Tokyo Olympics Men’s soccer: France vs Japan prediction

Japan Under-23s will face France Under-23s on Wednesday and will look to finish the group stage on a high note. The team had a flawless start to their home Olympics tournament. At the Nissan Stadium in Yokohama, the game will begin at 12.30 p.m. BST and will conclude all group games in men’s football at the summer Olympics. Here is everything you need to know about France vs Japan football prediction for the Tokyo Olympics Men’s football games.

Team news


The majority of the French team remained same in the first two games, with only two of the attacking midfield three – Enzo Le Fee and Arnaud Nordin – and Sagnan at center-back losing their starting spots the previous time out.

Following a hat-trick against South Africa and opening goal against Mexico, France striker Gignac is currently leading the goalscoring chart at the Tokyo Olympics

Ripoll’s trusted pair in the center of midfield are Savanier and Lucas Tousart, and they are expected to start against Japan, though Tousart is likely to be substituted.


Koji Miyoshi was replaced by Yuki Soma. This was only one change in Japan’s starting lineup from the first game against South Africa to the second game against Mexico.

Japan’s back four of Yuta Nakayama, Ko Itakura, Maya Yoshida, and Hiroki Sakai are forging a strong foundation for the host nation, and they will resume training on Wednesday to prepare for the knockout stages. 

France vs Japan Prediction

Japan’s home tournament has gone off without a hitch, with the team earning maximum points in their first two games against South Africa and Mexico.

Real Madrid’s Takefusa Kubo scored in the 71st minute to give them three points in a game that the hosts dominated in terms of chances created.

France’s games at the Tokyo Olympics have been full of goals, with four conceded against Mexico in the first round and three points secured last time out in a seven-goal thriller against South Africa. France will have to overcome a four-goal deficit in order to leapfrog their hosts. 

As a result, France is likely to attack the game from the start and pick up three points on Wednesday, but Japan is unlikely to let France catch them on goal difference.


France Under-23s possible starting lineup:

Bernardoni; Caci, Nkounkou, Kalulu, Michelin; Tousart, Savanier; Mbuku, Muani, Thauvin; Gignac

Japan Under-23s possible starting lineup:

Tani; Nakayama, Itakura, Yoshida, Sakai; Endo, Tanaka; Soma, Kubo, Doan; Hayashi

Our Prediction: France Under-23s 2-1 Japan Under-23s
