Japan vs. Spain Prediction

Prediction, Odds & Betting tips for Japan vs. Spain | Group Stage, World Cup Qatar 2022

  • Where: Khalifa International Stadium, Doha, Qatar
  • When: Thursday, November 1, 10 pm local time

Spain is one of the teams that left the best impression in Qatar so far, and we need to say that against Germany, they deserved to take all three points. The big rivals played 1-1, but the Red Fury was significantly better. As for the Japanese team, they had a match point to go through and reach the knockout stage. However, losing to Costa Rica, which was the upset of the day, complicated the situation for the Samurai.

Samurai were devastated following a loss to Costa Rica. And how wouldn’t they when missing an opportunity to record one of the biggest successes in their football history? 

Japan was a massive favorite against Costa Rica, and they justified that on the field, pressuring the rivals and dictating the game’s pace. But their defense lost focus in the 81st minute, with the Ticos hitting the back of the net, getting back into the race for the Round of 16, and preventing the Samuari from securing their ticked to the knockout stage.

This crew oscillates a lot, and you can see that by the recent results, where Japan has two wins and losses with one draw in the past five encounters.


We aren’t going to lie to you, Spain was one of the teams that impressed us, as well as the majority of the spectators. Their fluid game, with lots of nice and attractive passes, is unsolvable for the rivals, and the only thing this crew lacks to be the no.1 favorite for the title is a striker. 

Alvaro Morata did score against Germany, but he ruined at least two excellent chances. His inconsistency is something that had a massive impact on the Spanish performance, though Luis Enrique often leaves the former Chelsea and Juventus striker on the bench.

Gavi and Pedri are a pure joy to watch because they seem very flamboyant and laser-precise when teaming up and attacking their rivals.

Japan vs. Spain Head to Head

Back in 2001, these two teams had a friendly meeting and Spain got out as the winner from that one, 1-0. 

Japan vs. Spain Prediction

Spain is at least one level above the Japanese team, who does have quality, don’t get us wrong, but isn’t capable of beating the Red Fury. Also, the morale of the Samurai is shaken following a very unpleasant loss to Costa Rica, and for sure, that will have a certain negative impact. 

Our verdict: Spain wins
