MATCH ANALYSIS;

Manchester United’s 2-1 defeat at Wolves on Apr 2 saw them lose ground on the Premier League (PL) top four. It marked what was (as of Apr 9) their third game in succession to yield that scoreline and see one team score consecutive match goals.

United’s PL home form alone offers no respite in that regard either, with just one of their last nine league matches here seeing them keep a clean sheet. In each of the last three home PL games where the ‘Red Devils’ have conceded, their opponent on the day has scored in the 75th minute or later.

The home fans in attendance will be pleased to note that West Ham’s last four matches (W1, L3) have seen them concede 2+ goals, with each seeing them trail by a two-goal margin at one point, and all the defeats ending 2-0. All four games also saw West Ham lose the first half.

Worse yet, after a run of three successive PL away wins in December, West Ham have now taken just a single point from the last 21 available on the road (D1, L6). All of the six defeats in that sequence have yielded a blank for West Ham.

Players to watch: Respectively, each of Marcus Rashford and Romelu Lukaku’s last three home league goals for United have arrived in the first and second half.

With a brace at Southampton (Dec 27), Felipe Anderson remains the last West Ham man to score in an away league match from open play.

Stat attack: Manchester United last suffered a league double of defeats against West Ham back in 2006/07.
West Ham’s last two away PL games have seen them lose the first half 1-0.

Overall, five of West Ham’s last seven matches have seen them concede first.

Arsenal vs Napoli squad analysis & prediction

Arsenal vs  Napoli  squad analysis & prediction

MATCH ANALYSIS

Arsenal are unbeaten in eight Europa League (EL) matches at the Emirates Stadium, with the Gunners’ sole home defeat in their entire history of post-2009 EL participation being an inconsequential 2-1 reverse to Östersunds FK back in February 2018.

The ‘Gunners’ have emerged victorious with a clean sheet in their last three EL outings here, winning the first half 2-0 and the second 1-0 twice in a row.

Even if Arsenal are to concede first against Napoli, a record of  in EL home matches where they have conceded first bodes well, with both wins yielding a 3-1 scoreline.

Napoli arrive in London with a chequered away record in this season’s EL, winning once and losing once – both times by a 3-1 scoreline.

Given that, there is potential relevance in the fact that the visitors’ last four away trips (in all competitions) have produced over 1.5 goals and seen the first two match goals shared equally.

There should be no lack of action at the start though, with three of Napoli’s four EL games this year seeing them score inside the first 15 minutes of play. Additionally, three of their last four EL away goals (in 2019 alone) have arrived inside the first half-hour.

Players to watch: Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was the first and last Arsenal scorer in their most recent EL game here.

Both legs of the previous round saw Napoli’s Arkadiusz Milik score the opening goal for his team inside the first 15 minutes.

Stat attack: Each of Arsenal’s last four competitive home games have seen them win both halves.

Across all competitions and venues, Arsenal have scored first in seven of their last nine matches.

Each of Napoli’s last six games have seen both teams score.

UAE vs Thailand Sportpesa Tips
AFC Asian Cup
Date: Monday, 14th January 2019
Kick-off at 16.00 UK/ 17.00 CET
Venue: Hazza bin Zayed Stadium (Al Ain).

The White took full advantage of the crowd support and has had a good tournament so far. They have remained unbeaten after the first two match-days came to a close.

It’s true that they have not yet assured themselves of a place in the latter stages of the competition, but they have got a favorable draw to count on.

The War Elephants were defeated by a hungry Indian team, who were eager to prove themselves to the world stage.

Four goals went past the Thailand backline, and the team morale has likely taken a hit. On top of that, they face the uphill task of going against the tournament hosts in their last group stage game.

Fans can treat themselves to a football treat as it is a do-or-die stage for both sides. Asian football is on the rise, and matches like these ones will do a world of good in getting the continent what it deserves.

It will take quite some time, but the passionate fans of this region dream of a day when they rule the world of this sport along with Latin America and Europe.

UAE vs Thailand Head-to-head sportpesa games analysis: (h2h)

  • Both teams got on the scoresheet in the last three h2h matches in a row.
  • Alberto Zaccheroni’s men have only failed once to score against this opponent.
  • The White kept clean sheets in two of their last three games against the War Elephants.
  • The teams hosting the match has never once failed to find the net.

UAE vs Thailand Sportpesa Prediction

The Arab nation has a 100% winning record against Sirisak Yodyardthai’s men, at home. Moreover, the hosts kept clean sheets in two of their last three h2h home appearances. Considering that U.A.E has the crowd behind them, and with the historical record backing the team, we can expect a home win.

It was quite unfortunate that the Changsuek had to face a tough loss in their opener against India. The group conceded four goals and it took the life out of the team that came into the competition with quite some hopes.

The team captained by Ismail Matar needs just a draw to ensure progress, but a win will give them the group champions tag. As a comparatively easier match awaits the topper of the group in the next stage, U.A.E should go for a win against this weaker rival.

The White will not take risks and jeopardize what they have achieved till now, and in all probability, we can expect them to keep a clean sheet.
