Saudi Arabia vs Tajikistan AFC U23 2024 Predictions & TV Showtimes

tirto.id – The prediction for Saudi Arabia vs Tajikistan in the 2024 AFC U23 Asian Cup Group C match points to the defending champion winning. The match at the Khalifa International Stadium, Al Rayyan, Qatar, will be played on Wednesday, April 17 2024, at 01.00 WIB. The live broadcast of Saudi Arabia vs Tajikistan in the 2024 U23 Asian Cup will be broadcast via RCTI and Vision+ (Soccer Channel and Sportstars 4 channels).

Saudi Arabia is the top team in Group C. The defending champion factor is the reason why the team coached by Saad Al-Shehri is the favorite to be the best in Group C.

However, Saudi Arabia cannot underestimate their opponents. Apart from Tajikistan, two other countries in Group C, Iraq and Thailand, could also increase competition.

Saudi Arabia vs Tajikistan AFC U23 2024 Prediction

Group C of the 2024 U23 Asian Cup deserves to be named one of the hell groups. In this group, there are two countries that have been champions, namely Saudi Arabia and Iraq. The same situation occurred in Group B because there were Japan and South Korea who had both won.

However, if you look at overall performance, Saudi Arabia can be said to be the most successful in Asia at U23 level. Apart from winning once, they also won two runner-up titles in the AFC U23 Asian Cup.

Saudi Arabia won last year after beating Uzbekistan 2-0 in Tashkent, Uzbekistan. They won two runner-up titles in 2013 when they lost to Iraq and in 2020 when they lost to South Korea.

Therefore, it is not surprising that Saudi Arabia and Iraq are the favorites in Group C. It is interesting because if you look at the schedule, Saudi Arabia and Iraq can meet in the group phase if they both already hold tickets to qualify for the quarter-finals. Because, the two countries will only meet on matchday 3 of the group.

Before that, Saudi Arabia must first focus on facing Tajikistan in the opening match. The good news is that Al-Shehri is bringing many of his best players to the event in Qatar 2024.

In fact, there are four Saudi Arabia U23 players currently playing in the 2024 Asian Cup. They are Eid Al-Muwallad, Faisal Al-Ghamdi, Rayane Hamidou, and Abdullah Radif. However, at that time the four of them had different fates under the tutelage of coach Roberto Mancini.

Of the three, only Hamidou did not get playing minutes. Al-Muwallad played once as a substitute in the round of 16 against South Korea. Radif always plays in four matches, and Al-Ghamdi plays three matches.

Radif was listed as a starter once and came on as a substitute three times. Al-Ghamdi started once and came off the bench twice. Al-Ghamdi even scored one goal against Kyrgyzstan.

Of course, Tajikistan must be wary of the capabilities of the Saudi Arabian squad. Moreover, among the Group C contestants, they had the least experience. Tajikistan has only qualified for the U23 Asian Cup once in 2022 and was stopped in the group stage.

Saudi Arabia vs Tajikistan Player Lineup Prediction

Radif, Al-Ghamdi, Al-Muwallad, and Hamidou could be the core of Saudi Arabia U23’s strength. Apart from them there are other top players such as Mohammed Maran, Haitham Asiri, and Saad Al-Nasser.
