Germany vs Japan World Cup Prediction and Betting Picks
After winning the World Cup in 2014, Germany was the disappointment of the tournament in 2018 when they finished last in their group. They became the fourth of the last five defending champions to fail to qualify for the knockout stages. With a strong defense and midfield, the only question is whether their attacking play will be enough.
For Japan, this will be a young team that is afforded little to no expectations. Only four of the 26 players on their roster are over 30 years old. Japan qualified for the knockout stages in 2018 but would blow a two-goal second-half lead to Belgium and were knocked out in the Round of 16.
Japan is not an opponent that should be overlooked, but Germany is much better in all reality. Even with attacking play that hasn’t proven to be up to par with the heavy favorites, Germany should be able to do enough to get the win. With that in mind, it’s hard to see Germany winning this game by two or more goals. Bet Japan to cover the spread.
Our Germany vs Japan World Cup prediction tonight will be Japan +1.5 at BetOnline.
