Palestine vs Jordan
Asia- AFC Asian Cup.
Date: Tuesday, 15th January 2019.
Kick-Off at 13:30 UK/ 14:30 CET
Venue: Mohammed Bin Zayed Stadium (Abu Dhabi).
Jordan will be aiming to improve their best performance in the Asian Cup this time around. They have all the merits to reach the next stage as they meet Palestine in their third group match on Tuesday.
The Lions of Canaan are at the bottom of group B with just 1 point in their 2 matches so far. As of now, they have no chances of progressing as the reigning champions and Jordan are looking good to go through. After a goalless draw to Syria in their opening match, they lost 0-3 to Australia. Both they and Syria failed to net a goal in this tournament so far.
Coach Noureddine Ould Ali will be looking to get his side a memorable ending to this year’s Asia Cup, with a win against the strong Jordan. But the team from West Asia need to improve their gameplay if they mean to get at least a point out of this match.
This is Jordan’s 5th appearance in the Asia Cup so far. They reached the quarterfinals in 2004 and 2011 and can make it to that stage depending on their opponents in the second round. They have been playing well so far, winning both their group games.
The Chivalrous are yet to concede a goal this time, which makes them one of the best defensive sides in the league so far. After defeating the defending champions Australia in their opener, they were absolutely on fire against Syria. A 2-0 win over the Syrians will give them a boost while facing the Palestinians.
We may be in for a hugely one-sided game on Tuesday as the Knights are not in good form and they have never been victorious over these opponents.
Palestine vs Jordan: Head-to-head (h2h)
- These sides met in only one competitive game back in 2015.
- That match was won by Jordan 1-5 in an away fixture.
Palestine vs Jordan: Prediction
Both these found the net previously when they faced off in the international stage. Most probably that won’t be the case on Tuesday. Jordan has not given any goals in the tournament while their opponents have not scored one either. So we can bet on both teams not scoring with 1.80 odds.
Jordan is not likely to lose to a team that is not on song, even if they are better in FIFA Rankings. Also, Jordan is unbeaten in all games played between them, even friendlies. So I strongly recommend to bet on Vital Borkelmans’ side to win comfortably with 2.50 odds and be group champions.
