Japan v Australia Prediction - Form (All Competitions)


Japan have been inconsistent in their contests this round, winning just once and losing twice. Australia, on the other hand have yet to lose in this round. Let’s take an in-depth look into both teams.

Japan v Australia Prediction - Preview


Japan are in the middle of the AFC Group B Table with 3 points. They have had one win, two losses and a goal difference of -1 (1 scored, 2 conceded). They dropped their opener to Oman (0-1), bounced back against China (1-0), but fell again to Saudi Arabia (0-1). Yuya Osako scored Japan’s only goal this round against China, and the young, inexperienced Samurai Blue have struggled to find their footing throughout this stage. Coach Hajime Moriyasu are now pressured to secure a playoff slot against a tough and dominant Australian side. Osako, Takumi Minamino, Maya Yoshida and Gaku Shibasaki are expected to lead the charge for the Samurai.


Australia are currently on top of the Group B Table with 9 points. They have 3 wins in the round, and a goal difference of 6 (7 scored, 1 conceded). All their victories in this round have been impressive, as they trashed China in the opener (3-0), stole one from Vietnam at home (1-0), and conceded just 1 goal to Oman (3-1). Awer Mabil, Martin Duke, Mitchell Duke and Rhyan Grant came on big for the Socceroos in these contests, intensifying their drive towards a World Cup finals slot. Coach Graham Arnold and his now face their toughest challenge as they go up against their longtime rival at their home stadium. Can they keep the momentum going?

Japan v Australia Prediction - Final Thoughts

While Japan traditionally have always had the upper hand against the Aussies, things look different this time around. Despite having home turf, the Samurai Blue are lacking the international experience to contain one of Australia’s best-assembled squads in years. Plus, with Japan looking out of form compared to the undefeated Socceroos, we can say that the men from Down Under will grind out a tough win against a young but raw Rising Sun army. Let’s take a look at the prediction.
