JPN-W vs USA-W Dream11 : Hosts Japan come up against another arduous test when they take on USA today
For the home side, the 2019 edition of the FIVB Women’s Volleyball World Cup has not transpired in the least as the side would have liked. Having fallen to three defeats in five matches, the side find themselves languishing in 9th place, chasing a spot in the next round which looks to be edging away from them as the days transpire in the exhibition tournamnet.
The previous defeat before a break of three days in the tournamnet would have especially hurt Japan who were blown apart by China in a lopsided clash. Not only did they fail to register a single set win but were cleaned out in all three of them, outshone in both the facets of the game as they went onto lose 10-25 in the second set, putting up a horrific performance to slump in the points tally.
With the tournamnet back after its first hiatus, so are the hosts with aspirations of putting on a more improved display, one filled with fortitude. Whilst the side are set to have worked ardently to rectify their mistakes, today’s match looks set to leave them in angst with the side clashing heads against USA, one of the only two sides to be yet beaten in the tournamnet.
Winning their previous match against Brazil as the sent down the marker after a competitive and feisty opening set, USA managed to stay up with China who currently sit in first place. Looking to continue to challenge for their spot, USA should be ruthless in their attacking play, a rhetoric which looks set to condemn Japan to another defeat today.

JPN-W vs USA-W Match Prediction
What would have especially dejected Japan in their last match is the way their hitters collapsed and fell apart. While the side was never the most astute defensively, the way they failed to performance in attack as well was a flabbergasting set of events, a predicament USA will thrive on today.
USA win this one with relative ease and leave Japan languishing in the league standings.

JPN-W vs USA-W Dream11 Libero
With the liberos not giving massive points in the tournamnet, we are going in with Japan’s Mako Kobata for this encounter in a bid to open up spaces for players from USA in other pivotal positions. Also, she’s bound to be hardly substituted and with her playing the entirety of the match, the likelihood of her providing some good defensive bits of volleyball increase.
JPN-W vs USA-W Dream11 Setter
Our setter comes in from Japan as well with us choosing Miya Sato for this clash. She’s endured a horrid outing in the last two matches but the side will be banking on her once again today to set the ball for their attackers, and lay them up in their zone to send down menacingly into USA’s side of the court.
JPN-W vs USA-W Dream11 Blocker
After having managed to scramble together just 10 attacking point against China in the second set and 17 apiece in the first and third, Japan look unlikely to cause USA massive problems today. This sees us bring in USA’s Haleigh Washinton into this segment of our side with the middle blocker set to position herself articulately and curtail Japan’s fathomed shots her side’s way.
JPN-W vs USA-W Dream11 Attackers
The real gold quarry of points, USA’s Kelsey Robinson and Jordan Larson look set to amass a bagful of points given how Japan have agonisingly dwindled recently in their defensive setup. With 53 and 40 spike points respectively, Robinson and Jordan Larson have gotten a good haul of points, ones they look set to massively add to come today’s match.
JPN-W vs USA-W Dream11 Universal
Her 37 spike along with a slew of digs and stuff blocks to go with it, see us make Andrea Drews our universal for this encounter. She will be present in both the sides of her team’s play, a script which will see her get a hoard of points today and could easily see her become the highest scorer for this match.
