UAE V SYRIA
UAE, buoyed by their previous result, will be hoping for more of the same after a 0-1 WC Qualifiers - Asia success vs Lebanon.
UAE have struggled with their forward play in more recent games. Their ‘goals for’ figure stands at just 4 against opposing sides during their previous six outings. In those games, UAE have also seen the number of goals that have gone against them total 5.
Following on from a losing effort in their last game against Iran in WC Qualifiers - Asia action,
Syria will be aiming to make amends here.
The numbers tell their own story, and Syria have been scored against in 6 of their last 6 games, seeing opposing sides hit 11 goals in all. Defensively, Syria have not been doing too well. With no two games being the same, we must now wait to see whether the trend might persist in this next match.
Prediction: Both teams to score
SAUDI ARABIA V OMAN
Saudi Arabia fans will want a repeat of their previous result, being the 0-1 WC Qualifiers - Asia success versus Vietnam.
Their latest results really do illustrate the point that there has been much resilience in the Saudi Arabia backline. Saudi Arabia have been mean at the back, seeing the total number of goals that have gone past their goalkeeper over the course of their previous 6 outings standing at 3. Such a trend might not follow through here, however.
Since suffering a loss in their previous game against Japan in WC Qualifiers - Asia competition, Oman and their travelling fans will hope for a better result here.
The stats tell the story, and Oman have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 games, letting opponents get 7 goals in total. At the back, Oman can certainly do much better.
Prediction: Over 2.5 Goals
