Saudi Arabia vs Japan: 3rd Round Asian Qualifiers Match Preview

Saudi Arabia

Saudi Arabia are once again in an excellent spot to qualify for the World Cup in back-to-back attempts. After coming through the second round with a lot of comfort, the third round has seen Saudi Arabia reproduce the same form. The run of seven consecutive victories places Herve Renard’s team in a good position going into this big match. Mohammed Al-Breik, Salem Al-Dawsari, and Abdullah Otayf are unavailable due to injuries.

Japan

The loss against Oman has placed Japan in a spot of bother and the team will be very keen on getting back to winning ways as soon as possible. The Oman defeat should also not raise any questions about the team’s playing style, as they dominated the game from start to finish. Japan have qualified regularly to the World Cup for almost 3 decades. The Japanese will be able to celebrate the return of Ao Tanaka and Takumi Minamino.
