Favourites Japan will be looking to get their Asian Cup campaign off to a winning start when they face Vietnam this weekend. They go into the match on the back of 10 straight wins where they have averaged 4.6 goals per game, conceded just six and kept five clean sheets and all the odds point to them making it 11 on Sunday. The four-time winners and most successful side in the competition’s history finished as runners-up in 2019 and will be hoping to get revenge this time around after losing to Qatar 3-1 in the final.
