    JP U23 vs SP U23 Dream11 Prediction: Japan U23’s quest for an Olympic gold medal in the men’s football tournament will face a massive challenge in Spain U23 when the sides meet in the semi-finals on Tuesday. The Samurai Warriors cruised through Group A with three wins from three, before seeing off New Zealand on penalties in the last eight. Spain, meanwhile, have had their fair share of challenges, including two injuries, but they also took 120 minutes to negotiate their quarter-final fixture.

    After a 0-0 draw against New Zealand following extra time, Japan progressed over the Kiwi’s via a penalty shootout to setup a semi-final clash with Spain, who beat Ivory Coast in a hugely entertaining contest. After looking like heading out of the tournament after a goal in the first minute of second half stoppage time put Ivory Coast 1-2 infront, Spain rallied to equalise just two minutes later before going on to blitz their opponents in extra time, ultimately emerging as 5-2 victors. Spain’s fantastic extra time performance bodes well for them here, although they will need to show patience against a Japanese defence that have conceded just a single goal across the competition so far.
