Paraguay vs Japan match prediction

Interesting game ahead which appears an evenly matched contest on the surface and that means Japan are very much over the odds when you take everything into consideration.

The Japanese form is comparable if not better than Paraguays and this game has all the makings of a draw which may require extra time to decide a winner.

As good as Japan has been, we fancy the South American team to get the nod as that continent has performed exceptionally well in the World Cup, and rather than back Paraguay for the win we are going to have a crack at them to qualify for the quarter finals.
