2012 Olympics Medal Predictions: Japan vs. Egypt Tips & Picks 8/4/12

Olympics Men’s Soccer Japan vs. Egypt: Back Africans To Knock Out Japan: Japan and Egypt are both hoping to get to the semifinals of the men’s Olympics tournament, and one will be able to do just that. It could be quite the competitive match to start off a four-pack of games on the pitches of Great Britain, so you don’t want to miss our Japan vs. Egypt live picks and predictions.

Japan was the team that really started all of the upsets here in the Olympics. The team shocked Spain 1-0 in the opening match in Group D, and that started a chain of events that ended up knocking out the Spanish before the final group matches took place. Of course, we know that that victory ended up looking a bit shockingly iffy in the end in Group D, but getting through that group was quite the accomplishment. Meanwhile, Egypt most certainly had its struggles. No team really had all that much of a shot against Brazil, but a decisive victory against Belarus was the one that put the team in the quarterfinals.

The Japanese haven’t done a whole heck of a lot offensively, scoring just two goals in the first three matches of the tournament. That being said, they have done a great job defensively, making for one of the two teams that haven’t allowed a single ball to get in the back of their own net. Japan also has just one yellow card against it over the course of the tourney to date, and that discipline is really proving to be a great thing for this team. The organization has been remarkable on both sides of the pitch, and that has frustrated the heck out of the other teams in this tournament. Yuki Otsu and Kensuke Nagai have the two goals for the Japanese in the Olympics to date, and it is likely going to take at least one more strike to be able to get into the semifinals.

It’s definitely going to be tough to see how the Egyptians are going to get into the semifinals if they play like they did in their first two matches. They were down 3-0 against Brazil before coming back and scoring two goals in the second half of what was still a relatively lopsided match. A game later, a draw against New Zealand really just wasn’t good enough. But again, when the marbles were really on the line, after getting just one point in its first two matches, Egypt did the job, coming out and scoring three times in the second half against Belarus to clinch a spot in the second round. Mohamed Salah already has three goals in the Olympics to date, and he is just one goal off the lead for the Golden Boot. Mohamed Aboutrika has a pair of goals as well, and that makes this nation the only one in the tournament that has one goal scorer with at least three goals and one with at least two. The six goals scored rank second in the Olympics thus far, but the problem is that there are five goals that have been allowed, which is tied for the third worst mark.

Japan vs. Egypt Match Preview & Analysis: This is going to be a wide open match that could go either way, and if that’s the case, we want the half ball on our side. Japan might be the more organized of the two teams, and it might very well get into the semifinals after extra time, but we’ll still take our chances that the Egyptians end up at least forcing this one into the final half hour, if not taking this clash outright in 90 minutes.
