Bangladesh and India have yet to win a game in the AFC World Cup qualifiers. I don’t see that changing in Doha with under 2.5 goals and a draw predicted.
- Bangladesh have drawn 2 of their last 3 matches (all competitions).
- Bangladesh have seen under 2.5 goals in 6 of their last 8 matches (World Cup qualifiers).
- Bangladesh have seen BTTS in their last 6 matches against India (all competitions).
- Bangladesh have drawn last 4 matches against India (all competitions).
- India have drawn 5 of their last 9 matches (all competitions).
- India have seen under 2.5 goals in their last 5 matches (World Cup qualifiers).
Head to Head
Bangladesh have a 2-0 advantage against India with 4 draws in 6 matches.
The last four meetings have all been draws, including a 1-1 draw in the latest encounter in 2019.
Bangladesh sit bottom of Group E in the AFC World Cup qualifiers. They have two draws and four defeats from six games, scoring just three goals.
Jamie Day’s side lost 5-0 against Qatar in December 2020.
The Bengal Tigers returned to action with a 1-1 draw against Afghanistan on Thursday. They looked to be headed towards defeat before Topu Barman equalised in the 84th minute.
