Colombia vs Japan Prediction 19 June 2018

Tournament: World Cup 2018
Location: Mordovia Arena, Saransk
Match date: 19.06.2018 at 13:00

On June 19 2018 at 13:00 at the Mordovia Arena in Saransk in the upcoming first round game of the World Cup group stage Colombia national football team will play against Japan national football team. Last time they met was at the same level of the World Cup four years ago.

Colombia qualified for the World Cup not without some problems. They took the fourth place in their qualification group. Despite this fact they showed rather good results in their friendly matches before the start of the Mundial. Colombia outplayed France 3:2 and China with the devastating 4:0. Yet, in the latest matches the manager of the team probably chose to concentrate on defense and consequently they drew Australia and Egypt with the same 0:0 score.

Japan made it to the finals of the World Cup for the 6th time in a row and in 2002 and 2010 they even managed to make it to the play-offs. That was a very good period for the team and yet at the moment they no longer have it. There are only two high-quality players in the squad of the team and they are the only ones who commit attempts and score goals. Before the World Cup Japan outplayed Paraguay 4:2 in a friendly match and before that they had a six matches long winless series.

The Colombians are considered to be the favorites of the upcoming match. In the year 2014 at the World Cup Colombia outplayed Japan 4:1. This time the Asians may avoid a loss with a devastating score and yet they won’t probably be able to avoid losing this time. The Colombians have a much better squad and a few wonderful players in their squad. All of the facts we have already mentioned make us think that Colombia are much more likely to win this time.
