Lebanon vs Syria: Top Free Betting Tips
Lebanon still have a chance to reach the 4th round of the WC qualifications and fight for the last spots in the tournament. This is the perfect opportunity for them against the easiest opponent in the group.
Total Goals – Over 2.5
There are teams like South Korea and Iran who always make under 2.5s between them and there are teams like Syria and Lebanon who always have the most goal-packed games. Here are a couple of examples. The previous match between them in the qualifiers ended in a 2:3 win for Lebanon. At the same time, the last five head-to-head games between them since 2010 have also ended with more than 2.5 goals. In fact, four of five had 4 or 5 goals in them.
Draw No Bet – Lebanon
As mentioned, Lebanon won the previous match against Syria and it was an incredibly dramatic win with 2:3. Now, we expect them to win again but since neither side is particularly good overall, we will go for the draw no bet option, which is safer. Overall, Lebanon are fighting for their place in the next round and they need the three points or it will be the end for them. Syria have nothing to play for at this point and they have been the weakest team.
Alternative Corners – Under 10
Lebanon take a considerable number of corners in most of their games – usually at least 4 or 5. On the other side, however, Syria have been taking almost no corners in their matches and have the weakest attack overall, so we expect to see some taken by the hosts but not more than 1-2 for Syria on the other end. Overall, we think that there will be less than 10 as in most of Syria's games.
Lebanon vs Syria: Form, Recent Games, and News
Most of the group in this third stage has been performing badly and has not won a lot of games. There is simply too big of a difference between Iran and South Korea and all other teams. Lebanon have won one out of eight games and that win came against Syria exactly. They still stand a chance to qualify and this match is crucial. They have not won a game since that last win against Syria, so this game is the perfect opportunity.
Syria have been the weakest team in the entire third stage and their defense has been absolutely terrible. They have conceded 15 goals in 8 fixtures, which is far worse than all of the other stats in the group. They are one of two teams without a win in 8 fixtures and they lost 6 of those. They fill have a difficult time even against an average national team like Lebanon's.
