Belgium vs Japan Prediction & Betting tips
The fact that the World Cup qualification is not always used as a benchmark for the performance of a team at the finals itself, the German team has unfortunately proved. In Belgium, on the other hand, this assumption is very correct. The red devils have sovereignly reached the first place in qualifying and caused a furore with more than four own hits on average. The red devils have taken this good form with them to Russia and there also easily reached the round of 16. There, Belgium face Japan and betting on the next success of Roberto Martinez’s troupe seems logical – especially as Japan’s opponents are not glittering with fame.
The Asians came as the first team in the history of the World Cup just because of the fair play rating in the second round, while the Senegal had to compete because of two yellow cards more home travel. So it does not really surprise that in the match of Belgium vs. Japan betting odds are so clearly distributed. We even dare to be successful with at least two goals in the lead after 90 minutes. The game will be kicked off on Monday evening at 19:00 German time.
Belgium has evolved from being a secret favorite to becoming a main contender for the World Cup trophy. The team of Roberto Martinez was one of the few favorites to convince in the group stage and has won all games in addition to Uruguay and Croatia as one of three nations. The powerful offensive to enforcers Romelu Lukaku, who has already scored four goals in Russia, can hardly be stopped. It will be interesting to see how the physically inferior Japanese want to stop the superstar of Manchester United.
Against England coach Roberto Martinez ran some players from the second row ran and the regulars got a breather. All of the outfielders in the Belgian squad have already been on duty minutes, which further enhances the mood in the team. In the current form you have to have Belgium at the top of the list and for the red devils Japan should only be a transit station. Accordingly, at the 2018 World Cup round of sixteen matches against Japan, the betting odds available for betting are distributed.
Japan has fought poorly through the group stage. Against Colombia, the Asians benefited from an early red card of the opponent and a penalty. Finally, Japan won 2-1 – the foundation for the subsequent progress was laid. Afterwards, the land of the rising sun showed great morale against Senegal and fought a 2-2 draw after two defeats.
The experienced attacker Honda struck as a joker and secured the important point against the West Africans. On the final day of the match, Japan was able to afford a narrow 1-0 defeat to Poland, who had already retired, to move into the knockout phase thanks to the fair play score. There would now be a huge power explosion needed if the trip against Belgium on Monday should not end. Unsurprisingly, when they meet Belgium against Japan, a tip on the Japanese is associated with enormous risk. Daring bets in this direction, however, are rewarded logically with double-digit betting odds, even if such odds are difficult to justify a bet.
