Yemen vs Uzbekistan
World Cup Qualifier
Date: Friday, 11 June 2021
Kick-off 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: King Fahd International Stadium (Riyadh).
Uzbekistan are firm favourites to beat Yemen in the World Cup qualifying fixture of Friday.
Having won in 4 of the 6 fixtures so far, Uzbeks are second in the standings, 2 points behind Saudi Arabia and they will be keen to win here to stay in the race of group winners.
Saudi is Uzbekistan’s matchday 8 opponent and it will be tough. Therefore, they must win against Yemen to give them a chance to go through as one of the best second ranked teams.
Yemen are at the foot of the standings after managing a humble 5 points from 6 games. A win against Palestine and draws against Singapore and Saudi Arabia earned them the points, while losing the remaining three conceding heavily.
Yemen vs Uzbekistan Head-to-head
- Uzbekistan won in each of the previous 5 head-to-head meetings with Yemen.
- The reverse of the corresponding match saw a 5-0 scoreline at full-time.
- Three of their 5 duels saw over 3.5 goals at full-time.
Yemen vs Uzbekistan Prediction
Yemen have been on a downhill since their appearance at Asia Cup in 2019 and managed wins just twice in the 2-year span.
Uzbekistan are a decent Asian side and they are known for making deep runs in the World Cup qualifiers. They are coming on the back of a morale boosting 5-0 win against Singapore and knowing no room for error, expect a similar result at Fahd International Stadium on Friday.
