Japan is one of the strongest teams in Asia. They have played consistently at the World Cup since 1998 without missing a championship. Moreover, at the World Cup 2022, they were one step away from a historical achievement. They have never managed to reach the quarterfinals, and in Qatar, they lost to the Croats in the last 16 only on penalties, 1:2. At the last Asian Cup, the Blues reached the final but claimed silver medals. After the World Cup, the Japanese had only one friendly drawing with Uruguay 1:1. Takuma Nishimura answered Federico Valverde's goal.
In recent years, Colombia regularly participated in the world championships, but in qualifying for the World Cup 2022, it performed poorly. However, they were only one point behind the knockouts. On the other hand, at last America's Cup in 2021, the team looked decently and won bronze. After failed World Cup qualification, the Colombians gained form with four won friendlies. In 2023 they had friendly matches against the USA and South Korea, tying both matches 0:0 and 2:2.
Expert Betting Tips
The opponents come to the encounter in good form. The Asians made the playoffs at the last World Cup and then sealed a draw with the Uruguayans. Colombia missed the World Cup, but at the end of the qualifiers, have made progress. Now they have not failed seven games in a row. In 2023, the teams played three games against each other, playing in a draw each time.
The Japanese team, as the hosts, will certainly attack. Otherwise, the fans would need help understanding it. Moreover, in five of the last six matches, both teams scored. If we talk about Colombia, their attack is now unstoppable, having scored in the five matches 11 goals (2.20 average).
