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

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.

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.

He also has provided one assist, making him a player to keep a watch on. Another to watch is winger Bauyrzhan Islamkhan. Kazakhstan will be hoping that left back Gafurzhan Suyumbayev will keep up his good form in this match after he netted a goal in the draw with Latvia on Thursday at home. He has two assists, the only player in the team with more than one, and they will look to him to help build attacks along with the aforementioned Suyumbayev.

Cyprus vs Kazakhstan Tip

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 finished second in their Nations League group behind a rampant Georgia and theyve made a relatively strong start to this qualifying campaign for the next European Championships. Kazakhstan are in a similar situation to their Friday night opponents having never managed to qualify for a major tournament before but football is improving as a whole in their country and they continue to make progress as an international side.

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?

Unlike Iran, who walked through the groups in second gear, Oman snuck through thanks to a win on match-day three against a very poor Turkmenistan side. Whats more, the way in which Oman were dominated by Japan on match-day two suggests that they will find it tough to contain Iran, who find it easy to put teams under pressure. On that occasion, the Reds looked good; they created plenty of opportunities and scored three goals, though the fact that they conceded against very weak opposition doesnt exactly bode well ahead of a match against a strong Iranian side.

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.

Having sealed their promotion to League C, they will be facing a Kazakhstan side that also have little to play for. Because of that, Georgia should feel confident about breaking that small two game run and getting a victory this time around to please their fans as the group comes to a close. Expert Verdict: Georgia will be in celebratory mood when this match kicks off on Monday night.
