As part of the round-robin match of the men's Volleyball League of Nations, the players of the national teams of Japan and Iran will come face to face. Which side will win this match? Our sports portal evaluates the chances of success of teams.
The Japanese national team at the last Volleyball World Championship was able to reach the 1/8 finals stage. In the first round of the playoffs, the Asian team received France as its opponents, to which it lost in a tie-break with a score of 2:3. In preparation for the new League of Nations tournament, the Japanese held two friendly matches. In the first meeting, the Asian team was able to beat Poland with a score of 3:2, after which they lost to the Poles with a score of 1:3, failing to show their best level of volleyball.
The Iranian national team also reached the playoffs at the last Volleyball World Championship. As part of the 1/8 finals, the Asian team immediately got to Brazil, to which they lost with a score of 0:3. At the same time, Iran played poorly only in the first set, after which it lost by a difference of 2-3 points. Iran did not prepare for the tournament through friendly matches, but trained behind closed doors, taking a very solid squad to the international championship.
Statistics and figures:
- Japan is the favorite of the meeting;
- Japan won twice in 5 matches;
- Iran has lost three times in 5 games;
- The last face-to-face meeting of the opponents ended with a score of 3:0 in favor of the Japanese.
In this meeting, the Chinese team will still be able to win, although the meeting will be tense and extremely unpredictable. I bet on the success of the Asian team through the passage of the basic betting total.
