Australia vs India Lineups & Team News

Australia

Socceroos are on the right track to securing a fifth consecutive clean sheet if our Australia vs India predictions succeed. The last match in which coach Graham Arnold’s boys conceded a goal was the extremely difficult visit at Wembley Stadium, where England pipped Australia 1-0.

Predicted lineup – Ryan (GK), Miller, Souttar, Burgess, Bos, Metcalfe, Baccus, Irvine, Goodwin, Borrello & Maclaren

India

Not only did India got thrashed 0-3 at Kalinga Stadium on the 21st of November, but Chhetri and his colleagues in the attack couldn’t produce a single shot on target. If India wants to get something out of this AFC Asian Cup game, then the players will have to be at their lethal best, as Socceroos’ backline is quite impressive these days.

Predicted lineup – Singh (GK), Poojari, Jhingnan, Bheke, Bose, Wangjam, Ralte, Singh, Thapa, Chhangte & Chhetri

Player to Watch: Jamie Maclaren

Melbourne City’s sensational finisher is the player to watch in our Australia vs India prediction for a good reason. Not only did he become the top A-League goalscorer during the 2022/23 campaign, but he also keeps a good chance of defending his award in the current campaign as well, despite not partaking in a couple of games for Hearts. He bagged a lovely hattrick for Australia in the match against Bangladesh back in November, so we rightfully expect him to show more of the same against India as well.
