The owners of the house lead the key with four points earned. Indians and Thais come next with three. The flashlight is in the hands of Bahrain, with a dot.
United Arab Emirates
The United Arab Emirates made their debut against Bahrain and needed a penalty spot in the final minutes of the final stage to avoid leaving the field defeated. When converting the collection, they reached a 1-1 draw in the first round match.The difficulty was attributed to the nervousness of the premiere. However, in the second match, when this was no longer a factor, it was clear that the difficulties were imposed even by the technical limitations of the squad led by Italian coach Alberto Zaccheroni.Even with home owners having much longer ball possession than Indians (65% to 35%), the number of attempts to finalize the two selections was the same. Each side tried to hit the rival’s goal nine times. And the visitors still gave more accurate shots. It was three against two.However, the only two balls that the United Arab Emirates sent in the direction of India’s goal ended up going to the bottom of the net. The first goal was scored by Mubarak in the 41st minute of the first half and Ali Ahmed Mabkhout’s second in the 43rd minute.The four points earned almost ensure the UAE presence in the Round of 16. Although not sure, hardly a selection with this score will fail to advance even if it is among the best third placed. However, the mathematical guarantee of this situation requires at least a tie against India.
The Thais started their campaign surprisingly. They were thrashed by the India team 4-1 on Jan. 10. Clear result of their absolute inefficiency in handling that round thing they usually call ball.Despite holding the ball for 65% of the time, Thailand had fewer attempts to finish than Indians (14 to 15) and far fewer hits (three to seven). In this way, the team that is commanded by the Serbian Milovan Rajevac had no reason to complain about the trampling.In the second game, against Bahrain, the disaster prompted a drastic change in behavior. Starting with a bang. Four players from Thailand were warned with yellow card in the first half showing that they would try to prevent the rival from progressing in every way.Then, in contempt for possession of the ball. As they did not know what to do with her, they left the ball with the Bahrain athletes most of the time: 58% to 42%. It worked. Even with the rivals having tried to finish much more times (15 to 8) the lack of technical quality prevailed and the number of certain shots was very similar (three to two). In one of his two successful attempts, at 13 minutes of the second half, with Songkrasin, Thailand put the ball into the net. That was enough.
Football Prediction of the Day United Arab Emirates vs Thailand
The United Arab Emirates won seven of their 12 matches against Thailand. The Thais won only twice and there were three draws in the duel. The most recent matches were worth the qualifiers for the 2018 World Cup in Russia. At home, the Emirates scored 3-1. In Thailand, there was 1 to 1 match.
None of the selections have a title ambition in the tournament. The low technical quality of its castings avoids any pretension in this sense. As the host country, the United Arab Emirates are pushing to advance to the last 16. Thais can also get there, which would be an achievement against the country’s level of football. The tie will most likely make both reach the goal. In this way, the prognosis in the equality ends up being good option to guess in the confrontation for the third round of group A of the Glass of Asia.
