United Arab Emirates vs. Australia

Tuesday, June 07, 2022 – 02:00 PM EDT at Ahmad Bin Ali Stadium

Australia: Team Trends

  • Australia is unbeaten in 30 of their 34 WC Qualification Asia meetings.
  • Australia has won just 1 of their last 7 games in all competitions.

Australia: Soccer Breakdown

The last time Australia faced a playoff situation to reach a World Cup was in 2018. The Aussies successfully qualified for the Russian edition, so a repeat performance of this outing will be on their minds.

Australia is ranked 42nd in the world and hasn't missed a World Cup since 2002. They've won 11 from 19 games away from home, and there's no denying they possess the more talented squad of the two.

Graham Arnold's men sailed through the second round of qualifying with a perfect record, but the third-round group staged a battle between Saudi, Japan, and Oman. However, the Socceroos did secure a playoff position, and they'll be looking to keep the momentum high following a 2-1 win over Jordan last time out.

United Arab Emirates: Team Trends

  • UAE is undefeated in 20 of their last 24 home games in all competitions.
  • UAE has seen under 2.5 goals scored in their previous 6 games.

United Arab Emirates: Soccer Breakdown

The United Arab Emirates hasn't witnessed their team qualify for a World Cup for 32 long years. They suffered elimination in the Italia 90' during the group stage and have failed to reach the World Cup ever since. Still, they're now a mere two victories shy of having their shot at Qatar 2022.

With a shocking victory over South Korea under the newly appointed manager Rodolfo Arruabarrena, World Cup hopes were salvaged when UAE held onto a third-placed finish. They'll head into the inter-confederation playoff if they overcome the Aussies on Tuesday.

We should expect the tactical masterplans to be left at the training ground for this one, as these two sides will meet on neutral territory, and UAE has lost 4 of their last 7 games. Notably, all of those losses were suffered away from home, one of which was a 5-0 dismantling from this year's World Cup hosts.

United Arab Emirates vs. Australia: Betting Pick and Prediction

The best sportsbooks and betting sites favor Australia with a 57.8% implied probability, and I believe this estimation gives UAE more credit than they deserve.

Drawing 1-1 versus Gambia – a team ranked 55 positions below them in the FIFA rankings – doesn't bode well for UAE's current form, and it's no secret that Australia owns the more superior squad.

Betting picks for this World Cup qualification game should be kept simple. Take the Australian moneyline at a reasonable price.

Score Prediction: UAE 0 - Australia 2
