Brazil 1/4 to beat Japan in Thursday’s international friendly
Competition: International friendly
Market: Brazil to beat Japan
Odds: 1/4 @ Bet365
While many will bemoan the fact that club football is taking a two-week break, there are a number of very interesting games to come on the international scene as the playoffs take place, and Japan host Brazil in a friendly on Thursday.
Japan squeezed through qualification for the World Cup, topping their group. 20 points from 10 games is a modest total, and both Saudi Arabia and Australia finished with 19 points, conveying just how tight the group was. 17 goals scored and just seven conceded conveys that they are solid across the pitch. While Brazil are a superb outfit, they may find that their Japanese hosts will show them very little respect as they look to get their fans into a frenzy by taking one of the biggest scalps in world football.
It was a superb campaign for Brazil as they topped their qualifying group. The fact they did so with the likes of Uruguay, Argentina, Colombia and Chile in their group is exceptionally impressive. 12 wins, five draws and one loss show how well they played, while 41 goals and just 11 conceded is outstanding, and they look like a very good bet to win the World Cup again. The two sides will be looking forward to taking their places at the showpiece events whilst watching teams across the world battle in their playoff games. While Japan will make it a very difficult game for the visitors, we are backing Brazil to win this one with odds of 1/4 from Bet365.
