Japan v Senegal

Home Win Draw Away Win
Key stats
  • Japan have not kept a clean sheet in their last eight matches
Expert verdict
Senegal were the only African side to post a victory in the first round of matches and can follow it up by defeating Japan in Yekaterinburg. Japan's task against Colombia was made much easier by the early dismissal of Carlos Sanchez but they face a tougher challenge against Senegal, who look genuine contenders to reach the latter stages.
