India vs Qatar Predictions

India give up home advantage with the remaining qualifiers taking place in Doha. That plays into the hands of Qatar, who can record a sixth win from seven qualifiers.

Having conceded just one goal all campaign, Qatar are tipped to win to nil.

  • India are winless in 13 of their 14 international matches (all competitions).
  • Qatar have won 3 of their last 4 matches (all competitions).
  • Qatar have won 5 of their 6 matches (World Cup Qualifying).
  • Qatar have kept clean sheets in 5 of their 6 matches (World Cup Qualifying).

Head to Head

The nations have met four times previously with Qatar leading the head to head 2-1. 

The most recent meeting ended in a 0-0 draw during 2022 World Cup qualifying when the sides met in September 2019.

Qatar had 28 goal attempts and 13 shots on target, but couldn't break the deadlock in a one-sided contest.

India Form

India have collected three points from five qualifiers so far, going winless and already missing out of a place in the third phase of qualifying.

Igor Stimac's side lost their opening game 2-1 at home to Oman before drawing three in a row.

India earned points from stalemates with Qatar (0-0), Bangladesh (1-1) and Afghanistan (1-1). A 1-0 defeat to Oman followed.

Since then, India have played two friendlies - a 1-1 draw with Oman and a 6-0 loss to United Arab Emirates in March.
