The match will be played this Thursday from 06:00 at the Domo Stadium located in the city of Sapporo.

In the previous antecedents, the Albirroja is down against Japan, since they faced each other 10 times and the Japanese won 4 games against 2 of the Paraguayans, also 4 draws were recorded.

The history records only 2 official matches between Paraguay and Japan. The first of them was played in Asunción, during the Copa América disputed in 1999 and the Albirroja won, 4-0, with goals from Miguel Benítez and Roque Santa Cruz, both on 2 occasions.

The second official confrontation was in the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, in the round of 16, when it ended tied without opening the score, achieving the Albirroja, in the penalty shootout (5-3), the historic first classification to the quarterfinals end of an ecumenical competition.
