Score Prediction

Iraq is very strong in one-on-one duels. Iraq has an important figure on the front line named Ali Jasim, who has scored two goals. Their performance graph tends to improve and that can have an impact on the team’s confidence.

Even so, the Indonesian National Team cannot lose before playing. The journey of Shin Tae-yong’s troops was one of the highlights of this tournament. Moreover, Rafael Struick will return to the starting XI, even though at the same time the team has lost captain Rizky Ridho due to suspension.

Score prediction: Iraq 1-2 Indonesia
