If you are not certain what is the best bet for the India vs Bahrain duel, check our top betting tips for this match:
Bahrain to Win
Although India enters this game after winning SAFF Championship with a 3-0 win over Nepal, Bahrain is the clear favourite in this game – they are the better team on paper and they will play at home.
In addition to this, Bahrain beat Indian in their last four h2h meetings, although the two teams met in 2019 for the last time and before that in 2011 and in the 90s. So, it's a question how relevant those games are, but still, Bahrain is our choice to win this match.
Over 2.5 Total Goals
As we already mentioned, these two teams didn't meet often in the past couple of decades, but three of their last four head-to-head duels have gone over 2.5 total goals.
In addition to this, India and Bahrain will meet in a friendly game and that's another reason whey over 2.5 total goals sounds like a very reasonable bet.
Both Teams to Score – Yes
Since we expect to see at least three goals in this game, we can also see both teams scoring in this match. After all, both teams scored in two of the last four h2h duels between India and Bahrain.
Furthermore, this is a friendly match and we don't expect the teams to be overly cautious and focused on defending, so both teams scoring should be a good bet.
India vs Bahrain preview: Two similar teams to meet in a friendly game
Despite the fact that they are the second most-populated country in the world, India rarely had any success in football. In fact, the team never managed to qualify for a World Cup so far. India did have a bit more success in Asian Cup, where they were runner-ups back in 1964, but in recent years they often fail to qualify for this competition as well since they only appeared twice since 1988.
Just like their upcoming rival in the friendly game, Bahrain also never saw the main stage of a World Cup. However, Bahrain is the more successful football nation recently since they qualified for the last five Asian Cups in a row and they even finished fourth back in 2004, which is their greatest success on international stage.
