A friendly match Saudi Arabia – Jamaica will take place on November 14 at the Prince Fesal Bin Fad Stadium. Who will be lucky in this confrontation? Read about it in our forecast.
Saudi Arabia has not entered the field for 11 months, so it is very difficult to say what this squad is like now. Therefore, we will tell you how Hervé Renard’s wards performed last year.
The Saudis took part in the Gulf Cup of Nations, in which they reached the final. In the group, the team took first place, beating Bahrain (2: 0) and Oman (3: 1) after being defeated in the first round from Kuwait (1: 3). In the semifinals, the Eagles knocked out strong Qatar (1: 0). However, in the final, a real embarrassment took place, because no one expected defeat from Bahrain (0: 1), which had been confidently beaten earlier.
Jamaica , unlike its rival, still played one match in 2020, but that one took place a long time ago, back in March. Theodore Whitmore team met with the Bermuda national team. In each half, the team managed to score one time. In the first half of the meeting, the account was opened by Jourdain Fletcher, and in the second 45-minute he doubled the lead in the account and put an end to the game by Kemar Beckford – 2: 0.
We also note that the “reggae guys” took first place in the CONCAAF Nations League last year, earning a promotion in class, moving from Group B to Group A.
The national teams met each other only once. Then, in October 2017, the Saudis celebrated the success – 5: 2;
Jamaica’s unbeaten streak is seven matches in a row (six wins and one draw).
Any outcome of the fight will not be surprising, even though the hosts look like favorites on paper. You need to understand that the quality of the game will leave much to be desired, because the players of the national teams have not played together for a very long time. Therefore, in such a situation, it makes sense to consider a bet on the lower total.
Our forecast is the total under (2.5) goals with the odds of 1.78 from the bookmaker 1xBet.
