Saudi Arabia vs Japan Prediction 5 September 2017

Tournament: 2018 World Cup qualification
Location: King Abdullah City Stadium, Jeddah
Match date: 05.09.2017 at 18:30

On September 5 2017 at 18:30 in the final game of the third stage of the Asian continent World Cup qualification at the King Abdullah City Stadium in Jeddah the local Saudi Arabia national football team will play against Japan national football team.

We think that nobody actually expected Saudi Arabia to lose two games in a row. They lost to Australia and United Arab Emirates in the latest matches and they made their chances to make it to the next stage really poor. Now their 16 points gained don’t look convincing at all. Before the final round of the current stage Saudi Arabia are on the second place in the standings of their group and yet they are above their closest rivals due to a better goal difference.

As for Japan, they outplayed Australia on the last game of summer and they won 2:0 in it. That victory let them make it to the next stage of the qualification and the upcoming game won’t mean a thing at all. Japan have really good statistics before the final game of the current stage as they won six times, drew twice and lost once with +11 goal difference which let them take the first place in the Group B.

The teams have already played seven games against each other in their history while Saudi Arabia won once and Japan won five times. Last time they met was on November last year and Japan won 2:1. We think that even though Japan have already made it to the next stage of the qualifiers, we still don’t think that they will just let Saudi Arabia win. That’s why we think that there will be serious fight in that match and both teams will manage to score at least once.
