Japan takes on Senegal in Group H of the 2018 FIFA World Cup, with both teams coming into this game on the back of winning their opening matches.
Japan: Japan started their opening game against Colombia very quickly, and found themselves with a man advantage as a result. After they stunned ten-man Colombia 2-1 with goals by Shinji Kagawa and Yuya Osako, Japan should continue to cause problems for teams.
Senegal: Senegal edged out Poland in their opening group game, a poor match of very few chances. Also, with a disciplined and compact performance, Senegal made a mockery of their pre-tournament form that saw them win just once in five friendlies.
Conclusion: After opening their 2018 World Cup Group H campaigns with victories, Japan and Senegal will look to secure qualification for the knockout stages when they clash on Sunday in Ekaterinburg. A tight game is expected between two evenly matched teams. However, Japan has a better chance than their price, so we give them a little advantage.
