In the case of Syria, this is their 2nd friendly of the year, after the previous friendly against Iraq. In the last 3 years there is only record of 2 direct confrontations between these two teams: one on 10-01-2019, which ended in a victory over Jordan by (2-0), and another more recent on 03-26-2015, that ended in a victory for Syria by (0-1). Particular attention is required for the home / away condition, since both teams present significantly different results at home and abroad.
This will be the first friendly match of the year for the home team, who played 9 last year. In the previous 5 the following results were recorded: Jordan (0-1) Kyrgyzstan, Jordan (1-1) Saudi Arabia, Jordan (2-1) India, Croatia (2-1) Jordan and Albania (0-0) Jordan. This is a team that usually makes good use of the home advantage, stronger with the help of its supporters, since in the last 30 matches they register 2 wins, 9 draws and 4 losses in away matches, with 8 goals scored and 11 conceded; against 8 wins, 5 draws and 2 losses at their stadium, with 28 goals scored and 8 conceded. In the last match they played, for the Asian Cup, they lost to Vietnam at home by (2-4), in the shoot-off on penalties. In the last 10 home matches Jordan has a record of 4 wins, 3 draws and 3 losses.
Jordan comes to this game unmotivated, after a defeat, on penalties, against Vietnam, in a game to count for the knockout stages of the Asian Cup. The greatest valence of the home team is in the capacity that demonstrates to lead their offensive attacks through fast transitions. The far right Musa Al-Taamari is responsible for putting the opponent’s defensive sense, being very fast and strong in the transport of the ball for the attack. The Vital Borkemans coach can count on all his players.
The visiting team played their 2nd friendly of the year, after having faced Iraq, in a match that ended with the score: Iraq (1-0) Syria. This is a team that usually makes good use of the home advantage, stronger with the help of its supporters, since in the last 30 matches they register 4 wins, 6 draws and 5 losses in away matches, with 15 goals scored and 18 conceded; against 7 wins, 6 draws and 2 losses at their stadium, with 26 goals scored and 11 conceded. In the last 10 games played away for all competitions, the Syria won 3, drew 2 and lost 5. The team allowed goals to the opponent in 7 of the last 10 matches, so there are defensive processes that need improvement.
The selection of Syria enters this unmotivated party, after a rebuff, by 1-0, against Iraq, in a friendly game. We emphasize that the Syrians record three defeats in a row. The striker Omar Al-Soma, player of Al Ahli Jeddah, is responsible for putting the adversary’s defenses into meaning, his highest quality being the finalization. The technician Fajr Ibrahim will be able to count on all his players, that is to say, we believe that he will act in the maximum force.
