Score prediction for Japan vs Spain

Spain started the 2022 World Cup with a 7-0 goal feast over Costa Rica. But in the big match against Germany in the second party, Team Matador had to settle for a 1-1 draw.

Meanwhile, Japan opened the tournament with a surprise result in the form of a 2-1 victory over Germany. There is a question mark regarding the consistency of Samurai Blue which then lost 0-1 to Costa Rica in the second match.

For this reason, Japan will try to rise in order to ward off the inconsistent label. The hope, of course, is to be able to surprise again by taking down the giant like in the first fight.

Meanwhile Spain, which only needs a draw to qualify for the last 16 of the 2022 World Cup, will also not play it safe to avoid potential surprises from Japan.

However, in terms of player material, Spain will still be able to outperform Japan even if Luis Enrique rotates his squad though. On paper, Team Matador could have won 2-0 over Samurai Blue.
