Vietnam’s wait for a point to go on

It’s easy to look at Oman’s results and say ‘they’ve lost two of their last three’ but form runs deeper than three games; at least it does when you’ve won seven of the last 10 games. It take more than a couple of defeats to break that sort of confidence. That is especially true when the team you’re facing have lost four consecutive games. Unfortunately for Vietnam, that is the streak they’re on. Their hopes of qualifying for the World Cup look as good as over already.

Expect a good game with goals

Our second tip for the Oman vs Vietnam match is that there will be over 2.5 goals. Is it nailed on? No, it’s not. Is there value in the betting odds? We absolutely believe so. Oman have gone over 2.5 in their last two games but the three prior to that were all south of the threshold needed to win this bet. Vietnam, however, have seen four of their last five pass the 2.5 goals mark. There is a clinching stat that brings value for us; that’s the game averages. For Oman they’ve averaged 3.4 over their last five with Vietnam averaging 3.6

We fancy both teams to score

Now we come to our last prediction and we’re backing both teams to score. We’ve already looked at the fact we think there will be a fair few goals and that’s largely because neither side are watertight at the back. Oman’s last five games have seen them concede six goals – five of them came in the last two – and Vietnam have shipped 11 in the same period. The two nations can both score goals too; Oman have scored 11. Vietnam have scored seven.

Oman vs Vietnam: Team Overview


In general terms Oman have been in decent form but they won’t be overly happy with the start they’ve made to their qualifying campaign having taken just three points from the nine available. They will see a home game against Vietnam as a good opportunity to double their tally though. Al-Seeb man Abdul Aziz Al-Muqbali will be the man tasked with scoring the goals.


Were Vietnam ever realistic contenders to qualify for the World Cup finals? Probably not. Would they have liked to give a good account of themselves? Of course. At the moment, they are not going to do either. If they’re to beat Oman they’ll need to tighten up at the back, which means they’ll want a big performance from Ngoc Hai Que, who will be tasked with organising the backline.
