Palestine vs Saudi Arabia Prediction
The hosts returned empty-handed from their last trip on the road, with Singapore edging past them with a narrow 2-1 scorecard. Their only other matchup in the group, however, which was at home, saw Palestine slot two unanswered goals past Uzbekistan.
On the other hand, Saudi Arabia are currently unbeaten in their last three games in all competitions and will be making the trip to Palestine on the back of a thumping 3-0 victory over Singapore at home. The visitors were undoubtedly much the better side in that matchup. They took a whopping sixteen attempts at goal, more than half of which were right on target.
The away side have also been at the losing end just twice in their previous six clashes across various tournaments and just once in their last three outings. Furthermore, the guests have not admitted defeat in any of their previous two visits to this venue either.
Taking into account the convincing win they were able to pull off in their most recent matchup, the safest punt would be backing either a draw or Saudi Arabia to come out on top.
In addition, the hosts have added four goals to their tally so far, two of which came from their previous home clash. Saudi Arabia have not been shy in finding the back of the net either and have scored five from their respective matchups.
Considering that the away side have not kept a clean sheet in any of their last two outings, count on the hosts to get their names on the scoresheet along with Palestine before the end of the ninety minutes.
