Prediction for Kuwait - Jordan. 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 in the group of two contenders for the second place in group B end?
In 2019, these teams played 2 matches against each other – in August in Kuwait as part of the Asian Championship and in October in Jordan in the selection for the World Cup. Both matches ended in a draw – 1:1 and 0:0, respectively.
The national team of Kuwait after 6 matches played has 10 points in its asset and is 3 points behind Jordan. The team is relatively scoring (17 goals scored), with a good defense (6 conceded). In January and March 2021, Kuwait played 4 friendly matches and never won (defeats against Palestine, Iran and Saudi Arabia, a draw with Lebanon). The team was completely unprepared to put up a decent resistance to Australia in the first official match, which took place on June 3 – Kuwait lost 0: 3.
Jordan has 13 points to its credit and has good prospects of finishing second in the group. To do this, the Jordanians just need to play in a productive draw. But it is better to win, of course. Especially with a defense like Jordan's (2 conceded in 6 rounds). Jordan has conducted several preparatory cycles for the resumption of official matches. In February, March and May, the Jordanians played 9 friendly matches – 3 wins, 2 draws and 4 losses. But the results are not the main thing. The main thing is teamwork, game tone. This the Jordanians acquired and it resulted in a 3-0 away win against Nepal on June 7.
