Ahead of their big World Cup play-off tie with Australia in Qatar next week, The UAE plays host to Gambia for an international friendly on Sunday. 

Betting tips UAE vs Gambia

Hosts UAE, currently ranked 69th in the FIFA rankings start as favourites against their 149th ranked opponents but a tight contest should be expected considering both sides recent form in the goal markets.

UAE enter this friendly fixture having seen under 2.5 goals scored in 11 of their last 14 matches including each of their last 4. Gambia, for their part, have also seen under 2.5 goals scored in 12 of their last 13 international fixtures.

Formwise, UAE picked up a surprise one-goal win against South Korea last time out while Gambia suffered a narrow 1:0 defeat in their friendly match against Kosovo. It is certainly worth noting that Gambia have seen under 2.5 goals scored in 14 of their last 15 international friendly matches since 2012.

With a huge match against Australia to come next week, the UAE will likely use this fixture as an opportunity to build up cohesion ahead of their big FIFA World Cup qualifying tie.

Ultimately, given recent form and their considerable advantage in the world rankings, UAE should probably be expected to come out on top but goal chasers should look elsewhere with this fixture favoured to go under 2.5 goals with the Gambians always proving a tough nut to crack.

As with any friendly fixture, we always suggest low stakes and given the nature of this match-up, we would very much continue that recommendation here but a low-scoring occasion does look a likely outcome in Dubai.
