Jordan vs Vietnam
Asia: AFC Asian Cup
Date: Sunday, 20th January 2019
Kick-off at 11.00 UK/ 12.00 CET
Venue: Rashid Al-Maktoum Stadium.
The Chivalrous come into this tie after a high-flying campaign in their group stage. Skipper Amer Shafi and his men blasted Group B opposition through the roof and remain one of the few groups unbeaten in the competition. The topper tag has earned them a generous draw in the form of the Golden Dragons.
Park Hang-seo’s men climbed through into this stage of the tournament as the last of the third-placed teams. With a solitary win to their name and two losses to accompany along, no one expects them to do wonders against a tough opponent.
In spite of the stark contrast in fortunes and form, the chance to showcase their talents in the world stage has helped these minnows’ growth in the sport immensely.

Jordan vs Vietnam Prediction
With the belief they have acquired over the last three games in the Asian Cup, the mental edge surely lies with Vital Borkelmans’s men. The team has not conceded a single goal in the competition. Once more, their defense will be called upon to see them through to the last eight.
Expect the game to be played at a slow pace. Both teams will play it safe and consider avoiding blunders and easy concessions as the top priority. As the game progresses the players will start looking for goals.
It’s common knowledge that the only reason Park Hang-seo’s men was able to scrape through was because of the presence of Yemen in their group. After losing both their opening two games in the group stage, the Golden Dragons took advantage of the weakling in their midst. But the trick will not work in the Round of 16.
The team from West Asia will play to their strengths and keep a clean sheet. Their incessant pressure on the weak opponents will open to a goal somehow, and the players will hold on to it. Later in the closing stages of the game, Vietnam will have no option but to leave safety at bay and play for an equalizer, which will give way to one more goal.
