Australia and Oman will meet at the Khalifa International Stadium in Qatar in the third round of the AFC FIFA World Cup qualifiers. 

The Socceroos are in top form and have barely conceded in recent matches. I’m tipping Australia to win and BTTS No with over 2.5 goals.

Australia have won their last six World Cup qualifiers and sit atop of Group B with a full six points from two matches. 

The Socceroos returned to action with a convincing 3-0 win over China in Doha behind goals from Awer Mabil, Martin Boyle and Mitchell Duke. They next defeated Vietnam 1-0 in difficult conditions in Hanoi with Rhyan Grant netting the match's only goal. 

Defender Brad Smith was omitted from the squad against Oman due to coronavirus, while forward Chris Ikonomidis was added to the squad.

Oman opened this next round of qualifiers with a shock 1-0 victory over Japan away from home. An 88th minute goal from forward Abdallah Al-Sabhi proved the difference. 

Though celebrations were short lived as they suffered a 1-0 defeat at home to Saudi Arabia in their next match.

Australia have a 4-1 record against Oman with three draws in eight appearance.

Verdict

Australia are in great recent form and have a strong record against Oman. I’m tipping over 2.5 goals in this match.
