The last match of this weekend will be England v Japan on Sunday, the 17th of September at the Stade de Nice. The first whistle will be at 8 p.m.

Taking charge of this Pool D game will be Nika Amashukeli, assisted by Nic Berry and Andrea Piardi. Taking up the role of TMO will be Joy Neville.

The Red Rose and the Brave Blossoms have battled it out on the rugby pitch only three times in the past, with England unbeaten in all three encounters. Japan will need a solid game plan and a hell of a show of willpower to overcome their opposition, but could this be another of Japan's historic Rugby World Cup moments? Let's get right into the meat of this England v Japan prediction.

🔍 England v Japan Winner Prediction

Both teams have had a bad run of form in their last six games, only managing two wins apiece. If we look solely at their first Rugby World Cup 2023 games, however, there is still not a lot to separate them, as England v Argentina ended in a surprising 27-10 win for the Red Rose, despite having only 14 men on the pitch for the large majority of both halves, and the Brave Blossoms put their opposition to the sword, 42-12, against Chile. The two key factors that I think show England have the upper hand going into this test are that they are eighth in the rugby world rankings compared to Japan in 14th and that England have trumped their counterparts by around 37 points on average in their previous showdowns. As Japan have come a long way over the years, and because the team tend to show up in force to big World Cup matches, I think the end result will only be 20 points different this time around. Nonetheless, I still see this as an England win.

✔️ England v Japan Betting Tips

1️⃣ Match Winner: England to Win

Your best match winner option for my prediction is England to win at 1.06. These are not the shortest odds I have seen for this weekend, but it's still a hard pass from me.

2️⃣ Handicap Winner: Japan to Win (+22)

Provided Japan can stem the bleeding enough to keep the game to 20 points, it would seem that your best option would be Japan to win (+22) at 1.96 at TonyBet Sports. For a return of almost double money, this offer seems tempting to me. Remember that if England go above and beyond in this match and rack up 22 points or more, whatever the potential return would have been won't matter, as you would still end up losing your bet. For that reason, make sure you consider what you are willing to lose if things go south. Gamble responsibly!
