China to emerge victorious

Total goals over 2.5

Vietnam and China come on the back of a 1-0 defeat in the recent game. However, it is clear that both teams are defensively poor as they both conceded three goals in the preceding match. China do score a lot of goals in home matches, while the defensive woes faced by Vietnam could lead to goals.

Both teams to score – yes

China have not scored last two games but they do have a very strong home record. Vietnam will be looking to capitalise on the struggles faced by China in recent fixtures. This can end up producing goals at both ends due to the defensive woes.
