Soccer | Poland vs. Japan
Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Japan will be in action against Poland in the final round of games of the 2018 World Cup. This is a game between two sides that have top quality players and as a result, I am expecting a really good game.

Poland were eliminated after their loss to Colombia in  their last game and now they will have only pride to play for. This team has not looked great and after a lot of hopes, this result will be seen as a failure. Finishing strongly will be important for Poland since there are tons of fans that have made a long journey to Russia and a win will be priceless. Lewandowski would also like to improve as they Bayern Munich superstar is yet to score and that is not usually the case.

On the other side of the coin, Japan will know that they will need a big win to secure top spot in the group. The Japanese will also know that a big loss could see them getting eliminated and that will be playing on the back of their minds. This is not the most talented Japanese side but they have shown character all through the tournament and that has given them good results. Poland will be another test for Japan and it will be interesting to see how the game ends.
I am going to predict that Japan and Poland finish this game sharing the points. Neither side seems like they are good enough to win so a draw is a fair result. As far as betting is concerned, we are getting a price on betting on the draw. This seems like great value so it is the wager which I am going to be suggesting for this game.
