Note that odds change frequently so ensure to confirm your bet slip with Betfred before placing your bet.

Both teams to find the net

Japan has been phenomenal in recent fixtures, scoring a total of 28 goals in the last three fixtures, albeit, against weaker opponents. In this game, the hosts will be looking for their first goal against Serbia after failing to do so in the previous two encounters since 2010. On the other hand, Serbia has been consistent in scoring goals and come into this fixture with eight goals in their last three games. Both sides have scored in all their last three games which is why we think there will be goals on both ends of the pitch.

More than two goals expected in this game

Our second tip is at least three goals in this fixture. There have been lots of goals for both sides in recent fixtures which signal what to expect in this game. Japan has won its last three games against Tajikistan (4-1), Myanmar (10-0) and Mongolia (14-0). On the Serbian side, there have two draws and one victory in their last three games against Jamaica (1-1), Azerbaijan (2-1) and Portugal (2-2).

Victory for Serbia

Serbia has won all the last two games it played against Japan and we don’t see the hosts breaking that record. Playing against poor sides such as Tajikistan, Myanmar and Mongolia may only give Japan false confidence coming into this fixture, especially against Serbia that has faced stronger opponents in recent games.

Game Preview: Japan Looking for the First Victory over Serbia in the Third Meeting

Our game preview sheds more light on this fixture so read on for more details.

Japan

Despite losing in all previous meetings with Serbia, an interesting twist in this fixture that Japan’s manager, Hajime Moriyasu, is yet to taste defeat against the travelling manager, Dragan Stojkovic. The two managers have met four times, with Japan’s tactician winning one and getting three draws. In that regard, Hajime Moriyasu hopes to keep his unbeaten record against his Friday opponent in this international friendly fixture. Hajime Moriyasu will be in charge of Japan for the first time in nearly three years. He previously managed the national team and averaged 2.22 points per match in 36 games.

Serbia

Serbia is ranked 25th by FIFA, only three places above Japan. With that, we expect a tough duel between these teams given that they have been consistent in recent fixtures. Serbia has not lost a match in their last five fixtures and should fancy a third consecutive victory in three meetings with Japan. The visiting manager is yet to record victory against his Friday host but should bank on his team to get a result in this game. The Serbian averages 2.00 points after four games of two wins and two draws.
