China vs Japan predictions 


China host Japan in Qatar. Japan have an impressive front third, while China’s defensive issues were exposed in their last match. I’m tipping BTTS No and Japan to win.

  • China have seen BTTS No in 6 of their last 7 matches (World Cup Qualifiers).
  • Japan have won 5 of their last 6 matches (World Cup Qualifiers).
  • Japan have seen BTTS in 7 of their last 9 matches (World Cup Qualifiers).
  • Japan have won their last 2 matches against China (World Cup Qualifiers).

Head to Head


China have a 15-14 record against Japan with eight draws in 37 encounters.

China Form


China qualified into this next round comfortably, winning four consecutive matches.

But they failed to capitalise on this momentum, falling to a 3-0 defeat to Australia. 

China were unable to respond after a poor first half where they misplaced several passes and conceded two goals.
