Afghanistan vs Oman
World Cup Qualifier
Date: Friday, 11 June 2021
Kick-off 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Jassim Bin Hamad Stadium (Doha).
Oman will be desperate for three points when they meet Afghanistan on Friday, having lost 0-1 to Qatar in the previous game.
The Reds have to settle for the second place in Group E, yet have a high chance of qualifying to next round by finishing as one of the best second placed teams.
They have 12 points and a win here and then in the next against Bangladesh will give them 18 points, which is more than enough to place them on top of the runners-up table.
Oman have won 4 of their 6 games so far, and both the defeats came against Qatar.
Afghanistan have 2 games in hand, but 5 points and they are still hopeful to finish 3rd above India and grab the automatic group stage ticket to Asian Cup qualifiers.
They only won once in the campaign and that was against Bangladesh on matchday 2, since they drew both Bangladesh and India while losing twice to Qatar and the reverse to Oman.

Afghanistan vs Oman Prediction
The Reds from Oman are too strong for Afghanistan and we are expecting another convincing victory for Branko Ivankovic’s men.
Truth to be told, they were unlucky against Qatar, denied a clear penalty and a goal for offside. Win there will not make any difference to the final standings, but impressive is the number of chances they created in the match.
Everything indicates a tough day for the men from Afghanistan at the Jassim Bin Hamad Stadium.
