Japan host Australia in a FIFA World Cup qualifier in Saitama on Tuesay evening.

The Blue Samurai have not lost to Australia in over a decade, while the Socceroos come to Japan in top form. 

Japan are in desperate need of some points in Group B. The Blue Samurai suffered a shock 1-0 loss at home to Oman, before recovering with a 1-0 win over China. But this was merely a temporary fix, as Japan suffered their second loss of the campaign when they went down 1-0 to Saudi Arabia in Jeddah last Thursday. 

The Japanese are currently ranked third in the group with three points. 

Australia have won their last 11 matches and sit top of the group with a maximum nine points from three matches. A 3-0 win over China got the Socceroos off to a good start, before following up with a 1-0 win over Vietnam. 

Australia then recorded their third Group Stage win when they defeated Oman 3-1 in Doha last Thursday. Awer Mabil, Martin Boyle and Mitchell Duke all scored for the Socceroos.

Verdict

Japan have a solid home record, while Australia come to the Saitama Stadium in form. So we are backing this match to result in a draw.
