Belgium v Japan betting preview  

Belgium Golden Generation are shining bright

Belgium were one of just three teams (Croatia and Uruguay the others) to emerge from the group stage with a maximum nine points. Easy wins over Panama and Tunisia followed what was little more than a ‘B Team’ game against England which saw the Red Devils record a 1-0 win. The Belgians were the top scorers in the group stage, rattling in 9 goals. They will now have an easier task in the last 16 round, but potentially a much tougher quarterfinal tie against Brazil. The Red Devils are unbeaten in their last 22 games (W17 D5)

Roberto Martinez fulfilled his promise to give rest to his main stars against England last time out. Key men Eden Hazard and Romelu Lukaku are fit again to start here as well as defenders Vincent Kompany and Thomas Vermaelen who played a part in the las Group G encounter. Thomas Meunier and Yannick Carrasco will be restored as wing backs, while Dries Mertens will complete the offensive duo behind Lukaku. Despite scoring a stunning goal against England, Adnan Januzaj will sit on bench.

Lucky Japan have already exceeded expectations

For the firt time in World Cup history a team has reached the knockout stage thanks to the Fair Play rule as Japan only squeezed out Senegal to take the runners-up spot in Group H by virtue of Fair Play points due to picking up less bookings than the African team. Both teams finished with a 1W 1D 1L record. The Blue Samurai beat Colombia 2-1, came back from a goal down to draw 2-2 with Senegal and settled for a 1-0 defeat against Poland in the final match. They were one of just two teams along with Argentina to emerge from the group with only four points.

Head coach Akira Nishino rung the changes against Poland, but he is expected to recall his regular starters for this meeting. It means that the likes of Shinji Kagawa, Takashi Inui, Yuya Osako and Mateo Hasebe all return to the starting line-up. Hence, Keisuke Honda and Shinji Okazaki will be benched. Southampton Maya Yoshida will lead the defense alongside Gen Shoji, and full backs Yuto Nagatomo and Hiroki Sakai.
