Mexico u23 vs Japan u23 Prediction
Both teams will take this match seriously, in the end, they are playing for an Olympic medal which is a very important triumph for any nation. In the group stage, Japan won 2-1 but things can be different in this match as the stakes are much higher.
Japan are known for having very tactically disciplined teams and this team is no exception. That was the main reason for coach Moriyasu’s success in this Olympics. They are a very composed team and have proved their capability against all teams.
Mexico have also had very convincing performances so far. Even against Brazil, they were so close to causing a major upset. Coach Lozano might have learned his lesson from their defeat earlier in the tournament and may adopt a different tactic to clinch the Bronze medal.
The winner of this match is very difficult to decide. Even the bookies are paying the same amount for each team’s win. We will back the double chance and total goals scored in the combos section at Vbet.
