Japan Prediction- Can Japan keep unbeaten run going?

Although it’s the Copa America in Brazil, Japan are one of the invitees for this year’s tournament and they start their campaign in Group C against Chile on Monday night.

Japan bring a 3-match unbeaten run into the Copa America tournament having registered wins over Bolivia and El Salvador, winning 1-0 and 2-0 respectively.

The Japanese also drew 0-0 with Trinidad & Tobago, but this was an extremely underwhelming result against one of the weaker nations in international football.

Scoring goals on a regular basis has been Japan’s main problem in the major tournaments and the Blue Samurai’s cutting edge up front will be tested once again in Brazil.

Japan reached the final of the Asian Cup back in February where they lost 3-1 in the final to Qatar, who have also been invited to this year’s Copa America.

7 of Japan’s last 10 matches overall in all competitions have resulted in under 2.5 goals, while 10 of Japan’s last 13 away matches have been under the 2.5 goals mark.

Chile Prediction – Can Chile emerge as rivals to Uruguay?

Chile start this year’s Copa America tournament as the possible closest rivals to Group C favourites, Uruguay, to progress out of this group to the quarter-finals.

They’ve posted mixed results though in recent times with just 3 wins from their last 9 matches overall which were wins against Mexico, Honduras and Haiti.

Within this 9-match period, Chile have also lost to Peru, Costa Rica and Mexico as well as three draws with Poland, South Korea and USA.

It’s anyone’s guess then which Chile outfit will take to the field in their Group C opener against opponents Japan, but form away from home has been sporadic.

Chile have posted just 2 wins out of their last 9 matches on their travels which were victories gained over Serbia and Mexico, but the goals have also ebbed and flowed.

5 of Chile’s last 9 away matches have resulted in under 2.5 goals, and they’ve failed to score in 3 of these 9 matches as well.

It’s been 10 years since the last meeting between these two teams, which Japan won 4-0 at home. This was after they drew 0-0 in their first ever meeting.

 

Key-Facts – VPS v KuPS

  • 10 of Japan’s last 13 away matches have been under 2.5 goals
  • 5 of Chile’s last 9 away matches have resulted in under 2.5 goals
  • It’s been 10 years since the last meeting between these two teams, which Japan won 4-0

 

Betting Tips Verdict

Neither side are in particularly sparkling form right now, and both teams will be keen to avoid defeat in the first group match of their respective campaigns. Should be a low-scoring game.
