Match Result – Australia to Win 

Australia is currently at the top of group B in the World Cup qualifying stage with three wins under their belt. Japan is many points behind with only three, so far, which is six points behind the top two teams Australia and Saudi Arabia. Although Japan proved that they can win against Australia, it's highly doubtful they would be able to do it in their current form. 

Total Goals – Under 2.5 Goals 

Almost all of the recent games for Japan ended with fewer than 2.5 total goals scored. Specifically, four of the last five they played. The last few fixtures between Australia and Japan also ended with low-scoring outcomes – three of the last five head-to-head games they played. 

Both Teams to Score – No  

Recently both of the teams tend to end their matches with only one team scoring goals. Four of the last five matches for Australia and Japan ended that way. Also, the last time they faced each other the game ended without both teams scoring goals.

Team News, Injuries, and Preview for Japan vs Australia 

The Asia World Cup qualifier between Japan and Australia will be an interesting one because currently, Australia is at the top of group B, while Japan is six points behind them, which is a lot. Technically, Japan could get promoted to the fourth sage even with that big of a point difference, but it's highly doubtful that they will climb up to automatic promotion. 

Also, while Japan won plenty of their matches against Australia recently, their form suggests that they will most likely lose. When it comes to goals scored – we don't believe there will be many considering most of their recent head-to-head matches ended with few goals.
