Iraq vs Oman: Top Free Betting Tips
Iraq are scheduled to host Oman in the first round of the Gulf Cup of Nations on Friday, 6 January. Both teams make an appearance in this game on the back of an undefeated pattern in Friendlies.
Match Result Prediction: Iraq to Win
Iraq has registered two victories in the last five outings and conceded two defeats in that course. On the other hand, Oman secured consecutive three wins before this game. However, Iraq will be confident in the home advantage where they have won four of the previous five meetings in different competitions. The recent H2Hs of these teams have ended in ties successively but we predict Iraq to fancy their chances in front of the home fans this time.
Total Goals Prediction: Under 2.5 Goals
Both teams have been involved in the low-scoring total consecutively in recent attempts and we expect the same kind of pattern in this game. All of the previous five H2Hs of these teams at the home of Iraq have also ended with below 2.5 goals. Iraq have found the back of the net seven times in the last five outings at home, scoring three in a single game. The Reds are seven worse and rattled the net only four times in the last five away outings.
Correct Score Prediction: 1-0 to Iraq
Oman has failed to score in two of the last four away outings and they have a difficult defensive challenge for the next game. Iraq has claimed three clean sheets in the previous four attempts. On the scoring end, Iran has hit the back of the net in all of the previous six outings. However, they have scored more than once in only one of them. So we expect to witness a 1-0 scoreline for the victory of Iraq in this game.
