Japan (@1.02) vs Thailand (@9.5)

Our Prediction:

Japan will win

Japan – Thailand Match Prediction | 14-09-2019 05:00

Noteworthy, the attacking partnership of Suarez and Cavani is in the perfect working order. It has been eight years since La Celeste won their last Copa America title. Considering that Japan experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 4-0 loss to Chile, there is a big value in betting on the Uruguayans. The nominal hosts are likely to get their revenge on the Samurai Blue for last years loss in a friendly. Oscar Tabarezs team aim to regain the prestigious trophy and they made a flying start to their campaign.

Bet: the victory of the national team of Japan with a -2-ball odds. The history of the meetings of the teams of Japan and Thailand has 6 matches, in all the Japanese won with a total score of 15: 2. I think this time, the samurai at their native stands will easily replay the guests and make another step towards the World Cup.

Apart from that, the yellow card situation could present him with one or two slight worries. Jose Gimenez and Nicolas Lodeiro each picked up one of those on Sunday, so they will need to be careful to not miss out on the final match. Oscar Tabarezs main worry will likely relate to the age of his star players, with a lot of them surely in need of a rest at some point in this tournament.

The Thais are one of those Asian nations that are really making great strides with their football, and that is highlighted by their outstanding 2-2 draw with Australia earlier in the Group B offing. But they do seem to struggle on their travels, as 0-4 and 1-3 defeats to Iraq and the UAE testifies, and so we really cant take their hope seriously here.

Japan vs Thailand Prediction

After one round of fixtures, Group C sees the name of Uruguay on top after they took all three points off of Ecuador via a brutal 4-0 win. As for Japan, they sit alongside them having lost by that same score to Chile on Monday. Ecuador, due to the severity of its loss, are on the very bottom and will have some work to do in order to forge a path out of the group. That means Uruguay and Chile are on level footing ahead of the second match of the group.

As for Thailand, they will continue to do their best but a run of form that reads W0 D1 L4 tells its own story. They actually topped Group F in the second phase of qualifying, although the teams they were up against there Iraq, Vietnam and Chinese Taipei are clearly of a class below those that the Thais are up against in this third phase.

Overall, though, this has been a hard team to read throughout the year. Two of the losses came to France, while notable losses came against both South Korea and this very same opponent as well. Uruguay will come into this match in a positive mood after they easily shook off Ecuador in their opener to the tune of four goals, two of which were just absolutely brilliant to behold. They have been feast or famine, taking no draws as they have won seven times and lost five times.

URU vs JPN Betting Tips and Odds

They then went to the AFC Asian Cup and were favored only to fall short to an emerging Qatar team that is also here. They didnt look their best at the World Cup last summer, but they did get out of the group thanks to a little bit of luck. Japan have had a pretty decent year. Since their dismissal from the World Cup, they have only lost thrice and drawn twice in 17 matches, a pretty nice run. As mentioned before, though, the teams that beat them are at this very competition, with Qatar and Colombia among them, along with Chile now. It ended there, though, as Belgium knocked them out.

This Uruguay team is just so good at the two ends of the pitch. Part of that defence is Diego Godin, a man that is so massively experienced. Not only does their side possess Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani, two of the top finishers in all of football, both of which scored on Sunday, but it also holds a very strong defence as well. Not only is he nearly impossible to get through, but hes also shown to be quite a scorer at times when in the opposite box as well, such is the threat of the Atletico Madrid man.

Yuya Kubo, a 23 year old that is playing at Gent in Belgium right now, is a man to keep an eye on. Thailand need to watch him very closely as he could easily score a couple here. He was given a great pass, no doubt, but his curved finish into the near post from a tight angle was superb, and he's likely to have made many fans with just that one goal. In just his third cap for the Japanese, Kubo scored a great goal against the UAE to open the scoring on Thursday. Kubo has also been on fire for his club, scoring five times in seven matches.


With that said, they have been around the block and have the nous to take down the Blue Samurai with lethal finishing. Expert Verdict: Japan might not look like much of a contender, and they may not be to win it outright, but don't overlook them too much. It's no secret that Uruguay's stars are only getting older, and that factor could make it tough on them. Their is a huge Japanese population in Brazil and this is one of the most technical, well-trained sides in the world when it comes to fitness.
