Japan – Brazil Match Preview
- After booking their place at the 2022 World Cup, Japan are set to test their skills against one of the very best teams in world football, Brazil, in this friendly encounter. The Samurai Blue swept Paraguay aside by a 4-1 scoreline in their last friendly, but this will be a much tougher assignment against a side that have scored 3+ goals against them in five straight H2Hs.
- While Japan enter this with the confidence of an eight-game unbeaten run (W7, D1), the most notable results in that stretch were a pair of victories against #42 ranked Australia. Perhaps Japan’s three clashes against current top-five ranked nations by FIFA across the last five years are more relevant, and they all ended in defeat, though they did at least get on the scoresheet twice.
- Stability in the Brazil camp seems to be paying dividends, as manager of almost six years Tite recently secured a record points haul in a South American World Cup qualification cycle with a game to spare (45). That run of results saw Brazil rise to become the new world #1 ranked team, a tag they justified by naming a strong starting XI which demolished South Korea 5-1 last time out.
- The Seleção may expect a similarly dominant display in this encounter, and that would extend a 100% unbeaten record against Japan (W10, D2) in which they scored an average of 2.83 goals per match. Combine that historical record with their 4+ goal haul in each of the last four internationals, and this could turn out to be a long evening for the hosts.
- Players to watch: Japan’s Daichi Kamada looked a player full of confidence last time out, scoring and assisting in his first international since lifting the Europa League trophy with club side Frankfurt. As for Brazil, Neymar consolidated his 82% scoring rate from penalties with a spot kick goal either side of half-time last time out.
- Hot stat: Brazil haven’t conceded more than a single goal in any of their last nine away internationals (W6, D3).
