India vs Bangladesh Prediction
The hosts picked a point off of table-toppers Qatar in their last trip on the road after both teams failed to find the back of the net by the end of the ninety minutes. Despite their counterparts making twenty-eight attempts at goal in that match, the hosts huffed and puffed to hold their foes to a stalemate.
Bangladesh, on the other hand, are yet to get off the mark on the table, both in terms of points as well as goals. The visiting contingent were handed a 2-0 defeat by Qatar in their last game at home. Prior to which the away side were at the losing end of a 1-0 scorecard against Bangladesh.
It goes without saying that Jamie Day’s men have just not been convincing in any of their recent clashes. Both offensively and defensively for that matter. And, have just one win to boast of from their last five competitive outings.
Taking into account that they have not got the better of this foe in any of their recent visits to Indian soil either, India are the favorites to clinch all three points. However, officials have confirmed that the hosts will be without prized defender Sandesh Jhingan at the heart of their defense. With two out of their last three meetings also ending in a tie, the safest punt, without a doubt, is a double chance.
Furthermore, the away side have found the back of the net in four of their previous five head to head clashes, two of which took place in India. Considering that the home team have not kept a clean sheet in any of their recent games either, count on both teams to rack up the goals tally in this one.
Also, veteran striker Sunil Chhetri found the back of the net in his last outing with the squad. Given that he bagged a brace when the two sides last locked horns as well, brave punters can even back the Indian forward to score anytime.
