Iraq and Vietnam get underway in the Asia Cup today and we have picked out a couple of betting tips for the match in Abu Dhabi. Iraq are the favourites to win and we’re expecting them to get off to a winning start.
Manager Carlos Queiroz has turned Iraq into one of the most consistent footballing nations in Asia, and he’ll be hoping to go deep into the tournament where the likes of Japan and Australia will probably be waiting. He’ll want to get his side off to a winning start against Vietnam today.
For their opening match in Group D of the Asian Cup, Iraq will face Vietnam after earning four points when playing the Far-Eastern team during qualification for this tournament. Iraq were unbeaten in all six group matches having netted in each of their games, and they were beaten only by Argentina last year. Vietnam needed to survive a later qualification round for this competition and although they enjoyed a decent success rate against neighbouring nations during 2018, an opening defeat is likely. Iraq to win to nil is today’s Iraq v Vietnam prediction at odds of 29/20 with Bet Victor.
We’re also going to have a go at predicting the correct score in this match and it should be a comfortable victory for Iraq, who are by far the stronger opposition here. It is hard to judge just how far away these sides are from the might of the European ans South American nations, but it is almost certain that Iraq are a class above today’s opponents.
