Japan hosts Saudi Arabia in round 8 of the third stage of the World Cup qualification. The match will be played on Tuesday, February 1st at Saitama Stadium (Saitama)
The Japanese national team not only regularly plays at the World Cup, but also shows itself very well there. In Russia, Blue Samurais even were close to reaching the quarterfinals. Now the team is in second place in the qualification standings. In the last round, the Japanese quite confidently beat the Chinese national team at home (2-0).

The national team of Saudi Arabia shows very good football. Yes, the team cannot boast of high results at the World Cup, but it gets there consistently. And now the Green Falcons are in first place in the qualification standings. In the last match, they defeated the national team of Oman with a minimum score of 1-0.
Of course, the national teams of Japan and Saudi Arabia have a rich history of head-to-head matches. They played against each other very often, and if you take the last five games, the advantage is on the side of the Japanese team, which gained two victories. At the same time, the teams tied only once. Back in 1993, they did not score goals. In the last head-to-head match, Saudi Arabia beat Japan with a 1-0 score. Now Japan is the favorite. Moreover, it seems that bookmakers do not believe in the success of the Arabians at all. But I think that this is not entirely true. In my opinion, the Green Falcons will score at least one goal.
