Colombia – Japan FREE PICKS
First match of Group H, probably the most open group in the world. They face the selection of Colombia with that of Japan. We go with the bet that Colombia will win and we apply a handicap -1, which would give us zero any victory for the minimum of Colombia and we would get the green if the difference of goals is more than one goal.
Any other result that is not a victory for Colombia against Japan can be considered a surprise. The Japanese team was classified devastating in their group. However that was not enough for the Japanese federation and decided to give a change of course with the dismissal of Halilhodzic. His replacement on the bench was Akira Nishino.
It is assumed that with the change of coach Japan will play happier, more offensive, more like the Japanese who play their national team. In addition the idols of the fans will return to the starting lineup and will not see the game from the bench, as they used to with the previous coach. However, the preparation time has been minimal and the selection does not seem as worked as it should be before the imminent world. Japan is a mystery and what is seen in recent friendlies does not invite optimism. Also, there is not as much talent as other years.
For its part Colombia is already a regular of the world and the hand of James Rodriguez will try not only to win, but also to convince in their first game. In addition Falcao seems to be in a second youth and will pose a serious danger against Japan, who are not, precisely, specialists in the air game. Any set piece will be a real drama for the Japanese.
