A chance for the Socceroos to lead the group
Australia have the chance to go top of Group B as they host Saudi Arabia. Certainly, the Socceroos enjoyed playing in the Asian confederation since joining in 2006. In fact, Australia qualified for every World Cup since playing in the Asian qualifications. And their best result in the finals was reaching the last 16 round in 2006 when they lost to eventual champions Italy.
During their last match against Japan, the Socceroos suffered their first defeat in these qualifications. To be more exact, that was Australia’s first defeat in 11 competitive matches. Despite enjoying more possession than Japan, coach Graham Arnold’s team couldn’t create enough chances. With just three shots on target the whole game, Arnold needs to revive his attack come Thursday.

A difficult test for Saudi Arabia in down under
Saudi Arabia look very determined to play in Qatar 2022 and their results speak for themselves. Markedly the Green Ones appeared in the finals five times. Like their opponents, the Saudis reached the last 16 once in 1994. Thus recording their best result in all of their World Cup appearances. Also, they appeared in the 2018 finals in Russia and registered two draws and a defeat.
Moreover, Saudi Arabia are on a great winning streak with eight World Cup qualifying wins in a row. However, coach Herve Renard’s team had to be at their best to beat China in their last match. As can be seen from their match statistics, Saudi Arabia scored from their three shots on goal. In addition, the Green Ones played a great passing game with 428 completed passes.
Australia vs Saudi Arabia Key Points
- Australia scored in all of their last six home games
- Saudi Arabia were on the scoresheet in four of the last five away games
- According to statistics, there is a 100% chance for a goal to be scored in this match
Australia vs Saudi Arabia Prediction
This match is surely the most eye-catching one in round five of the Asian qualifiers. To explain, if Australia lose, they might be caught by Japan or Oman. On the other hand, a win will make the Socceroos a serious candidate to qualify for Qatar 2022.
As for Saudi Arabia, certainly, a draw would be a great result as it would keep them top of the table. But the fact that Renard’s men haven’t beaten Australia in their last five h2h meetings, will be a concern for the Fench coach.
Obviously, Australia are the favorites to win because of their h2h record with Vbet paying 1.55 for a home win. Despite seeing both teams score in the last five h2hs, the bookies are favoring not to see both teams score.
To conclude, we will back a combo bet on Vbet combining a double chance with the total goals scored in this match. As for our second prediction, we will play against the odds and bet both teams to score!
