JPN vs TAJ Dream11 Team Prediction Tips for Japan vs Tajikistan World Cup Qualifiers Live Score 7 June


JPN vs TAJ Dream11: Japan welcomes Tajikistan to Suita for a crucial AFC Group F World Cup qualifiers game. Japan are on an unbelievable run of form winning their last 2 games, 14-0 and 10-0 respectively. Before that, they beat a strong South Korea side 3-0 in a friendly. Tajikistan has been the best of the rest as they sit in 2nd place. They have won 3 of their 6 games and go into this game on the back of a 3-0 win over Mongolia. They are 3 points clear of 3rd place but Kyrgyzstan has a game in hand which makes the away side’s position precarious.

Date: 7th June, Monday
Kick-Off: 4 pm (IST)
Venue: Suita City Football Stadium, Japan

AFC Group F Table: Japan is 1st in the table with Tajikistan in 2nd.

JPN vs TAJ Dream11 Prediction

Captain Options

Daichi Kamada – Daichi Kamada had a wonderful season for Eintracht Frankfurt wherein he racked up 5 goals and 12 assists in Bundesliga. He created 68 chances, 33 dribbles and 27 accurate crosses as well. He also has 2 goals and 2 assists for Japan in their last 2 games.

Yuya Osako – Playing for Werder Bremen, Yuya Osako has been excellent for Japan of late. He had scored 5 times and assisted once against Myanmar and followed that up with a hattrick and an assist against Mongolia. Spearheading the attack, he will look to carry on with that form against Tajikistan now.

Differential Pick

Takumi Minamino – Not by a lot, but Minamino will feel more confident after his stint at Southampton. The forward is a good finisher if given the opportunity and will look for those opportunities against Tajikistan. He has 3 goals and 3 assists for the country in their last 2 games.

Goalkeeper – Kawashima
Defenders – Nagamoto, Ueda, Sasaki
Midfielders – Kamada (C), Tursunov, Pandzhshanbe, Dzhalilov
Forwards – Osako (VC), Minamino, Samiev

Likely Winner:

Japan are the easy favourites for the JPN vs TAJ Today Match Prediction. The home side is yet to lose a game in the group and have not even conceded a goal. On the other hand, they have scored 37 times in their 6 games and have an 8-point lead on the table. Tajikistan has cut it close in a lot of games despite doing well to sit in 2nd place. They will be no match for Japan’s prowess as the Land of the Rising Sun seem to be regulars at the World Cup.
