Japan v Senegal betting preview   

Japan made a great start, but is it a false dawn?

Japan return to World Cup duty following their massive 2-1 win over Colombia. The Samurai Blue took the lead courtesy of a Shinki Kagawa penalty following a deliberate handball and a red card for Carlos Sanchez inside three minutes. However, they struggled to control the ten men of Colombia after that. Perhaps people should not be particularly surprised by their success after they scored 17 goals and conceded just seven in their 10 qualifying games, while they won six and lost twice, finishing at the top of their group.

Japan have no reason to make any changes after the good performance against Colombia. The FC Koln striker Yuya Osako stole the limelight in his team’s win over Colombia and is expected to keep Shinji Okazaki out of the starting line-up. Shinji Kagawa, Genki Haraguchi and Takashi Inui will start as offensive midfielders while Makoto Hasebe and Gaku Shibasaki will anchor the midfield. Keisuke Honda started on the bench against Colombia but made a difference with his set piece delivery when he came on to the pitch.

Senegal are warm favourites after defeating Poland

Senegal were highly impressive in their 2-1 win Poland and displayed their strengths with plenty of fast breaks against their opposition. A shocking error from Gregorz Krychowiak allowed M’Baye Niang a free run on Wojciech Szczesny and he duly tapped it in for 2-0. The Lions of Teranga have only lost one of their last 11 matches and have conceded just five goals in their last nine matches in all competitions. Aliou Cissè's could be celebrating their first World Cup finals win against non-European opposition this weekend.

Liverpool's Sadio Mane and Everton's Idrissa Gueye will surely start despite not 100% fit. Manè will join Mame Biram Diouf and Mbaye Niang upfront while Gueye will play in the middle of the park alongside Ismaila Sarr and Alfred N'Diaye. West Ham's Cheikhou Kouyate may have to settle for a place on the bench once again. Diafra Sakho and Moussa Sow provide further options upfront.
