Japan to win

Japan’s opening day comeback win over Germany is one of the shocks of the tournament so far, and they’ll take a huge amount of confidence from that victory into this one as they face a Costa Rica side who shipped seven goals in their opening fixture. Japan were very impressive in that display against the Germans as they came from one goal down to win 2-1, and I think they’ll have plenty about them as they come into their second group game. Costa Rica will be feeling deflated and I think Japan will have too much for them in this one and come away with all three points.


Both teams to score – no

Japan showed they have a shrewd defence last time out against Germany, while Costa Rica done very little to remotely trouble Spain in their 7-0 trouncing. Japan have won three of their last six games without conceding a goal and I think they’ll repeat that in this fixture against a Costa Rica side that is on track to concede the most goals in the World Cup group stages. Samurai Blue scored 17 goals in their 10 World Cup qualifying matches and conceded less than one goal per game on average, with a total of seven. I think this selection has a great chance of landing and adds real value to the overall bet.



Daizen Maeda over 1.5 shots on target

Daizen Maeda will likely lead the line once more for Japan. The Celtic striker has scored four goals in Scottish domestic competitions this season with a mix of starting and substitute appearances and has impressed overall throughout his time in Glasgow. He averages over one shot every game and I think Japan will have plenty of chances in this one. With Maeda being the focal point of attack, he’s bound to get a number of shots on target as Japan are expected to spend most of this one on the front foot.
