Group H, FIFA World Cup 2018 match | Match Day -5

FIFA World Cup 2018

COL vs JPN Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:

Colombia would want to repeat their 2014 World Cup campaign in this World Cup as well as they stunned everyone in Brazil by reaching the quarter finals and on their way they scored some awesome goals through James Rodriguez, who was the highlight of the last world cup and even got his dream move to the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu. Now that he plays in Allianz Arena, he would want to use this World Cup as another opportunity to leave people in wonder with his goals and also build his next career milestone. The volley he scored against Uruguay will always be one of the most impressive goals in a World Cup campaign and now he would team up with another influential striker Radamel Falcao to once again carry their team to the finals as they did in last year. At the moment, Colombia is unbeaten in their last four international games and they would want to do better because the countries like Brazil, Argentina, Germany and Spain failing to win their opening matches in the World Cup meaning that things would not be that easy for any country so they would want to hold it off against Japan at any cost.

On the other hand, the Japanese may be confident as they defeated Paraguay in their last world cup warm up game but they would be really worried as how they have failed against both Switzerland and Ghana. They even lost four of their last six games on their way to Russia and now in their opening match they would be facing off a Colombian side that takes pride in scoring awesome goals. Japan would want to stop James Rodriguez at any cost because of the form he is in at the moment. James scored 6 goals in the qualifiers and also scored against Japan previously so he would also eye to repeat his heroics in this World Cup as well.

This FIFA World Cup 2018, Group H, 1st match is to be played at Mordovia Arena at 13:00 hours in Local time. A thrilling game awaits everyone on Match Day 6 for everyone and can be watched live on Sony LIV.

Important Updates:
12:20 PM

Despite getting few minutes on the pitch for Barcelona in the 2017-18 season,  Colombia head-coach Jose Pekerman has backed Yerry Mina for the World Cup, so we are expecting him to start in this game against Japan.

While Radamel Falcao will most probably lead the attack for Columbia with James Rodriguez giving the team a thrust for going forward.
Davinson Sanchez is also expected to be in the thick of the action for the South American team.
02:40 pm
For Japan, their fortunes will depend on two of their best players Keisuke Honda and Shinji Kagawa. Both the players will definitely start along with Maya Yoshida, Osako, and Haraguchi.
There is nothing sensational coming out from both sets of camps and all the big guns are expected to start for both the teams.
Winning formula – Columbia 6 players, Japan 5 players

COL vs JPN Dream11 FANTASY TEAM:

 

 

 

INDIA FANTASY PREDICTION:

Colombia are unbeaten in four matches but drew both of their warm-up matches for the 2018 World Cup 0-0. They have won five of their last six World Cup matches. Japan ended a five-game winless streak with a 4-2 win over Paraguay in their final World Cup warm-up match. They are underdogs going into Tuesday’s clash with Colombia. In the 2014 World Cup, Japan’s final game ended in a 4-1 defeat to Colombia. It wouldn’t be a surprise if Colombia pulled off a similarly comprehensive win here.
