UAE vs Kyrgyzstan
Asia- AFC Asian Cup.
Date: Monday, 21st January 2019.
Kick-Off at 17:00 UK/ 18:00 CET
Venue: Zayed Sports City Stadium, Abu Dhabi.
The hosts are still on the hunt for the Asian Cup. After topping the Group A, without losing a match they will face Kyrgyzstan for a chance to play in the quarter-finals of their own tournament.
Their group opener was a 1-1 draw against Bahrain. They came up with an impressive 2-0 win over a tough Indian team in the following game. A 3 game unbeaten run was completed when they held Thailand for yet another draw.
Manager Alberto Zaccheroni will believe that his team has what it takes to edge past the White Falcons. His team is yet to face challenges as the teams they faced were not much of a pain to overcome.
The Falcons just got through to the knockout stages is one of the best third-place teams. After losing the first two group matches against China and mighty South Korea, they won 3-1 against the Philippines. That 3 points proved to be crucial for them to get here.
In their first ever Asian Cup they have made a major breakthrough independent of the way they qualified. If they can keep steady in defense under pressure, they may be able to make the home fans silent when they face U.A.E.
We are surely in for a nail-biting game on Tuesday, as the home fans will come in flocks to support their nation.
UAE vs Kyrgyzstan: Head-to-head (h2h)
- This will be the first time both these sides will be facing each other in a competitive match.
UAE vs Kyrgyzstan: Prediction
All matches of U.A.E in the Cup until now had less than 2.5 goals at the full time. So even though the 2 matches of the Falcons had a different scoreline, I don’t think Zaccheroni’s men will be attacking too much. Since this is a do or die match both sides will be playing defensively too. Thus we can place a bet on a score with less than 2.5 goals with 1.75 odds.
The Sons of Zayed have scored in all their group games. Except against South Korea, Falcons also found the target twice in the Cup. So we may see them both score in this upcoming match and a bet can be placed on the same with 2.10 odds.
