Colombia vs Japan World Cup Tips
The Columbians and the Japanese will inaugurate Group H with an exotic duel, which also took place at the Brazilian World Cup in 2014, when the South Americans scored 4-1.
Pekerman’s players are favorites of this match and must get all three points in order not to complicate their situation in this group, which is one of the most balanced in the World Cup (Senegal, Poland, Japan, and Colombia).
Colombia has the strength of offensive players Muriel, Bacca and Falcao, but also two midfielders such as James Rodriguez or Cuadrado.
Japan is an ambitious selection of energetic players like Okazaki and Inui, but also with offensive class footballers such as Shibasaki, Honda or Kagawa, which can destabilize Colombia’s defense that leaves enough room for the opponent.
Colombia vs Japan Prediction
For these reasons, I think both of them will score, and the odds of 2.25 are very appealing to me.
