Uzbekistan vs China by Sors
Uzbekistan: Lobanov – Tukhtakhodjaev, Shukurov, Krimets, Denisov – Rashidov, Haydarov, Djeparov, Ahmedov, Shomurodov – Sergeev
China: Chao – Hang, Chengdong, Xiaoting, Zhipeng – Xizhe, Hai, Xi, Bowen, Lei – Lin
Uzbekistan suffered its first defeat in Group A last Wednesday (0-1 at home against Iran), but the hosts are still in a good position in the race for the top two spots, thanks to those two wins against Syria (1-0/home) and Qatar (1-0/away) in the previous two rounds.
In the matter of fact, Uzbekistan rarely makes mistakes at home, where the hosts have recorded eight victories in nine games over the past twelve months (8-0-1 12/3), five of them in official matches against Yemen (1-0), North Korea (3-1), Philippines (1-0), Bahrain (1-0) and Syria (1-0).
Anzur Ismailov (d / 79+2) and Alexander Geynrikh (f / 91+31) will miss this match due to suspensions, but Odil Ahmedov (m / 79+15) and Server Djeparov (m / 119+25) are fit to play against China.
China reached this stage after winning five of their eight games in the previous round (5-2-1 27/1), but even then this team didn’t impress much, as four of those five victories came against pretty mediocre teams like Bhutan (12-0/6-0) and Maldives (4-0/3-0).
It’s obvious that China is experiencing problems in this group, as the guests won just one point from the previous three rounds (0-1-2 2/4) and have only theoretical chances to finish at Top 3.Zhang Linpeng (d / 53+5) is unavailable due to suspension.
I think that Uzbekistan will manage to win three points from this match.
