Japan vs USA Prediction & Match Preview

Japan vs USA 
International – Friendlies 
Date: Friday, 23 September 2022 
Kick-off at 13:30 UK/ 14:30 CET 
Venue: Merkur Spiel-Arena. 

Japan had a great campaign in the previous edition of the World Cup and they will be determined to repeat their heroics this time around as well. Meanwhile United States did not qualify for the 2018 World Championships but they made amends with a triumph in the subsequent Gold Cup. 

As of now both these teams will be taking part in the World Cup this December in Qatar, and as a result they have some important days coming ahead. 

The Japanese received a bye to the second round in the Asian World Cup qualifiers and they managed to win group F in style. In fact, they had a 100 percentage winning record at the end of the campaign and they had a combined score card of 46-2 in the process. 

While they managed to find the back of the net 46 times, none of the others squads could even do that 20 times. At the same time every single other squad in the group let in six times more goals than the Japanese had conceded. 

Then they progressed to the Third Round and there they secured a second-place finish and that too by trailing just one point below the toppers. Anyhow they secured a ticket to the 2022 World Cup. 

Meanwhile not only did the United States win the last Gold Cup but they also received a bye to the Third Round of the CONCACAF qualifiers. And at the end of that run they managed to secure a third-place finish as well which made them eligible for an entry to the World Cup. 

Considering these observations expect a high-scoring thriller between these two teams this Friday. 

The Japanese were unbeaten in 12 of their previous 14 overall fixtures, and they even went on a six-game winning streak in the process. 

On the other hand, USA were unbeaten in 25 of their past 28 overall matches, and in the process they went on a nine-game winning stretch. All through this streak, they found the back of the net in plenty too. 

For these reasons, anticipate goals to come from either end of the pitch this weekend.
