Japan will be looking to make a winning start to their Olympics campaign as they play South Africa whom they have met once before in the year 2000 in the Olympics and won 2-1.

Based on their latest results, Japan seems to be in better form as they drew with Spain in a friendly 1-1 while South Africa lost to Egypt 3-0. 

Japan are the clear favorite with Vbet offering as low as 1.27 odds for a Japan win. They are a very strong team and will be favorites as well to qualify from this group to the quarters.

We don’t think we will see both teams scoring in this match and an odds of 1.61 at Vbet for that bet seems quite reasonable.
