Syria vs China Prediction
Syria is unbeaten at home in all major competitions since 2016 (W6 D7). As the home team enjoys the home ground advantage in the game, these stats will prove helpful in the event.
With their good form at home overall and in the qualifiers, Syria is sure to toughen it up for China.
In Group A, the hosting contingent is in the first place with 9 points from three appearances. They have scored 11 goals in the tournament while conceding only 3 goals so far.
Al Soma’s hat-trick ensured a 4-0 win against Guam in their previous home encounter of this season.
China is also unbeaten in the group with two wins and a draw contributing to their 7 points. But their away streak has taken a dip in form lately. They have 4 points from their two away games in the qualifiers.
Evidently, the Team Dragon has won only four of the last ten away fixtures in their schedule. Even their previous trip on the road with the Philippines ended in a goalless draw.
The visitor had 59% ball possession in the ninety minutes with the Philippines. Even so, their conversion rate ended in null with 29 shots in the game (14 shots on goal). They did their attacking well with 7 corner kicks but are finding trouble at the finishing end.
Having faced all three teams from the third to the fifth spot in the group table, both teams have set their position in the top two. Syria faced the Philippines and bagged the three points while China left the Philippines with just one point from the game.
Hence, the hosting side has more dominance in the tournament than the visitor. As such, based on their form, the host has more chance of winning the game. Since both teams are strong, it is safer to go with a double chance.
