Vietnam vs Australia
Asia – WC Qualification
Date: Tuesday, 7 September 2021
Kick-off at 13:00 UK/ 14:00 CET
Venue: My Dinh National Stadium.
Australia are one of the favorites to qualify for the World Cup from Group B, and obviously they are targeting a top-two finish. Meanwhile, Vietnam are one of the weakest of the lot, and are also far less experienced compared to their counterparts for the day. Likely, expect a win for the Australians this Tuesday at the My Dinh National Stadium.
As of now, they are ranked 35th in the world – as opposed to their opposite number being placed 92nd in the same list.
They were also champions of Group B, and that too with a 100% winning record. In fact, not only had they won all eight of their games in the second round of qualification, but they also had an impressive 28-2 combined scorecard in the process.
In the meantime, the Vietnamese had to settle for a second-place finish in Group G, and were winless in three of their eight fixtures. Do also note that they had a combined scorecard of 13-5 from their eight games.
Judging current form of both squads, expect a win for Australia this match-day.

Vietnam vs Australia Prediction
Vietnam lost 3-1 on the road the last match-day, against Saudi Arabia. In the meantime, the Australians had won 3-0 at home against the Chinese.
Going on, Vietnam are on a two-fixture losing run, and they had conceded a total of six goals in the process. Do also note that they had a total of just one clean sheet from the past five games.
On the other hand, their counterparts are on a nine-match winning run, and they had scored a total of 31 goals in the process. And in return, they had let in just two goals.
Moreover, they had lost just twice on the road in the past two-year period, and they had scored three or more goals in three of the preceding four road trips.
Taking into account these observations, expect a thorough win for the in-form Australia at the My Dinh.
