Prediction for Nepal - Australia. 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 which the leader of group B will play with one of the outsiders, end?
On October 10, 2019, in the third round of the current selection, Australia shipped 5 unanswered balls to Nepal. Will the Australians be able to repeat something similar on a visit?
Nepal is the outsider of the group. Yes, he is stronger than Taiwan, which he beat twice in the selection and scored 6 points. But in games with others, he is a clear underdog – for 5 matches," 0 " scored and 19 conceded. In 2021, the team managed to play 6 matches – 4 friendly and 2 official. In the friendlies, we have 2 goalless draws (with the youth national team of Kyrgyzstan and with Bangladesh), a 2:1 victory over Bangladesh and a 2:6 defeat by Iraq. And in June, as part of the selection process, Nepal beat Taiwan 2-0 on the 3rd, and lost 0-3 to Jordan on the 7th.
Australia goes into the selection with a 100% result. 18 points after 6 rounds, 24 scored, only 2 conceded – in the first place of the Australians and their exit to the third stage of selection, there is no doubt. The team without much swing in the form of friendly matches in June 2021 has already managed to win 2 major victories – on June 3, the Australians scored 3 unanswered goals against Kuwait, and on the 7th they shipped 5 against Taiwan (although they themselves missed 1).
