Saudi Arabia to Win or Draw

Japan has been in fine form in their recent qualifying fixtures, earning four wins in succession. Saudi Arabia are the only team in Group B to remain unbeaten seven matches in. Their last meeting concluded in favour of the Green Falcons with a slim margin and more of the same is expected in this meeting. Both sides can ill-afford to drop points as Australia follow them closely. We are anticipating a close affair, one that sees Saudi Arabia secure a positive result on the road as they stretch their unbeaten run on the road in qualifying fixtures to seven fixtures.

Total Goals – Under 2.5

Neither Japan nor Saudi Arabia has earned a reputation for high scoring affairs. With 13 and 10 goal involvements in their seven WC qualifying fixtures, they have seen the majority of their competitive affairs conclude with Under 2.5 total goals. This is also evidenced in their most recent outings. Japan has only seen one of its last five fixtures conclude in this manner. For visiting Saudi Arabia, this tally stands at six successive low scoring fixtures.
