In the next meeting of the group stage of the OI-2020 in Tokyo, the volleyball players of the national teams of Japan and the Dominican Republic will come together. On whose side will the victory be in this confrontation? Our sports portal gives a forecast for this match.

Japan (w)

The Japanese team after the opening victory at the tournament over Kenya could not oppose anything to Serbia, Brazil and Korea. The current results have determined the team from Asia to the fifth place in the group. To reach the playoffs of the tournament, Asian women must necessarily beat the Dominicans in the next match, and win unconditionally, trying to do it in fewer games.

Dominican Republic (w)

The volleyball players of the national team of the Dominican Republic leave quite a pleasant impression from their game. The worst game in the tournament for this team is the meeting against the team from Serbia, where a "dry" defeat was recorded. In addition to this failure, Dominicana also lost to Brazil and Korea, but five sets were played in each of the matches. In the last match against Kenya, we managed to get a "dry" victory.

Statistics and figures:

  • The competitors have approximately equal chances of winning;
  • Japan has lost 4 times in 5 matches;
  • Dominicana has 3 defeats in 5 meetings;
  • The last face-to-face meeting between the rivals ended with a score of 3:2 in favor of Japan.

Forecast                                

The Japanese women played their worst match at the tournament, in which they lost to South Korea. Dominicana is made of strong and stocky volleyball players. I think that this team is able to beat the hosts of the tournament for a good quote.
