Placed 2nd in Group E and 11th in the FIFA rankings, Germany are favourites to win their opening match against Japan.
However, Japan won this this year’s East Asian Football Federation E-1 Championship convincingly: It would be a mistake to disregard them.
In the contest chart for this match, Germany, as favourites, are represented by Venus (Lord 1) and Saturn (Lord 10, victory for the favouriites).
Japan are represented by Mars (Lord of the opposing 7th house) and the Sun (4th house).
There is very little going on in this chart: None of the main significators are aspected by the Moon, which usually provides clues to the result.
Saturn, for Germany, is strongly placed in his own sign. This promises a strong performance from Germany, although Saturn is a little too far from the 10th house cusp to be truly conclusive.
The Moon in the 7th house provides an equally strong testimony for Japan. Again, the Moon is too far from the house cusp to guarantee victory, but nevertheless promises that Japan will prove a good match for the favourites.
Overall, this chart has equal testimonies which are inconclusive. In such cases, it is usual to assume the favourites will win by default. However, it would be unwise to rule Japan out of the contest at this stage. This promises to be one of the more interesting matches of the day.
