Analysis and forecast of the Germany – Japan match (09/09/2023)
Euro 2024 will be held in Germany, so the host country does not participate in qualifying matches for the right to compete in the tournament. However, the team will not sit idly during this time either, so it will hold friendly matches. In one of them, Germany will host Japan on September 9 at the Volkswagen Arena. The game starts no earlier than 21:45 Moscow time.

The Germans have long been unable to please their fans with victories in major tournaments. The last time a “German car” became world champion was in 2014 in Brazil, and in 1996 it won the European Championship. This time the Águilas will play the Euro Cup at home, where the environment and the local fans must help them.
In the last World Cup, Germany was unable to leave the group that included Japan, as well as Costa Rica and Spain. It seemed that such opponents could be overcome, but things did not go well for the team. He scored four points, losing second place to Red Fury in terms of additional indicators.
Hans-Dieter Flick continues to lead the national team and will try to progress. But sources say test matches in September will decide the German coach’s fate. If the results are not successful, he will lose his place in the national team. In addition to the Japanese, the Germans will have to play with France.
Flick has a lot of talented footballers, but it won’t be possible to get them all to the training ground. The coach approached the September matches carefully, carefully selecting his squad. The coach did not call Leon Goretzka or Timo Werner, saying that they were not in the best shape. And Jamal Musiala suffers from back pain.
Qualifying for Euro 2024 will not be easy:

Niklas Füllkrug was injured and would not be able to help the national team, so Hans-Dieter replaced him with Thomas Müller, who initially did not receive an invitation to the national team. Ter Stegen will take his place in goal. He promised that he would prove that he was now number one and that he would do everything possible to remain number one. Leroy Zane, Kai Havertz and Ilkay Gundogan were also called up.
Japan cannot boast such a wealth of talent and their greatest achievement at the World Championship remains the round of 16. The “samurai” of Qatar reached precisely this phase, winning the group in which Germany was. In the head-to-head duel with the Germans, the Japanese won 2-1. Apparently, such an opponent in friendly matches was not chosen by chance.
Japan has a very well-combined team and stable results, but often the team cannot compete with Europe’s star teams. Hajime Moriyasu has directed it for almost five years. In 2023, the samurai played four control matches, losing to Colombia (1-2), drawing with Uruguay (1-1) and earning two victories in the June matches. The Japanese managed to defeat El Salvador 6-0 and Peru 4-0.
Moriyasu also has talented players in his squad. For example, Ayase Ueda, who plays for Feyenoord. Sporting midfielder Hidemasa Morita is in good shape. Kyogo Furuhashi scored 27 goals for Celtic last season. In the current Scottish Championship, in four games he has already scored three goals and one assist.
Despite the majority’s discontent with Flick’s work, he also has followers. Former Bayern and Inter player Lothar Matthäus defended the German coach and said that he must be trusted. Sensing an imminent threat, the coach will have to find a way to improve the team’s performance, and victory over Japan must be the only goal.
Spertsyan is looking forward to Euro 2024:
Eduard Spertsyan and Nair Tiknizyan will do everything for the team. But won’t there be any at Euro 2024?
Unfortunately, Hans-Dieter has very few advantages. Important players left the squad, some were unhappy for not having been called up, others were happy to have the opportunity to prove their worth and establish themselves in the team. In the June friendlies, the Germans did not win even once. They tied with Ukraine (3-3) and then lost 0-3 against Poland and Colombia. We offer a bet that the Japanese will not lose at 2.25. The Eagles really need a different coach.
Prediction and bets for the match Germany – Japan September 9, 2023
Perhaps the option of changing coaching staff is not so bad for the German team. Flick is clearly aware of these rumors and feels threatened. However, even in the summer he did not show anything remarkable in matches with inferior rivals. Japan already defeated the Germans in the 2022 World Cup and in better conditions. We believe that the “samurai” are capable of not losing again, but not because they are stronger, but because Flick can’t cope.
Tender: Japan will not lose in 2.25.
