Match preview 🏆 

Japan mustered just five shots, three of which were on target against Argentina. The former World Cup winners failed to break down a compact approach from the South Americans and that must be a concern coming into this game. Scotland's confidence will be higher after a spirited showing against England. 

Six of Japan's last eight matches saw both teams score and that looks like a good bet all things considered.

Players to watch 🌟

Neither side has any injury concerns after matchday one although Asako Takakura will want more from his players, especially in the final third after a lacklustre display of finishing last time out. Scotland and Arsenal star Kim Little scored in each of their last three qualifiers; twice before the ten-minute mark.
