Kazakhstan will win

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

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.

Oman sit bottom of Group F after their opening day defeat against Uzbekistan and now cant afford to lose on Sunday when they face one of the favourites to win the Asian Cup. Japan made hard work of their victory over Turkmenistan and certainly missed some of those more familiar faces that didnt make the 23-man squad for the tournament.

However, while Oman, whore yet to keep a clean sheet at this tournament, havent exactly defended well enough to suggest that they can keep Iran at bay, they have shown several moments of promise going forward. Iran are yet to concede in UAE, but they did concede a few opportunities against Vietnam on the break, so an Oman goal in this fixture is far from beyond the realms of possibility, especially since theyre averaging a pleasing 1.65 expected goals for at this tournament.

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).

Uzbekistan took the lead against Oman in the thirty-fourth minute through Akhmedov, and that goal proved enough to separate the two sides at the half time interval. Both teams would have had this game down as a must not lose knowing they would have to face the favourites Japan in the future, and with five minutes left on the clock, Shomurodov scored the winning goal for Uzbekistan to make them the favourites to claim the second qualifying spot. Oman got themselves back onto level terms in this crucial opening group game in the seventy-second minute when Muhsen Al Ghassani latched onto a pass from Ali Al Busaidi. Krimets was sent-off for the winners in stoppage time, but Uzbekistan held on despite only having 38% of the possession during the ninety minutes and producing just three shots. Oman will be hugely disappointed to lose a game they really should have won after dominating the match and having eight corners and fourteen shots.

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.

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.

More than two goals were scoring in the two previous meetings of these two nations, were backing over 2.5 again here at odds of13/10 withLadbrokes. The bookmakers always fancy low-scoring games between these perceived minnows but were backing goals here. In their opening four games of this qualifying group, Kazakhstan have scored and conceded seven goals and while Cyprus have been rather defensive in those narrow defeats to teams like Russia and Belgium, theyre likely to be more open in a home game they will feel capable of winning.

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?

Were actually backing a share of the spoils at odds of23/10 withWilliam Hill. Its tough to pick a winner between these two. Although for us, Cyprus are the favourites with good reason having enjoyed a better overall record in recent years and having the home advantage, we can see Kazakhstan taking something from this game if they can perform to the same standard set in those wins over Scotland and San Marino.
