Japan – South Africa: start of the hosts of the Olympics
We offer a forecast for the Summer Olympics match, in which the Japanese national team will host the South African team on July 22. Will the hosts of the tournament be able to get their first victory in the tournament? – the answer is in our material.
The Japanese national team entered the tournament as the host, which freed the team from qualifying. At the Olympics in Brazil, the team could not get out of the group, where they did not cope with Nigeria (4: 5), drew with Colombia (2: 2) and won the only victory in a duel with Sweden (1: 0).
In the last test matches, representatives of the Land of the Rising Sun managed to beat Argentina, Ghana and Jamaica. A serious loss can be considered the absence of Takumi Minamino, who was not allowed to participate in this tournament by the leadership of Liverpool. The oldest player in the team will be the captain, 32-year-old Maya Yoshida.
The South African national team played at the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro for the first time after a long break. In Brazil, South Africa has never won, moreover, the African squad has scored only one goal. In addition to the defeat against Denmark (0: 1), today’s nominal guests drew twice – with Brazil (0: 0) and Iraq (1: 1), which brought the last line.
The team includes representatives of the South African championship, Guimaraes striker Lyle Foster and representative of the Ukrainian Premier League Tersayu Malepe from Minaya.
Exact score 2: 1 winlineru

In this game, the hosts will be the clear favorite. In our opinion, Japan will be able to win at the expense of a home stadium and better performers. We assume that South Africa will resist, but is unlikely to be able to resist such a powerful adversary.
Our forecast is an Asian handicap (-2) for Japan and we bet on this on the line of BC Winline with a coefficient of 2.26
Bet: handicap (-2) on Japan
Opponents will not close defensively. We believe that both teams will look for happiness at the front gate and will delight with scoring chances and successful implementation.
