The JPN vs UZK match preview –

The final group game of the AFC Asian Cup 2019 will see being played between Japan and Uzbekistan on Thursday. Japan are one of the favourites to clinch the title this year. They are one of the best sides to play out of Asia and have proven how strong their bench strength is as well. In fact, the team made important changes to the way they play to help out the defence as well. This ability to adapt to situations make them a difficult side to get past.

Meanwhile, Uzbekistan are also playing football at a high level. The team has won both of their first two games, and if they are looking to get a favourable matchup in the knockout phase, the nation needs to win this particular game. The side is scoring goals for fun, but this upcoming fixture will be the ideal litmus test for the side that will determine if they can actually stand with the big boys.
