Prediction & Tip
Colombia have already qualified for the Round of 16, and have looked the best team of Group C. Japan have disappointed, and in theory are still a mathematical chance to progress should Greece defeat Ivory Coast in their game. We’re expecting an improved performance from the Japanese, and will take the 5/2 that Ladbrokes are offering for a draw.
