Our prediction for this World Cup 2022 match:
All eyes will be on King Saud University Stadium when Saudi Arabia and Uzbekistan face each other in the Group D derby. A place in the next WC qualifying round is at stake, and we are positive that both teams will leave their hearts on the field. Saudi Arabia are eyeing their fifth consecutive win of the process, but they would be happy with one point from Tuesday’s derby as well.
Experienced tactician Herve Renard is likely to stick to the 4-5-1 formation. Uzbekistan, on the other hand, face a must-win situation in the decider, meaning that a lively contest is on the cards. Given the attacking potential of the two sides, we believe that both teams to score betting option should be considered. When the two national teams met in Tashkent earlier in the process Saudi Arabia defeated Uzbekistan 3-2.
