Japan has beaten Paraguay in their last three consecutive head-to-head encounters. Will Guillermo Scelotto's side be able to break their losing streak now? We predict the Asians will once again be closer to success!Claim Your Welcome Bonus!
The Japanese national team is a regular participant in the World Cup. Still, they almost made a severe error in the World Cup 2022 qualification when they suffered two defeats to Oman and Saudi Arabia with a score of 0:1 in the opening three rounds. Gradually, the Samurai side was able to transform, posting a six-match winning streak after which they drew 1:1 with Vietnam. They can now prepare for the 2022 World Cup by playing friendlies.
The Paraguayan side has missed out on the World Cup for the third time. The Red and Whites started World Cup 2022 qualifying with a five-match unbeaten streak, but then they began to lose points, and in their last eight games, they suffered six defeats, one win, and one draw, which saved them from traveling to Qatar in the late autumn. The Paraguayan squad needs to make some severe changes in the foreseeable future.
Expert Betting Tips
Japan participates in the upcoming 2022 World Cup, while Paraguay failed to qualify. The Asians go into the upcoming match with six wins and one draw in their last seven games, while the Paraguayans have six defeats in their previous eight meetings. In addition, the Samurai have beaten the Red and White in their last three head-to-head encounters, so we suggest betting on a Japan win for 1.71.
It is unlikely to be a goal-scoring extravaganza. Japan have played their usual pragmatic football, and in the last six games, they have only scored ten goals (1.67 goals per game average), and the Samurai have conceded just once in that stretch while scoring nine goals. The Paraguayans are not a team that can shock the Asians with their open, attacking football, and we have decided to bet on a Total Under 2.5 goal for 1.705.
In the previous ten meetings, the Samurai have only scored and conceded on two occasions (20%), the first time was at the very beginning of the qualifying cycle for the 2022 World Cup, and the second time it was in the last round when all the goals had already been achieved. With the Asians beginning their preparations for Qatar, they will undoubtedly be modeling what is likely to happen in the World Cup finals. With that in mind, it's worth looking at Both Teams to Score - No for 1.72.
