Japan Stats & Form
Japan made the headlines at the World Cup with the opening game win against Germany. They conceded a goal early on but didn’t back down and managed to turn things around in the last 15 minutes of the game. That is definitely the biggest win for Japan in World Cup history but they spit almost everything away with the loss to Costa Rica in the next game.
Now Japan is in the second position with 3 points and a 2-2 goal differential. A win against Spain will definitely send them to the next round and in case of a draw, they will need Costa Rica to hold on to no more than a loss by one goal against Germany, which is something they do not want to bet on. In case of a loss against Spain, there is no chance for Japan to advance regardless of the outcome of the game between Costa Rica and Germany.
Japan made it to the second round in the previous World Cup in Russia and is very close to doing that again.
Spain Stats & Form
Spain started the World Cup by defeating Costa Rica by 7-0 which is, and will probably stay, the largest win in the competition. Spain had not much pressure in the next game against Germany but they have reason to regret not winning after they allowed a late goal which ended this game in a tie.
Now, Spain goes in the last game of the group stage at the top of the group with great chances to advance. A win or a draw against Japan send them through and they can get in the next stage even with a loss to Japan if Germany does not defeat Costa Rica by a really large margin.
Spain won the World Cup back in 2010.

The total goal margin is set at 2.5 with 1.70 to go over and 2.10 for under.
Japan did the impossible defeating Germany in the opening game but after the loss to Costa Rica they are now facing a difficult challenge in the game against Spain. There is no question which of these two teams is the better one, but so was the case in Japan vs. Germany game and we all saw what happened. Japan is a die-hard team and they will do absolutely anything to at least stay undefeated in this game. The question is how tough Spain will play since they are in a much better situation but that doesn’t guarantee anything to Japan. Spain is playing really well with great ball movement and creating scoring opportunities at will. Knowing that Japan will have to attack, there will be even more space for Spain which they will use to score on a couple of occasions which will eventually lead them to win this game.
