Japan vs Australia: Preview Prediction and Betting Tips
Japan need the three points at all cost
Six-time World Cup qualifiers Japan are having a torrid final stage Asian qualifications. In three matches, the Blue Samurais lost twice. In fact, Japan finished the second stage qualifying games winning all eight games and conceding just two goals. However, things changes when coach Moriyasu’s team started facing tougher opposition.
In their last match against Saudi Arabia, and in a very equally contested match, japan failed to score from four shots on goal. As a matter of fact they scored just once in the last three matches. Hence Moriyasu needs to push his team to perform over their capabilities against a team they have not lost in eight games.
Japan Key Points
- The Blue Samurais failed to score in three of their last ten matches
- Japan’s last three matches ended in under 1.5 goals
- BTTS didn’t happen in Japan’s last three matches

Australia looking very strong as they travel for a tough away fixture
Contrary to their opponents, Australia are having a perfect WCQ campaign so far. Like Japan, the Socceroos won all of their eight matches in the second stage, However, Graham Arnold’s team extended that run with three more wins in the third stage. Moreover, the Aussies conceded just three goals in the last 11 WCQ games for Qatar 2022.
Since leaving the Oceania Football Confederation in 2006, Australia qualified to all World Cup finals. Their best result was reaching the round of 16 in 2006 when they lost narrowly to Italy. In their last match, Arnold’s team gave away an early lead as they allowed Oman to equalize. However, two second-half goals were enough to seal the three points.
Australia Key points
- The Socceroos are on an 11 match winning streak in WCQ games
- Australia scored in all of their last ten matches
- Arnold’s team had seven clean sheets in their last ten games
Japan vs Australia Prediction
Looking at their h2h matchups, Japan are undefeated in eight games. Hence and despite their recent shaky form, the bookies are favoring them to win with odds of 1.90 at Vbet.
Surely, Japan need a win and will play in an offensive way. Notably, the Blue Samurais are six points behind second-placed Saudi Arabia after three rounds. Although there are still seven games to play, teams want to secure their stance early.
As a result of all these aspects surrounding this game, we think we may see over 1.5 goals in this match and we will combine it with a double chance to fatten the odds.
