For all of our match predictions, pre-game poll and statistics for India v Qatar, scroll down (inc. the best betting odds).
India are hoping to win again following a 0-1 WC Qualifiers - Asia success against Kuwait.
Under three goals per match were recorded in 6 of the last 6 fixtures where India have been participants. Regarding the goal split in this period, opposing sides scored a total of 0 and India totted up 7. Let’s see whether or not that trend will be sustained here.
Qatar go into this meeting after a 8-1 WC Qualifiers - Asia win to defeat Afghanistan in their previous outing.
In that game, Qatar managed 72% possession and 26 shots on goal with 17 on target. For Qatar, the scorers were Hassan Al Haydos (12'), Almoez Ali (15', 27', 33', 45') and Mustafa Meshaal (18'). For their opponents, Afghanistan got 2 shots at goal with 1 of them on target.
The numbers tell their own story, and Qatar have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 matches, seeing their opponents hit 12 goals in all. At the back, Qatar have seen their frailties exposed.
Head to head
The previous league clash featuring these sides was WC Qualifiers - Asia match day 7 on 03/06/2021 and the score finished India 0-1 Qatar.
We’re inclined to think that Qatar will most probably create a good amount of chances and successful shots on target.
At the other end, India could well struggle to get goals of their own but we do think that it’s more than likely that they will be hitting back at some stage here.
We can therefore see a comfortable 1-3 victory for Qatar come full-time.
