Japan to Win Second-Half

This is an interesting competitive international fixture as both Japan and Oman are on winning runs. Given their pedigree in Asia, Japan should make little work of Oman, who have lost 9 of the 11 meetings between them. The visitors can hold of the Samurai Blue in the first half but it looks unlikely the second-half will go their way, consequently our pick in their favour.

Over 2.5 Goals

Four of the last five matches involving Oman have finished with an Over 2.5 goals scoreline. The statistics board reads five in six for Japan. With both sides finding the back of the net with relative ease and wanting to start the qualifying campaign brightly, we expect a high scoring affair in this meeting.

Both Teams to Score: No

Oman’s winning run has seen them score against Asian minnows, while Japan has made it look easy against Serbia, Tajikistan, and South Korea. Interestingly, against teams of Oman’s calibre, Mongolia and Myanmar, the Samurai Blue have kept a clean sheet. With goals and clean sheets of extreme importance in the qualifying campaign, the hosts should keep their rivals silent.

Japan vs Oman Fixture Preview

Japan

Hajime Moriyasu will kickstart Japan’s 2022 World Cup qualifying campaign with a home game against Oman. The fixture could not have come at a better time as the Samurai Blue’s domestic campaign enters its serious end and the expected first-team roster led by Kyogo Furuhashi and Yuya Osako are firing on all cylinders.

Oman

It is the beginning of a long journey as Branko Ivankovic prepares his charges for the trip to Japan. Qualifying for Qatar 2022 is tough, especially against the Samurai Blue, who have not lost to Oman in eleven meetings. The odds get worse given the fact Oman has only scored two goals in this period, which will further make the atmosphere gloomy.
