Our first Sunday match will be Japan v Argentina on the 8th of October. This Pool D game will kick off at 12 p.m. IST at the Stade de la Beaujoire in France.

The match officials in charge of keeping the game flowing will be Ben O'Keeffe from New Zealand, with Paul Williams and James Doleman featuring on the touchlines. Brendan Pickerill will be the one locked in the bunker as the TMO.

Japan have played Argentina six times in the past, having won once and lost five times. In their last clash, things went poorly for the Brave Blossoms on home turf when the South Americans put them to the sword, 20-54. Have the Japanese developed enough in the seven years since the last head-to-head to put a dent in the Argentinian defence? Read on for my full analysis in this Japan v Argentina prediction.

🔍 Japan v Argentina Winner Prediction

Both teams have a shot at winning this game and qualifying for the next stage of the competition. Which one will pip the other to the post?

The two teams are close in the world rankings, with Japan in 13th and Argentina in 10th, and both have had two wins in the Rugby World Cup so far. Japan clobbered Chile in their first game, 42-12 and cruised past Samoa in their third, 28-22, whilst falling short to England in their second match, 34-12. Meanwhile, Argentina also lost to England in round one before rising like phoenixes and conquering Samoa in game two, 19-10 and Chile in their third game, 59-5. Out of the two sides, one could argue that Argentina have had the better run of things, a +46 points difference edging the Japan's +10.

There is lots for which to play in this last week, and we all need to understand that this is going to be a very close encounter for two sides that both need the win. For me, there will only be one winner, and I am giving Argentina my backing by 10 points. I believe their greater experience at playing the world's best teams will be all the difference needed to secure group points when it matters.

✔️ Japan v Argentina Betting Tips

1️⃣ Match Winner: Argentina to Win

I am confident in my prediction that the South Americans will wrap up this game in style, but would I have a flutter on Argentina to win at 1.20 at Betway? Not this time.

2️⃣ Handicap Winner: Japan to Win (+11.5)

With my prediction of an Argentinian win by 10 points, I would say that your best handicap bet would be Japan to win (+11.5) at 2.20 at Betway. With a return of double money, I think that is an attractive value. Having said that, though, this will be a close game, and a loss of 12 points or more for the Japanese will ruin your bet; therefore be sensible about what you bet. Always gamble responsibly!
