Japan vs Turkey Predictions and Top Betting Tips
Japan vs Turkey will be a curious game and a good training match for both sides. Here are our predictions.
Both Teams To Score Prediction: Yes
We all know that Germany are out of shape right now and have been in the last few years. But Japan really gave them hell a couple of days ago. Japan beat Germany 4-1 in their last friendly game. They will definitely score against Turkey, who concede goals against far weaker teams every game. Of course, the visitors have a solid attack right now too, so the BTTS should be certain in this game.
Match Result Prediction: Japan to Win
This is a friendly game and we can expect anything but based on the recent performances of the two national teams, we think that Japan have a better chance. They have really taken these friendlies seriously and they play as if it is a massive official fixture. We saw it against Germany last week and we saw it against Peru a couple of months ago. They beat both national teams with 4-1. We expect them to beat Turkey too.
Correct Score Prediction: 2-1 to Japan
This game could easily end up with a bigger scoreline but we prefer to go safe with those friendly matches. Turkey are definitely not a weak team but Japan have been a lot more impressive lately. When we compare the Japan vs Turkey line ups, we think that there is quality in both squads but Japan may be better prepared here. Their chemistry is obvious and they play exceptional football.
Japan vs Turkey Team Previews
Japan have been extraordinary since last year. We all know how well they played in the World Cup. They even reached the 1/8 finals and barely lost to Croatia then. It seems that their growth continues and we saw them beat Germany once again last week, in a friendly game, with 4-1. They can literally score against any team at this point.
Turkey seem to have finally found the chemistry and the correct squad and tactics. They had a bad period over the last couple of years but now look very dangerous. Their attack is incredibly effective and they score multiple goals per game, almost every time. Their only issue is the defense – they concede against most teams and Japan will not be an exception.
