Japan beat host Bulgaria in the first match 3-1 and in the second match they lost to USA 1-3. Yuki Ishii is Japan most dangerous player, she has scored 19 against Bulgaria and 23 points against USA. Belgium yesterday had tough match against Bulgaria, they came back from 2-0 deficit and came up with the victory 3-2. Belgium had started Nation League campaign with a defeat 3-0 to USA, and they lost second set 8:25. The main player for Belgium is Briit Herbots, yesterday she had very strong night finishing with at least three points from spikes (17), blocks (3) and serves (3).
H2H Japan is leading 3-0. In two of those matches Japan was able to cover this point spread. Last meeting between these teams was last year, Japan won that match in straight sets, and cover -9,5 points spread with ease. Today I expect, Japan would be more freshier team than Belgium, because, Japan played their match earlier, and Belgium had tough one match late last night against Bulgaria, also Japan is more balanced and better team all around. Good Luck.
