CHN vs JPN Dream11 Team Prediction Tips for China vs Japan World Cup Qualifiers Live Score September 7


CHN vs JPN Dream11: Japan will aim for their first points of the final Asian qualifying stage when they face China on Tuesday in Qatar, where the 2022 World Cup is to be held. A 3-0 defeat away to Australia was a very disappointing start to the campaign for the Chinese too. They had won six in a row before that game having scored a combined total of 19 goals in that run of form. They now come up against a Japan side that have a very talented and exciting generation of players that have got moves to big clubs but they started their qualification with a 1-0 defeat at home to Oman the other day and this game now takes on some significant importance.

Date: September 7, Tuesday
Kick-Off: 8:30 PM (IST)
