Thailand vs UAE Prediction
The hosts are unbeaten in their qualifying clashes so far, the last of which was a very convincing 3-0 victory over Indonesia on the road. However, Thailand salvaged no more than a point against Vietnam in their previous home clash, which has left them second to UAE who have got off to the perfect start.
Their counterparts are boasting an impressive four-match winning streak in all competitions at the moment. The visitors picked up a 2-1 victory against Malaysia in their last outing and went on to thrash five unanswered goals past hapless Indonesia in their previous matchup at home as well.
Furthermore, the guests have not been showing any signs of slowing down, even in the absence of home advantage, and have tasted success in three out of their last four outings. It is also worth mentioning that UAE have been faring well in their previous meetings with this foe and have been at the losing end just once in their last eight clashes.
However, taking into account that the away side have been sharing the spoils in their last two visits here in a running, a double chance favoring UAE is sizing up to be the safest punt in this one.
Additionally, it needs saying that on home soil, Thailand have been at their defensive best. Despite missing out on the win in their last five games here, the squad have restricted their foes from breaching them no more than once, at the most, in each of those matchups. Considering that their last two head to head fixtures here have also finished with fewer than 2.5 goals on the charts, expect a low scoring affair by all means.
