Japan vs Chile Predictions
Will Chile top the Group C table? Will Japan prove to be a tough team by claiming their first win? We have a prediction for the match. Take a look.
Can Japan win this match?
The 2019 Copa America marks Japan’s second Copa America season as they declined the Copa America invitation twice in 2011 and 2016. After losing the 2019 AFC Asian Cup to Qatar, Japan faced Colombia at the Friendlies which also resulted in a 0-1 goalless loss.
Japan is currently on a 3 game undefeated streak, with a recent 2-0 win against El Salvador. Kensuke Nagai was the star performer of the match who scored a brace for the team in the first half of the match. They were able to take 6 shots on target and had a very strong defense as El Salvador were not able to take even a single shot on target.
Will Chile Seal their First Win?
The 2 times reigning champion will play their first 2019 Copa America match against Japan this Tuesday. Chile is on a transitional phase as their previous 3 matches at the Friendlies have resulted in a loss, draw, and a win respectively. Their recent match was against Haiti who took a lead in the first half.
Chile remained goalless in the first half and was able to tally the score with Eduardo’s 69th-minute goal. The match was a narrow escape from a draw until Fuenzalida’s 71st-minute winning goal. Chile sealed a win with a score of 2-1 and will be playing their next match against Japan at Copa America.
Will it be a Chile Win? – Our Prediction
Japan is playing for the second time at the Copa America and this is their first match of the season. Japan played exceptionally well at the AFC Asian Cup as they were able to reach the finals by defeating all the top teams of the league. Their performance at the semifinals was remarkable as they defeated Iran 3-0. Check it out.
Chile will try to defend their title this season and in order to do so, they will have to top the Group C table and advance to the next stage. Japan will fight hard to claim a win this Tuesday and will not go down without a fight but chances are high for Chile to win over Japan.
