for that game. But Colombia gave away a penalty and had a red card dished out in the first five minutes so Japan were able to get an advantage and they worked hard to get it in the end. That was a surprise three points which totally blew Group H wide open as Colombia were the favourites to win it. Now Japan who were the favourites for the wooden spoon have the chance to secure a place in the next round by winning this fixture.

That would be something and remember England will play someone from Group H in the round of sixteen. Japan have now won their last two games after a poor run of form so this is a huge surprise that they are in this spot. Neither they nor Senegal have a great defence and over 2.5 goals is at 7/5 odds with bet365* (Betting Odds were taken from June 21st, 2018 at 8:46 p.m.) is being looked at in our Japan v Senegal predictions. Japan have failed to keep a clean sheet in any of their last six while conceding exactly two in four of their last five.

Senegal suddenly in the frame

Senegal were looking second best to Poland in most aspects of their opening fixture against the Europeans but still came away with a 2-1 win. That was thanks to that opportunistic strike when their player being waved back into play after an injury latched immediately on to a Poland back pass and slotted home. Senegal looked an average side at best and not even Sadio Mane did much of anything in the game. But one of the big areas in which they did succeed was in keeping Robert Lewandowski quiet as their big defence totally blocked him out of the game. But against Japan, they will face a different task because they will be moved around a lot more by the Asians. Without looking like a particular threat in front of goal, Senegal have scored in all but two of their last six fixtures and in the bet365 correct score market there is some appeal on the 1-1 draw at 11/8 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from June 21st, 2018 at 8:46 p.m.). You could also just roll with the both teams to score option if you wanted to cover your bases a little better. It is not easy to pick a winner out of these two in what will be their third meeting, Senegal have won the previous two.

Japan vs Senegal Prediction

There may not be too much to split these at the end of the day. Despite both winning their opening games, neither looking particularly great. Senegal were definitely second best despite beating Poland and Japan benefited from playing most of their game with ten men. Our key Japan v Senegal prediction is going to be the draw in the match outright.
