Philippines vs China Prediction
Goran Milojevic and his men were given a much-needed breather in their last group stage clash on the road after they pulled off an emphatic 4-1 victory over Guam. The win also brought a dismal eight-match losing streak of theirs to a halt. And, has helped them climb up to the third spot in Group A.
Be that as it may, the impressive win against Guam does not guarantee success for Philippines this week. Their counterparts are undoubtedly one of the toughest sides to take down in Asia at the moment and will be making the trip to Panaad Stadium on the back of a solid two-match winning streak.
The visitors thrashed seven unanswered goals past Guam in their last clash at home. Prior to which they slotted another five past Maldives in their previous trip on the road. Furthermore, the away side have admitted defeat just once in their past four outings. Which again, to their defense, was against the mighty South Koreans.
It is also worth mentioning that the guests have registered the win with ease in each of their last three head to head meetings. To make matters worse for the Philippines faithful, the hosts have not had a taste of success at home in any of their last four games here.
Taking into account the stellar form that the visitors are on at the moment, it will take nothing short of a miracle for Philippines to deprive China of all three points on Tuesday.
Additionally, the visitors have had their scoring boots on in each of their recent clashes. They have already hit double digits in the goal-scoring charts after just two games.
The away side have not been holding back in their previous head to head clashes with this foe either and have found the back of the net thirteen times from their last three games alone. Considering that the hosts conceded thrice in their most recent meeting with this opponent alone, expect China to score over 1.5 goals without fail.
