Iraq vs China – International Friendlies :Iraq and China face off at the Basra Sport City Stadium
On an international friendly on December 23rd.
The Iraqi side comes into this encounter under some distrust after 4 winless matches. Despite Iraq not being a great powerhouse in terms of football, they have been able to make life hard for some higher tier national teams.
On the last 5 matches, they have gotten 1 victory, 3 draws and 1 loss. In this period, the team has beaten Palestine, drew with China, Kuwait and Bolivia and lost to Argentina.
On the last 10 occasions they’ve played at home, they have gotten 3 victories, 5 draws and 2 losses. They have only scored 13 goals and have conceded 11. One of their main stand-out players is the attacker Mohannad Abdulraheem.
As for the Chinese team, in turn, they also aren’t very feared, but they are going through a slightly better moment of form than their opponents. They are unbeaten for 4 matches already and they come into this clash very confident.
On the last 5 matches they’ve played, they have gotten 1 victory, 3 draws and 1 loss. In that period, they have beaten Syria, drew with India, Bahrain and Palestine, besides losing to Qatar.
Iraq vs China – Betting Tip and Prediction: :
Playing away from home, the Chinese have recorded a campaign of 2 victories, 4 draws and 4 losses on the last 10 matches. They have scored 11 goals and have conceded 14 and their main stand-out player is the attacker Wu Lei.
I know that China is investing a lot on football and the focus is mainly to improve their national team and feature in a World Cup. Everything that was made is still not enough, but the team has definitely improved a lot.
But Iraq also has a competitive national team. Most of their athletes play in bigger stages of world football and that brings a lot of experience for a team that doesn’t have a lot of tradition in terms of football.
I don’t think that the Iraqi deserve such high odds here. The match is very balanced but I still see more quality on the Iraqi side. Another aspect that might be valuable to explore here are the goals, or the absence of them.
I believe this will be a very tight match without a lot of goal scoring occasions and therefore, the “Unders” also appear as good betting alternatives.
