WORLD CUP 2022 :- Spain vs Japan Preview, Line Up, Match Info


European giants Spain will face Asian tigers Japan today in Group E. Tigers are the epitome of Japan.

Because they managed to defeat mighty Germany in the first match. If we can put up the same performance today, getting into the pre-quarters is not impossible. If they can beat Spain today, they will be the group champions. A draw would be a slim chance for them.

Germany can only secure a knockout if they win by more than one goal, draw or lose against Costa Rica. On the other hand, if they lose to Spain, they will be out of the World Cup. Spain, on the other hand, comes without any major headaches. Spain will only have to fear if Japan and Germany lose to Costa Rica in this match. Otherwise, they need to lose to Japan and Germany beat Costa Rica by six or seven goals to close the door on Spain. Otherwise, a draw would be enough to secure the knockout for the Spanish side.

Either way, Enrique and his team can look to make it to the knockout stages as group champions with a decent win. They are currently in the top spot with 4 points from 2 matches. Barring miracles, there is no doubt that Spain will reach the pre-quarters. Anyway, let's wait and see.

Japan        :- 11%
