A win today against Morocco would likely put Japan into the next round of the Olympic soccer competition.After paying out a monster 9.00+ payout in their opening match when they defeated the mighty Spaniards 1-0, Japan will have the full sing of momentum in their favour when they take on Morocco today at St. James Park at 12pm EST.
Japan is sitting atop of Group D after matchday 1 with 3 points and the pressure will be off as they attempt to solidify a spot into the quarter-final stage. The 1-0 victory was easily the biggest upset so far in Olympic soccer – mens or womens – and Takashi Sekizuka’s men are paying out 1.83 to get the key three points and appears to be a solid bet to take.
The draw offering is sitting at Ladbrokes.com at 3.40.
Morocco played to an entertaining 2-2 draw with CONCACAF surprise Honduras in a chippy game that produced a few cards. One of those was a red to key defender Zakarya Bergdich who will have to wait until matchday three to play. The RC Lens player in Ligue 2 is a key part of this U23 squad and their 3-5-2 formation will now likely change against the tenacious Japanese squad.
A Morocco victory would pay out a handsome 4.50 to pull off the upset.
