Alberto Zaccarhonis’ side were unlucky to get nothing from their opening game against Ivory Coast and should have claimed a victory over a Greece side that played with 10 men for an hour. However, that they were unable to break down an admittedly solid Greek backline was an indication of a lack of cutting edge up top for Japan and will need to be banished if they are to progress beyond the group stage.
On the plus side, Japan's opponents Columbia are already assured of their place in the last 16 and virtually secure in top spot so may rest some of their key players such as James Rodriquez.

Also, in Keisuke Honda Japan have a certified match winner who should start up front as he did against Ivory Coast when he opened the scoring. A good betting tip for Japan v Columbia could be to back him to do the same again on Tuesday at 15/2 or at any time during the match at 11/4.

Of course it would be silly to assume that Columbia will just lie down and allow Japan to join them in the next round. The strength of their squad is such that even if one or two players are given a breather, the South Americans can call on some pretty fearsome back up, none more so than Jackson Martinez. It says a lot for the Columbian front line that the 24 goal Porto hit man has been limited to one substitute appearances so far, which could mean he has a point to prove if given a start. Odds of 6/1 for him to score first could be generous and makes up our next Japan v Columbia prediction.

With Japan pressing for the goals to see them through they could leave spaces at the back for Columbia to exploit. For that reason both teams to score would seem a solid coupon filler at 4/5 and makes up our final football betting tip. If you fancy a risk, Japan to win and both teams to score is tasty at 5/1.
