Oman – Kazakhstan Match Prediction | 14-09-2019 02:00

They open the Asian Cup against Oman looking to turn the new page with the new year, after seeing their three-game unbeaten streak ended by Korea Republic in November. Uzbekistan have come oh-so-close to secure the 4th Round in World Cup Qualifiers in late 2017 but have fallen short despite a solid finish and weve seen them struggling to impress since then.

They continued to be very tough to break down in recent friendlies as the team shipped just one goal in past four tests against Lebanon, Jordan, Philippines and Ecuador. Pim Verbeeks men topped their respective Asian Cup Qualification group together with Palestine after winning five of six games (the opposition also included the likes of Maldives and Bhutan though).

Doan has been impressing in the Eredivisie and got the all important third goal for Japan in the seventy-first minute, but Ataew set up a nervy final ten minutes when he pulled a goal back from the penalty spot. Amanow handed the underdogs the lead in the twenty-sixth minute with a goal that separated the two teams at half time. Japan had to improve in the second forty-five and they did just that, levelling the scores in the fifty-sixth minute through sako and then taking the lead four minutes later thanks to another sako strike. Japan and Turkmenistan produced a surprising five-goal thriller in their first group game, with the favourites eventually running out 3-2 winners. Japan held on to secure a deserved win after having 69% of the possession and sixteen shots during the ninety minutes, but their defending must improve if they are to go far in this competition.

Georgia Team News, Updates and Facts

An away win on this trip to Cyprus at odds of 5/2 withUnibet will give them a real chance of qualifying. After a thumping 3-0 win over Scotland in their opening game, perhaps one of the most impressive results in the nations history, the Hawks then slipped to disappointing defeats at home to Russia and away to Belgium before returning to winning form by thumping minnows San Marino in front of their own supporters last time out.

Experienced defenders Yuto Nagatomo and Maya Yoshida played the entire ninety minutes, but Japan missed the quality of Shinji Kagawa in midfield and the tenacity of striker Shinji Okazaki who weren't selected in the 23-man squad. Japan are likely to start the same eleven players that saw them to victory over Turkmenistan, with two goal hero sako set to lead the line once again.

For now though, the Iranians look strong; theyve created plenty going forward, have shown good end-product, while theyve made nullifying their opponents look easy. Iran were expected to go deep into this tournament before the off and theyve since made it this far without breaking sweat, things are looking good. Though its tough to know how good they are at present, simply because theyre yet to be tested. That fact alone is positive, though it will be interesting to see how they fare if they do come up against another of the fancied sides such as Japan or South Korea.

We dont expect an easy task and we dont feel were in for many goals on the day either. Hector Cuper enjoys a tough defensive setup and with that in mind, we feel just one goal could put this one out of reach as we stick our necks out for Under 1.5 goals FT at an eye-catching 2.43 odd.

In the past year, Georgia have seven wins, a draw, and a loss in what has been quite the year for them. They have not lost since their 0-2 defeat at home to Georgia, but three of the four matches ended in draws, showing why they are so far behind Georgia in the table. As for Kazakhstan, they have not had quite as good of a year. In all of their wins, they have kept clean sheets, showing an ability to play sound defensively while also finding more than two goals in five of those wins. They have three wins, three draws, and two losses for a good but not great year of play.

England Conference South Tips

Having done well to avoid relegation from what was a tough Division Three Nations League group,Ran Ben Shimons men started this qualifying period with a thumping win over San Marino and although that has been followed up by a trio of consecutive defeats, theyve done well to keep things tight and lose by just one goal against both Scotland and Russia. Can they now earn another three points at odds of 6/5 withPaddyPower?
