AUSTRALIA VS CHINA PREDICTION: TEAM COMPARISON & TIPS
Australia has come back strongly in the last 2 years in major tournaments. The “kangaroo” owns a generation of talented players with a series of stars at the maturity of their careers. The solid and extremely pragmatic play helped Australia win all 8 matches in the second qualifying round, scoring 28 goals and conceding only 2 times. They even beat China 2-0 in AFC 2015 and beat Oman 5-0 in a friendly series. The ability to keep a clean sheet is not an issue against China, especially when Australia is playing at home. However, in the opening match, Australia also had to calculate a lot because ahead was a difficult march to Vietnam.
Chinese football, after many years of decline, is showing signs of improvement thanks to a massive naturalization strategy. Passed the second qualifying round with a second place in Group A, 2 points behind Syria. After 8 matches, Li Tie’s army won 6 draws 1 lost 1, scored 30 goals and only conceded 3 times. The most prominent is the solid defense and physical strength of South American players. China has a very active preparation with a series of 7 consecutive victories, including 5 clean sheets. With what has been shown, China can cause many difficulties for Australia on the day of the military opening.
The caution in the opening match and the good defense of both teams hardly contributed many goals. In fact, 4/5 past encounters also ended with an Under score. Especially in a game as important as this rematch, that scenario is completely repeatable.
Select: Under 2.25 FT.
In terms of class and achievements in the continental arena, China cannot compare with Australia. The “kangaroo” has participated in the World Cup 5 times and has passed the group stage once. This is also a period when Australia is much more appreciated, especially after the achievement of winning in the second qualifying round. The difference is quite clear when looking at China’s achievements in the past 15 years, having only reached the quarterfinals of Asia twice and completely absent from the World Cups.
Australia’s performance is also completely superior after 8 consecutive victories, the latest being a 1-0 victory over Jordan. Although China has increased naturalization since the second qualifying round, the positive results are against weak opponents. True strength is still a big question mark, especially the spirit of competition because of the colors of the flags and colors of the South American stars. Having to play away from home in front of a different team like Australia puts China at a psychological disadvantage. Winning after 90 minutes for Australia was a wise choice.
Select: Australia FT.
The European odds show that the house highly values Australia’s chances of winning. There is no doubt after the convincing performance of teachers and students Graham Arnold. The gameplay is getting more and more perfect with outstanding level, 3 points is a completely deserved result.
Select: Australia FT.
