Japan downed Indonesia 3-1 in their last match, with this allowing the nation to regroup following their loss to Iraq. 

  • Bahrain have scored one goal in each of their three Asian Cup matches
  • Bahrain have lost four of their last six in all competitions (W2)
  • Japan have seen BTTS in all three of their Asian Cup games
  • Japan have won 12 of their last 13 in all competitions (L1) 

Head To Head


Japan have won seven of their last nine meetings, with Bahrain winning just two matches in this time. 

Bahrain Form 


Bahrain have impressed at the Asian Cup this year, with two wins and a single defeat seeing them into the knockout stages of the competition. 

Their wins over Malaysia and Jordan were made all the more impressive as they were comfortably beaten 3-1 in their opening clash with South Korea. Their ability to regroup is something that could be vital the further they head into the tournament. 

However, while Bahrain have scored in each of their three matches at the Asian Cup, they were easily beaten in the only real test they have faced the the competition when they took on South Korea. 

Japan Form 


Japan began the Asian Cup with a brilliant 4-2 win over Vietnam to start their campaign with a statement win. 

However, they were then consigned to a surprising 2-1 loss to Iraq that made their 3-1 victory against Indonesia even more important. They were rewarded for their second win with a clash against Bahrain in the knockout stages. 

With seven wins in their last nine meetings with Bahrain, it is no wonder why Japan are the $1.22 favourites with bet365 to win this one. 

Verdict

I am backing Japan to win this match as they fail to keep a clean sheet for the fourth match in a row at the Asian Cup.
