Japan vs Poland predictions and betting tips for the Group H match on Thursday. Japan need to take something from this match in order to ensure their qualification for the round of 16 whilst Poland are simply playing for pride. Will the Blue Samurai make it through the group stage unbeaten? 


Japan vs Poland Prediction

Group H has been one of the highest scoring section at the 2018 World Cup and Japan have been heavily involved. Akira Nishino’s side opened up with three points against Colombia before twice coming from behind to draw 2-2 with Senegal. Despite being one of the oldest teams in the tournament, they’ve shown plenty of energy in the opening two matches and they could cause plenty of problems in this game. Poland have been a huge disappointment so far and are exiting the tournament early. They’ve failed to collect a single point in Russia and their defence has looked shaky throughout. Kamil Glik’s absence hasn’t helped but they’ve made a number of errors at the back and they’ve paid a heavy price for that, See our Japan vs Poland predictions and betting tips below.


Japan vs Poland Predictions

Japan need to collect something from this game. Although a point would probably be suffice here, three would be ideal. Poland have conceded five times already and look atrocious at the back. They are likely to struggle with Japan’s movement in the final third and should concede a couple of goals here. Japan netted twice against Senegal and Colombia and should find joy in the final third. Keisuke Honda is likely to use his vast experience in this game and could be the biggest danger. A win for Japan would send them through and put them top of the group and they should collect three points and that’s why the first of Japan vs Poland predictions is for Japan to Win at 8/5 with 888Sport. 


Japan vs Poland Anytime Goalscorer Tip

Japan opened up their campaign with a penalty against Colombia with Shinji Kagawa keeping his cool from the spot. He will be keen to add to his tally in this match and he could be handy from another set-piece situation. With Poland being clumsy at the back, they could give away a penalty in this contest. The midfielder is towards the top of the anytime goalscorer market and can be backed 11/4 with Paddy Power. The midfielder is the second of our Japan vs Poland predictions.


Japan vs Poland Correct Score Prediction

Japan have netted twice in their opening two matches whilst Poland have conceded fives times in their previous outings. They do possess a goalscoring threat with Robert Lewandowski although they will need to provide him with a bit more service. Another 2-1 scoreline for Japan looks likely and that correct score is available at 9/1 with Bet Victor. A 2-1 Correct Score is the third of our Japan vs Poland predictions.
