Japan Preview

Japan vs Canada Predictions Picks Betting Odds International Friendly

Japan is considered one of the powers of the Asian Confederation and has not missed any of the editions since the World Cup France 1998, making this its seventh consecutive participation. Before making their debut, they will face Canada in this international friendly match and will try to continue their five-game unbeaten streak, with three wins and two draws.

It is worth highlighting the defensive performance of the Japanese national team, as they have not allowed any goals in their matches, and in fact in their last match last September, they drew 0-0 against Ecuador.

Absences: Not reported.

Probable lineup: Shuichi Gonda; Hiroki Sakai, Maya Yoshida, Takehiro Tomiyasu, Hiroki Ito; Wataru Endo, Hidemasa Morita; Junya Ito, Takumi Minamino, Takefusa Kubo; Takuma Asano.

Canada Preview

Canada became the first CONCACAF invitee to the World Cup Qatar 2022 after finishing in first place in the Octagonal, where it won eight games, drew four and lost two.

The North American team returns to the World Cup after 36 years, since its last participation was in Mexico 1986. On November 11, the team played a friendly match against Bahrain, which ended in a 2-2 draw. So far, Canada has not been able to win its last two friendlies, losing to Uruguay by a score of 0-2 in September.

Absences: Not reported.

Probable lineup: Milan Borjan; Kamal Miller, Steven Vitoria, Alistair Johnston; Atiba Hutchinson; Richie Laryea, Stephen Eustaquio, Mark-Anthony Kaye, Jonathan Osorio; Jonathan David, Cyle Larin.

JefeBet Prediction

It is possible that the coaches will opt to rotate their starting players for this match, especially considering that in recent days several renowned players have been sidelined due to injuries, so it is unlikely that Canada will give minutes to Alphonso Davies, one of its key players.

The fact that a fast player like him is not on the field could slow the game down, something that could be advantageous for Japan.

Prediction: Japan wins by a score of 1-0.
