Prediction for Indonesia - UAE. On Friday, June 5, 2021, the next round of the second stage of qualification for the 2022 World Cup from Asia will be played. How will the match of the 8th round end in which one of the contenders for getting into the third stage of qualification will play with the main outsider of the group?
On October 10, 2019, in the third round of the current selection, the UAE shipped 5 unanswered goals to Indonesia. Will the UAE team be able to repeat the success on the road?
Indonesia is the undisputed outsider of the group. After 7 rounds, 1 point, 5 scored and 22 conceded. After almost a 2-year pause, the team got together in May of this year and played 2 friendly matches, in each of which they conceded 3 goals-2:3 with Afghanistan and 1:3 with Oman. And then there were the June selection games-2: 2 against Thailand and 0: 4 against Vietnam
The UAE national team now has a great chance of getting into the third stage of qualification. The fact is that having won both of the June selection matches (4-0 against Malaysia and 3-1 against Thailand), the Arabs not only firmly hold the second place, but also came close to the first, which they will play in the next round. The gap from Vietnam is only 2 points and it is extremely important that it does not suddenly increase. The team is in good shape, as evidenced not only by the June results, but also by the March 6: 0 in a friendly game with India, and the May 5: 1 in a freight train with Jordan.
