As part of one of the matches of the qualifying tournament for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, the teams of Japan and China will play face-to-face from Asia and Oceania. Which of the opponents will get the victory in this meeting? Our sports portal gives a forecast for this meeting.
The Japanese national team has been playing regularly at the World Championships lately, and in Russia it was just a little bit not enough to reach the quarterfinals of the tournament, when the loss of concentration with the score 2:0 in the match with Belgium cost too much - 2:3. Now you need to qualify for Qatar first, and the "samurai" look not that incredibly strong. Definitely, they have a lot to grow, especially in attack, because there are very few goals.
The Chinese national team once played at the World Cup, and so far, despite all the programs for the development of football in the country, it has not been able to achieve more. Now, most likely, the guests will not be able to introduce themselves in China either. Now the team is on the fifth line in the group and is already noticeably behind. However, in the last round, the Chinese presented a surprise, having managed to draw with Australia with a score of 1:1.
Statistics and figures:
- Japan is the favorite of the meeting;
- Japan has a 3-match winning streak;
- China has not won in 3 matches in a row;
- The last face-to-face meeting of the rivals ended with a score of 1-0 in favor of the Japanese.
Most likely, the Japanese national team will confidently defeat its opponent. It will be difficult for China to oppose something to its opponent. Our bet in this case will be in favor of the samurai handicap.
