As part of the next match of the group stage of the OI-2020, the players of the national teams of France and Japan will come face to face. Which of the opponents will get the victory in this meeting? Our sports portal gives a forecast for this match!

France (U23)

The French team was able to make it to the OI following the results of the 2019 European Championship. Before the start of the largest tournament of the 4th anniversary, the French were considered one of the main contenders for victory, given the fact that the players were declared for the tournament for France. However, so far the French do not justify the hopes placed on them. In the opening round, the "tricolor" lost to Mexico with a score of 1: 4, after which they defeated the South African team with great difficulty (4:3).

Japan (U23)

The Japanese national team plays at the OI as the host of the tournament. In Rio, the nominal guests did not represent a formidable force, which affected the results. The Japanese team lost to Nigeria (4: 5), drew with Colombia and defeated Sweden, which was not enough to reach the playoffs of the tournament. In the opening match, Japan minimally beat South Africa (1: 0), after which it was able to deal with Mexico (2: 1), contrary to the forecasts of bookmakers.

Statistics and figures:

  • The guests are listed as the favorite of the meeting;
  • France has 2 wins in 5 matches;
  • Japan has a 3-match winning streak;
  • The last face-to-face meeting between the rivals ended with a score of 3:1 in favor of Japan.


Most likely, France will play to win this match. After all, the Asian team has already scored 6 points and secured an exit to the playoffs. We bet that the team of "tricolor" will be able to win in the upcoming confrontation.
