Betting tips for Japan vs Poland 28.06.2018
The Japanese gave the surprise defeating Colombia, and now they measure Senegal in search of securing their classification. Japan finished behind South Korea in the East Asian Championship group. The Japanese lost the lead on the last day, losing 1-4 at home to Koreans. That defeat did not matter since both teams will be in the World Cup.
Framed in the same group as Colombia, Senegal and Poland, the truth is that the Nipponese did not arrive at their best in this World Cup despite having numerous players in the European leagues, especially in the Bundesliga. The new player of Real Betis, Takashi Inui, will be one of the stars of a team that has a veteran as the ex-Milan Honda, the central Southampton Yoshida or the intergalactic Nagatomo.
Japan gave the surprise in the debut, winning by 2-1 to a Colombia with 10 players. In the second match, Senegal came on two occasions, but the Japanese proved to have a huge personality, drawing a draw that leaves them with everything in their hands to qualify.
Poland has been one of the biggest disappointments of the tournament. The European team finished in first place in Group E European qualification for this tournament, being ahead of Denmark, Montenegro, Romania, Armenia and Kazakhstan. The team of Adam Nawalka was a relative disappointment in the last European Championship after being eliminated on penalties against Portugal in the quarterfinals.
In the last qualifying round, the Poles tied on the first day (2-2 in Kazakhstan) to link five consecutive victories against Denmark (3-2), Armenia (2-1), Romania (at home, 0-3). , Montenegro (1-2) and Romania (at home, 3-1). The win in Denmark (4-0) was the exception of a qualification phase that ended with the goals against Kazakhstan (3-0), Armenia (1-6) and Montenegro (4-2).
Robert Lewandowski, who has scored 13 goals in 10 matches in the qualifying campaign of the last European Championship, again came out in this World Cup qualifying phase, scoring 16 goals in 10 matches, including 6 penalties.
Poland drew 0-0 with Uruguay and lost to Mexico, both matches last November. In March, lost to Nigeria (0-1) and won South Korea (3-2).
In the debut, Poland was defeated by Senegal (2-0), falling by 3-0 against Colombia in the match that sent them home.
The Poles do not play anything and on the other hand, Japan has played great football. Depending on the results, a draw can be good for the Asians, but knowing their mentality, they will win this match from minute 1. It will be Lewandowski's farewell to a World Cup that they have gone through with more grief than glory and maybe look at least go scoring a goal. The forecast is that Japan will win this match and will be the first of their group, ahead of Colombia or Senegal, who will play the pass in the other match.
