JPN-W vs ARG-W Dream11 : Upbeat Japan make final late surge for a spot in the top 4 of the league standings
A FIVB Volleyball Women’s World Cup filled with uncertainty for the home side gets ready to transpire through its final stages with Japan looking to make one last bid for a spot in the ensuing round of the prestigious tournamnet. Where they have showed ample signs of impressive volleyball, a failure to string together consistent results has lead to the side’s failure of imbedding a place in the echelons of the point tally, something they are looking to right ahead of today’s upcoming encounter.
Looking to make amends for their previous results, Japan got off on the right footing yesterday as they showed the requisite composure to push through and scamper through to a 3-2 win against Serbia yesterday. In what was a stunning attacking display by them, the side managed to persevere in an edge of the seat thriller, showing reslliance at crucial junctures to take the deciding set 15-6 in a topsy-turvy encounter which switched hands across its life.
Where Japan managed to keep a flicker of chance alive, albeit a bleak one only to make it to the top 4, Argentina elsewhere all well out of the running for a spot in the pivotal positions. It’s been a horrendous world cup for them, one where the side have been left dismayed but having no one but themselves to blame for their regressive performances.
Their previous 3-0 defeat to Dominican Republic perfectly epitomised why the side have suffered so much this edition of the tournamnet, a result which saw them fall to their 7th defeat in 9 matches to sit in the trenches of the points tally in 11th place.

JPN-W vs ARG-W Match Prediction
Japan have defeated Argentina in all of the four previous meetings the two have contested previously and they should manage to keep that glistening record speckle free today as well. Their attack clicked to perfection yesterday and up against a dwindling defence, the Japanese should find it easy to pile on the points and win this one.

JPN-W vs ARG-W Dream11 Libero
Japan’s Mako Kobata is brought into our side in the libero position. In a match where both the sides have had to suffer owing to their faltering and agonising defensive setups, Japan offer the better option with Kobata having put on some resolute performances recently, ones where her knowhow of the game have come to the fore to put in some good returns and picks.
JPN-W vs ARG-W Dream11 Setter
Argentina’s setter, Victoria Mayer is chosen by us in this facet with the setter having registered 181 running sets and 641 still sets, a figure which shows that she’s capable of aligning the ball in the perfect zone for her hitters. Not only that, she’ll be called on ample occasions to receive the ball from serves as well and lay it up perfectly for her attackers, something she’s capable of doing.
JPN-W vs ARG-W Dream11 Blocker
Sticking to our aforementioned rhetoric of the defence not impressing massively across the length of the tournamnet for either side, this match shouldn’t reverberate the most astute brand of defensive volleyball either. Both the sides will struggle to pull off blocks, seeing us going in with Argentina’s Bianco Farriol in a bid to open up option from Japan in the attacking segments.
With 18 stuff blocks, the middle blocker has been her side’s best blocker at the tournamnet and will hold a pivotal role today, one where she’ll need to thwart a slew of Japan attacks directed her way if her side are to win this one.
JPN-W vs ARG-W Dream11 Attackers
In comes the contingent from Japan, a partnership which was vindictive of the skill set prevelant in the side yesterday. Both Mayu Ishikawan and Yuki Ishii carved out the performance the side had been craving for so long, catering to the side’s attacking side of their gameplan as they delivered a daunting performance to dismiss Serbia with disdain.
It’s a showing they look set to emulate come today as well with Yuki Ishii having gotten 131 spikes till now, numbers which are testament to her pulsating capabilities as a hitter while Mayu has 74 on the other hand.
JPN-W vs ARG-W Dream11 Universal
Risa Shinnabe wraps up our Dream 11 side for the day with the universal making for a name who has encapsulated her skill set to maraud her way in both the attacking and defensive gameplan of her side.
