Japan Stats & Form

Japan is one of the top stories of the World Cup right now as they stunned Germany in the opening match. Japan played very good and showed tremendous throughout the entire game. However, Germany took the lead after Japanese goalkeeper Shuichi Gonda made a cheap mistake.

Japan didn’t give up on the game and continued to push hard which paid off in the last 15 minutes of the game. First Ritsu Doan tied the game and while everyone was wondering if Japan will be able to hold it to the tie, they stunned the four-time World Cup champion as Takuma Asano set the final 2-1 seven minutes from time.

This was Japan’s fifth win in the last 10 games and after they did this to Germany, they need to be taken way more seriously in the upcoming matches.

Japan made it to the second round in the previous World Cup in Russia and is very close to doing that again.

Costa Rica Stats & Form

Costa Rica came into the World Cup as one of the lowest-ranked teams among the participants but no one could have thought they will lose badly in the opener against Spain. Costa Rica had no bright moments in the 7-0 loss and will have a really tough time recovering.

Anyway, if you take a look at their last 10 games the record looks pretty impressive as Costa Rica has won 7 games with 1 draw and 2 losses. No matter how bitter the opening game was, Costa Rica will try to do their best to bounce back even though the lack of quality is pretty obvious.

The 7-0 loss to Spain in the first round is the toughest loss at the World Cup in Costa Rica’s history.

Betting Tip

Going into the World Cup this game looked tough to predict but based on what we saw in the opening round of Group E, things look pretty clean at the moment. Both teams faced the favorites in this group in the opening round with completely different outcomes. Japan stunned the four-time World Cup champion Germany turning things around in the last 15 minutes after being a goal down at halftime. All they need to do to advance to the knockout phase is to defeat Costa Rica in this game. Costa Rica was brutally blown away by Spain losing by 7-0 and their spirit is really low at this point. Japan has a positive attitude and has shown an amazing willingness to compete which will be crucial once again in the match against Costa Rica. It may not be that easy, but Japan is winning this one.
