TEAM COMPARISON & TIPS – IRAQ VS LEBANON PREDICTION
Iraq is receiving a higher appreciation from the house when playing at the home field. However, the Iraqi players are not allowed to be subjective because Lebanon is also showing high determination.
Iraq‘s form in the last 5 matches: W W L D L
Excellently holding the Korean host in the first match, thinking that Iraq would create a surprise in the next round, they let Iran beat them with a score of 3-0 at home. This loss made Iraq fall to last place in Group A. However, the gap with the 3rd place team is only 1 point, so Iraq needs to make more efforts if they want to win tickets to Qatar.
The recent match Iraq was played at home to welcome Iranian players. This was a match where the Iraqi strikers played quite disappointingly. According to statistics at the end of the game, Iraq only launched 2 shots compared to 12 of Iran. Therefore, losing to Iran with a score of 0-3 is not too surprising.
Oman’s form in the last 5 matches: W W W L W
Lebanon’s performance is similar to the opponent after the past 2 rounds in the WC 2022 qualifiers. They drew the Arab Emirates in the first match and lost to Korea in the next round and fell to 5th place in Group A. Obviously, Lebanon’s chance to continue in this tournament is almost impossible.
Having to be a guest before Korea is not what any team wants at this time. Lebanon had to go through the first 90 minutes of difficult competition and most of the time was under the attack of the Kimchi team. Lebanon’s efforts also only helped this team hold out until the 59th minute when Kwon Chang-Hoon was the one to score a 1-0 victory for Korea.
Select: Iraq FT.

Iraq’s strikers performed poorly in this year’s tournament when they only scored 5 goals in the last 5 matches and no goals after 3 matches in the last WC qualifying. As for the defense, the number of goals that Iraq received was also 5.
For Lebanon’s part, they are even worse than Iraq in terms of attack. After the last 5 matches, Lebanon’s strikers have only 4 goals. However, the Lebanese defense only conceded 3 times.
