Japan vs El Salvador: Top Free Betting Tips
As the football world turns its attention to the international break, Japan takes on the challenge of El Salvador for a thrilling showdown on June 15. Their last meeting was four years ago, where Japan claimed a 2-0 victory. El Salvador will be seeking redemption, while Japan aims to continue their winning streak and reinforce their dominance.
Match Result & Both Teams to Score Prediction: Japan & BTTS – No
Neither Japan nor El Salvador have won in recent international outings. The Blue and White are on a six-match winless run while Japan's last triumph came in the 2022 World Cup against Spain. They will fancy their chances against the lesser-known El Salvador, whom they beat 2-0 in their last outing. The visitors at Toyota Stadium have not scored in their last three outings and look unlikely to trouble the Samurai Blue, who had one of the best defences ahead of the Qatar extravaganza. Based on this, we are backing a win for Japan while ensuring they are the only ones getting on the scoreboard.
Total Goals Prediction: Under 2.5 Goals
El Salvador's scoring woes are well known. Not only have they failed to score in their last three outings but their tally in their last five outings stands at a measly two. Japan are a defend first score later side, who have only scored more than two goals once in their last ten outings. Their last meeting saw only two goals, all by the Japanese men. With the Blue and White struggling to get on the scoreboard regularly and the Samurai Blue rarely scoring more than 2 goals, we are backing Under 2.5 Goals in this meeting.
Correct Score Prediction: 2-0 to Japan
Based on recent form and team statistics, it is highly likely that Japan will emerge victorious with a 2-0 scoreline. The Japanese national football team has shown consistency in their performance, scoring two or more goals five times in their last ten outings. They have also displayed a solid defensive approach, conceding only nine goals in their last ten matches, keeping a clean sheet thrice in this period, against the USA, Ecuador and South Korea. With El Salvador failing to score in their last three outings, Japan will be aiming to keep a clean sheet while scoring two goals to secure a comfortable 2-0 win.
Japan vs El Salvador: Form, Recent Games, and News
The Samurai Blue have displayed mixed performances in their recent matches. While they managed to secure a victory against Spain and Germany at the 2022 World Cup, their form has been inconsistent, with three defeats and a draw in their last six outings. The team will be looking to bounce back after their recent loss to Colombia and three winless matches. They are likely to focus on shoring up their defence, as they have conceded goals in each of their recent seven matches. With fixtures against Peru and Germany prior to the Asian Cup approaching fast, they are running out of time to be in their best shape.
El Salvador Preview
On the other hand, El Salvador is currently going through a difficult period. They have faced a series of defeats in their last six matches, including losses to the USA, Honduras, Nicaragua, and Peru. Their winless streak and struggles in both attack and defence have raised concerns about their form. Conceding goals in their previous 11 matches has exposed their defensive vulnerabilities, which they will need to address ahead of the clash with Japan. It will be crucial for El Salvador to regroup, work on their defensive solidity, and find ways to be more clinical in front of the goal to improve their chances of a positive outcome.
