The next round of Asian World Cup qualifiers will take place on Thursday and Nathan Joyes has found three worthwhile bets, starting in Hanoi. ..

« Three points would keep Oman qualifying, while a win for China would give them an outside chance of reaching the next round. It’s a huge game at a crucial stage in the group and me Expect lots of action. « 

Japan’s bumpy start after losing to Oman and Saudi Arabia in the first three games meant that the clash against Australia was effectively six points.

Luck was on their side, however Despite an overall good performance, an own goal in the 85th minute secured the 2-1 victory. Japan now needs to build on that and claim their first victories in a row in this qualifying campaign, but their opponent Vietnam offers the Blue Samurai an almost perfect opportunity.

Vietnam has lost all four games so far and conceded 10 goals in the process. They showed a lot of courage to get almost a point against China, but apart from that performance, Vietnam lacked the quality required at this level.

Apart from that, their opponents haven’t knocked anyone off yet, and even when they lost, was it with a single lead. It may be a close encounter, but Japan is not entirely invincible as it used to be.

It’s also worth noting that half of the Japanese squad missed Tuesday training because their charter flight had to stop in Russia to refuel . Not ideal preparation for them.

Japan is scoringly close at 1/9 and while I think they will win by a goal or two there is one value I cannot ignore.

Can Vietnam score? It wasn’t something I was entertaining until I saw the price of 2/1 and I find it hard to leave it alone. Both their goals against Saudi Arabia and Oman came completely against the course of the game, but two quick counterattacks in the build-up caught my eye.

The home advantage in Asian World Cup qualifiers has often proven to be very good over the years proved important, which is why it is worth mentioning that this game is played in a neutral place behind closed doors. Due to the pandemic, China is playing its « home games » in the United Arab Emirates or Qatar, with this being played in Sharjah.

After a dramatic 3-2 win over Vietnam in the 95th minute, China would have against table leaders Saudi- Arabia almost saved a point and received a 3-2 defeat.

That offers Oman more than hope. So far it has been a mixed campaign for Oman that secured a shock victory against Japan in Suita and last time defeated the whipping boys Vietnam. In between are two defeats against Saudi Arabia and Australia, but with both vastly superior squads, Oman has proven that they can take on the best in Asia.

With three points, Oman would keep their qualifying spot, while a win for China would keep them would give an outside chance of reaching the next stage. It’s a huge game in a crucial phase in the group and I expect a lot of action.

Both nations will be bitterly disappointed with how their qualification campaigns have gone so far. They meet on Thursday evening in Qatar, a neutral place behind closed doors.

Iraq’s inability to find the network has cost them a lot after having one in their first three games against South Korea, Iran and Lebanon Had drawn a gap. It was not until the 74th minute that this changed in the final game against the UAE, where they had to rely on an own goal to start their campaign.

Striker Ayman Hussein seemed to have the winning goal in the 89th minute Dick Advocaat’s side, but that cheer was short-lived as the hosts scored well into stoppage time to save a point.

For opponents Syria, who have so far averaged one goal per game scored it was not an issue to score. At the other end of the field, the main problem that has been conceded in every game so far, including the last time against Lebanon.

A lack of concentration against Lebanon from the defensive line led to backlash among their fans, which even after the defeat against South Korea were very frustrated in the last few minutes thanks to a Heung Min Son winner just five days earlier.

I would recommend fewer than 2.5 goals if it wasn’t so short, mainly because of Iraq’s inability to score To score a goal or to take advantage of the opportunities they have created for themselves. Syria were weak against Lebanon last time, but have often held close matches against much stronger opponents – especially the 1-1 draw with the UAE.

It’s worth noting that in 10 of the last 11 matches between these two Nations two or fewer goals have been scored and four of the last five games have all been leveled.
