Japan vs Spain will be a crucial Group E encounter in the FIFA World Cup 2022, which Khalifa International Stadium, Al Rayyan, will host this Thursday (1st December) night. 

After a stunning win against Germany by 2-1, Japan suffered a 1-0 defeat against Costa Rica.

On the other hand, Spain started this World Cup with a 7-0 win. Then, they drew against Germany with a 1-1 scoreline.


JPN vs SPN Match Details

Match: Japan vs Spain

JPN vs SPN Group F Scenarios

Both teams are eyeing winning this game to qualify for the Round of 16, while a defeat is likely to end their journey in this tournament.

While Spain would be even happy with a draw result to comfortably move to the next round, then Japan will have to watch out Costa Rica vs Germany match result, where the Asian team will exit from this tournament if Costa Rica win. However, a draw or Germany's victory will put Japan to the tie-breaking criteria (vs Costa Rica in a draw; vs Germany in their win).

While Japan will be clearly out of this tournament with another defeat, Spain can still have some chances despite a defeat in their last group stage game, but only if Costa Rica fail to beat Germany. Just like Japan in the case of a draw, the final group stage game loser Spain will also battle for the tie-breaking criteria if Costa Rica vs Germany match finishes with a draw result (tie-breaking criteria against Costa Rica) or Germany’s victory (tie-breaking criteria against Germany).

JPN vs SPN Match Preview

After stunning Germany, Japan missed out on their golden chance against Costa Rica. Now, the Asian giants once again have to beat the odds to reach the next round. While Japan aren’t overly dependent on a few players for goal-scoring opportunities, they haven’t played their true potential in this WC yet.

The young Spanish team is running full of confidence, who lost only once in 11 games in 2022 (7 wins and 3 draws). Luis Enrique’s boys are ready to inspire the nation with fearless football.
