Yemen will face Bahrain in Thursday’s WC Qualifiers - Asia clash.
View all of the Yemen v Bahrain predictions, poll and stats below - as well as the best betting odds.
Yemen will play in this match following on from a 1-1 WC Qualifiers - Asia drawn result vs Sri Lanka.
It’s been all too rare in recent games where Yemen have managed to hold out for a full 90 minutes. In fact, Yemen have been scored against in 5 of their previous 6 games, leaking 10 goals along the way.
Bahrain come into this meeting following on from a 1-0 International Friendlies win versus Philippines in their previous fixture.
In their last six outings, Bahrain have bagged a tally of 7 goals. Bahrain have also not failed to score in every single one of those games. In that time, their defenders have had 6 goals go against them. Such a pattern might not be sustained into this next game, however.
Head to head
Looking at their past head-to-head meetings stretching back to 26/06/2012 shows us that Yemen have won 1 of them & Bahrain 5, with the number of draws being 0.
A sum of 14 goals were shared by the two clubs throughout the course of those matches, with 2 of them for Al-Yaman A'Sa'eed and 12 netted by Al-Ahmar. The average number of goals per game works out to 2.33.
We feel that Bahrain will probably get more than enough chances to find the net on several occasions while not conceding against Yemen, who aren’t going to find it easy getting on the scoresheet at all.
Expecting that there will be a lot of chances.
Our selection here is for a trouble-free 0-3 winning margin with possibly even more for Bahrain when all’s said and done.
