Saudi Arabia Iraq betting prediction


Preview
Saudi Arabia and Iraq meet , in a match for this stage of the WC Qualification Asia (3rd Round). The head‑to‑head history of the last 3 years favours the home team, since in the last 3 matches they won 3. Iraq registers significant differences between home and away results, so special attention is due to the home/away factor.

Analysis of Saudi Arabia

After 10 wins, 3 draws and 1 loss, the home team is currently in the 1st position, with 13 points won. In the last match, they have won (0‑3) in an away match against Thailand, after in the previous round they have lost (2‑1) in an away match against Japan. This is a team that usually maintains its competitive levels in home and away matches, since in the last 30 matches they register 7 wins, 4 draws and 4 losses in away matches; against 10 wins, 2 draws and 3 losses at their stadium. In the last 7 WC Qualification Asia home matches Saudi Arabia has a record of 6 wins and 1 draw.

They haven’t lost any of the last 7 home matches for this competition. Their offense has scored frequently, since they have scored goals in 9 of the last 10 matches for this competition. There is a tendency for goals in their home matches, since 7 of the last 10 have ended with Over 2,5 goals. They have conceded the first goal in 4 of their 14 matches for this competition, but have been able to turn the score around in 3.

Saudi Arabia is in this game after a 0-3 victory against Thailand, returning to its triumphs after the draw against Japan: the goals were signed by Mohammad Al Sahlawi, Al Moasher and Kesarat (self-goal). In this game in front of the fans it is anticipated that the coach Bert van Marwijk plays in the usual 4-2-3-1 privileging the possession and paused attacks. In addition, it will be apparent that Saudi Arabia uses the corridors to create danger to the enemy: Mohammad Al Sahlawi is a very fast and competent player in the finalization. For this game the home coach should risk his best squad.

Confirmed Lineup: Yasser Al Mosailem, Mansour Al Harbi, Osama Hawsawi, Omar Hawsawi, Yasir Al Shahrani, Salman Al Faraj, Nawaf Al Abid, Taisir Al Jassim, Abdulmalek Al Khaibri, Yehya Al Shehri, Mohammad Al Sahlawi.

Analysis of Iraq

The away team is currently in the 5th position, with 4 points won, after 4 wins, 4 draws and 4 losses. In the penultimate round, they have lost an away match against UAE by (2‑0). In the last round, they have tied a home match against Australia by (1‑1). This is a team that usually makes good use of the home advantage, stronger with the help of its supporters, since in the last 30 matches they register 4 wins, 3 draws and 8 losses in away matches, with 13 goals scored and 24 conceded; against 6 wins, 4 draws and 5 losses at their stadium, with 23 goals scored and 15 conceded. In the last 6 WC Qualification Asia away matches Iraq has a record of 1 win, 2 draws and 3 losses.

In this competition, they haven’t won any of the last 6 matches. Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 7 of the last 10 matches, but their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 8 of the last 10 matches for this competition. In 12 matches for this competition, they have conceded the first goal 6 times and have never been able to turn the score around.

Iraq comes to this match, after a draw against Australia, adding the second consecutive game without winning in these qualifiers for the 2018 World Cup in Russia: the only goal of the team was made by Ahmed Yasin. In this game against the first place of Group B, Radhi Shenaishil should opt for a more cautious strategy, benefiting the organization of his block, as the opponent has individual and collective quality. Left-Wing Adnan is the most dangerous player in this lineup, being the owner of a great speed and vision of the game. It seems that the Iraqi national team has no great absences to register.

Confirmed Lineup: Mohammed Hameed, Alaa Ali Mhawi, Dhurgham Ismail, Ahmad Ibrahim Al-Qafaje, Rebin Sulaka Adhamat, Ali Adnan, Amjad Attwan, Ahmed Yasin, Hammadi Ahmad, Mohannad Abdulraheem.

Betting suggestion:

The bet we recommend for this game is the triumph of Saudi Arabia. In this match we believe that Saudi Arabia dominates part of the game and holds the best chances of goal, since they play before their public and enjoy players far superior to the opponent. On the other hand, Iraq must act in a low block, trying to attack only in the counterattacks. Having said this and taking into account this difference between the teams, putting a bet in favor of the triumph of Saudi Arabia in this match is an excellent option.
