Vietnam vs Yemen Predictions and Match Preview

Vietnam vs Yemen
AFC Asian Cup.
Date: Wednesday, 16th January 2019.
Kick-Off at 16:00 UK/ 17:00 CET
Venue: Hazza bin Zayed Stadium (Al Ain).

In a comparatively unimportant game in Group D, Vietnam will play Yemen hoping to be one among the best third-place teams in the tournament.

The Golden Dragons had a terrible possible start to the tournament. After playing their hearts out on the pitch, they lost 3-2 against Iraq in their group opener. They could have got a point out of that match if they showed more composure in front of goal. In the following game, they lost to the strongest team in the group-Iran, with a final score 2-0.

Park Hang-seo’s men came to this tournament being the Suzuki Cup champions, but it was too much for them to handle the pressure. They had enough match practice before the Asian Cup but failed to make an impact against stronger teams like Iran and Iraq.

The outcome of this match will not affect Yemen in any manner, as they are already out of the tournament. After losing both their group games, they will wasn’t to bid farewell with something positive. The “Red Devils” have not scored even once in this tournament and inexperience have been the key to their downfall.

On their first Asian Cup appearance, they will go out in the group stage. They lost all but one of their previous 10 games-both competitive and friendlies. The only win came against a sorry Nepal team and even they scored against the so-called Devils.

As far the stats are concerned Vietnam will be favorites to win this match on Wednesday.
