Fixture: Japan vs Senegal
UK Kick-off time: Sunday 24th June at 4pm
Stadium: Ekaterinburg Arena
Competition: 2018 World Cup – Group H
Japan vs Senegal Preview
In what could possibly represent the most open group on offer among the 2018 World Cup this summer, Group H promises to arrive with it’s fair share of goals, upsets and all-round unpredictability. Japan will be more determined than ever to improve their ongoing lack of pedigree on the international scene with a promising performance against Senegal, yet Akira Nishino’s men will have to be on guard if they are to eventually come out on top.
Senegal on the other hand play host to a wide variety of both defensive and attacking talents, in a team that many World Cup betting tips have looked upon favourably. But whilst the likes of Sadio Mane and co. will likely serve to impress the causal World Cup onlooker in Russia, Senegal’s perceived lack of match-winning finesse could potentially hold them back right when it matters most it seems.
Japan vs Senegal Predictions
Made in Japan
Having recently found the back of the net in Japan’s warm-up campaign for the 2018 World Cup, Takashi Inui arrives in Russia as a potentially explosive star for opposing teams to worry about. The diminutive winger may not seem like an out-in-out goal-scorer on the surface, yet his ability inside the final third could well surprise those who thought Japan incapable of producing the goods.
Inui possesses tight close control ability with a keen eye for goal inside the final third. He has recently plied his trade among the European game with relative success, amid both the German and Spanish top-flights, subsequently going down as a possible anytime scorer in line with our latest Japan vs Senegal betting tips at the World Cup.
More than Mane
Although Liverpool’s Sadio Mane clearly arrives as Senegal’s most potent threat ahead of World Cup 2018, Senegal must also look elsewhere for goals if they are to really make a true success of themselves in Russia. An over reliance on the 26-year-old front-man could prove troublesome for Aliou Cisse’s side in the long-run, no matter how determined they are to win.
Thankfully for Senegal, Cisse also has the likes of Keita Balde Diao, Pape Moussa Konate and Diafra Sakho to count upon should he need added fire-power this summer. Senegal are no slouches from a defensive point of view either, but it is their proposed attacking prowess that could ultimately see them book their place among the latter stages of the competition.
Overall this looks to be a particularly tough fixture to predict. Both sides are capable of coming out on top here, in a well-fought battle that could end with numerous different outcomes. For the purposes of this preview however, it feels as if it will be Senegal who just about edge it, aiming to claim a slot among the knock-out stages of the tournament in forthright and deserving style.
Although Japan do have what it takes to win themselves some brand new admirers this summer, perhaps Senegal will ultimately walk away with a 2-1 victory to their name. Each defensive back-line will be keen to get the best of their opposing attackers, but as Senegal possess the stronger front-line on paper, it seems reasonable to suggest that they will indeed finish up with all three points when all is said and done.
