Syria vs Qatar: Preview and Predictions
Must win match for both Syria and Qatar as they battle to sneak inside the qualification spots.
Syria are fourth in the table with 9 points and they have a chance to finish second by winning the remaining two games. However, this can happen only if Korea and Uzbekistan pick just 1 point from their remaining games.
For Qatar, the situation is more complex as they sit at fifth with 7 points, which is 5 less than the Uzbekistan on third. They must win here, but could be eliminated if the Uzbeks grab three points at China.
The Qasioun Eagles have so far managed 2 wins from their 8 matches so far and are devoid of any level of consistency. Scoring goals has been the pick of the problems and haven’t netted in 5 of the 8 games.
The team is forced to play their home games in Malaysia and has been decent with a win and 3 draws from 4 games so far. However, they need much more than a decent performance on matchday 9.
Just like Syria, Qatar has struggled for consistency through the campaign. They have won 2, both coming at home. Also, they grabbed a morale boosting 3-2 win against Korea last term, which helped their qualification hopes alive.
The Maroons are win-less on the road, lost 3 and drew 1 so far. They also failed to score in three games during the period.
Syria vs Qatar: Head-to-head
The reverse leg of the corresponding fixture was a 1-0 win for Qatar, the winner coming through a first half penalty.
Also, Qatar are unbeaten in their last five games against Syria with 3 wins and 2 draw.
Syria vs Qatar: Predictions
The teams have struggled for goals in the tournament with the core of the problem lying in creating chances during open play. The three points are at stake and there is a chance that they change the mode of operation here.
However, this will be a close affair and the full-time result could eitherways.
