Arabian Gulf Cup
Group B Matchday 1 of 3
Kuwait vs Qatar
Al-Minaa Olympic Stadium, Basra, Iraq
In the scheduled fixture of the Arabian Gulf Cup 2023, Kuwait will be playing its opening game against Qatar. Qatar is coming of a debut World Cup performance, which wasn’t up to the mark but gave them ample confidence. If we talk about the Arabian Gulf Cup, then Kuwait stands as the most successful country with 10 wins. However, its past run in 2019 wasn’t quite spectacular, as it finished at the bottom of its group standings. Qatar has now improved itself courtesy of the FIFA World Cup hosting. If we compare the two, Qatar is likely to have odds in its favor, which is why they will be walking in as the favorites.Receive Your Registration Bonus!
Kuwait - The Most Successful Team of the Arabian Gulf Cup (LWLLD)
Going in the contest, Kuwait is coming off a thrashing defeat against Jordan (3-0) and a win previously against Nepal (1-4). Among the top performers for Kuwait include Fahad Al Rashidi, Yousef Nasser, and Mubarak Al Faneni. With Kuwait playing its home game, it hasn’t won a single home fixture in the last 4 games played, which is quite shocking. In 2022, Kuwait’s win percentage was 40% as it managed to win just 4 games out of the 10 played.
Qatar - Quite Improved and Dynamic as a Unit (LLLWW)
Going in the contest, Qatar is coming off a fresh World Cup campaign, which doesn’t feature any win against the top teams of the competition, but a flair of confidence and professionalism. Qatar has managed to bag the runner’s spot for the Arabian Cup four times in the past, and now it will be looking forward to winning the title. If we talk about Qatar’s head-to-head dominance over Kuwait, it has managed to win thrice, with a game ending in a draw. After a professional World Cup campaign, we can expect Qatar to deliver according to the standards and register a handsome win.
