Netherlands – Japan Women, World Cup Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR NETHERLANDS - JAPAN
Netherlands has no serious experience at World Cups, but now they want to write their history. They are doing brilliantly at the moment. The tulips took all three matches in the group, but the rivals were not that complicated either. Only Canada was a bigger name, but they have already dropped out of the tournament. However, Netherlands has six consecutive wins, which should not be underestimated.
Although it took only one victory, Japan finished second in its group and will now try to stop the Dutch. Here the most important thing is that the Japanese have little experience in their squad and almost all of them for the first time play in the world cup, because they are quite young. They did not record very good results before the tournament started, so in almost every match they had to go through quite a lot of difficulties, but eventually managed to take their own in one way or another.
We have several reasons to think that Japan can make the surprise. However, our prediction is more modest and it is the Netherlands : Clean sheet – NO at 1.59. The reasons are several. 1st tulips allow goals and are not famous with top defense, 2nd Japan are very aggressive and fight back every time. They had problems with injuries, but they showed depth in the squad and overcame it. They also do not count on just 1-2 players, but they are a team. They can withstand tension and this has already been proven. And we think that they can learn quickly from their mistakes, as against England they have done so many.
