Forecast and betting

Japan can be bet on in this match for 1.25. A draw is offered for 6.35 and a South Africa win for 14.75. But African talents are good at surprising people, so we shouldn’t expect any surprises from them this time around, but that does not mean that they will not surprise us!

The Japanese team is better. This is a really good team which might compete even for medals in the Olympic tournament as they are currently winning against Spain.

Match results

The Japanese Olympic team had a minimal victory over the South African national team. The Japanese victory was made by the single goal scored by Real Madrid midfielder Takefusa Kubo midway through the second half.
