Jordan vs Saudi Arabia
Date: Tuesday, 20 November 2018
Kick-Off at 18:00 UK
Venue: King Abdullah International Stadium (Amman).
Jordan are going to host Saudi Arabia in the Middle East clash which is going to be contested on Tuesday evening.
After four matches without tasting a win, the hosts managed to celebrate in their latest clash against India. We were able to see an extraordinary goal in that match as Amer Sabbah, who is Jordan’s goalkeeper, scored the goal direct from his penalty area. Although home side hasn’t been too bad in the back, their poor finishing costed them of booking better results. Now, they want to put another good performance against neighbours and cheer up their fans.
Saudi Arabia have also been in variable form lately as they managed to win two times in the last five occasions. They didn’t have a successful campaign in World Cup as the visitors managed to beat only Egypt in the final round of the group stage. However, Juan Antonio Pizzi’s side lost only to Brazil during that period and they want to keep up with good results and build up their confidence. They’ve also been involved in low scoring matches lately as their last three games remained under 2.5 margin.
Jordan vs Saudi Arabia: Head-to-head
The crowd was able to enjoy four head to head clashes of these two sides and Saudi Arabia have been slightly more successful. The visitors managed to beat their rivals twice, while Jordan celebrated a win back in 2011. Interestingly, only that one was a low scoring game and other three encounters went over 2.5 margin
Jordan vs Saudi Arabia: Prediction
Jordan have been involved only in friendly matches during 2018 and that might be their weakness in the build-up of this clash. Although a close battle is expected, Saudi Arabia should be able to get back home with a victory.
Although their head to head clashes have been pretty efficient so far, these two sides played pretty tight matches lately. We believe they are going to continue in the same fashion and in this one the crowd shouldn’t be able to enjoy more than two goals.
