Palestine – Jordan Prediction & Picks (15.01.2019)


Palestine – Jordan SOCCER PICKS

Interesting quota for more cultural and political issues than for the sporting aspect.

Jordan is mathematically group leader because the tiebreaker criteria first are the results between the teams involved in the draw. In this sense, Australia lost to Jordan 0-1 and is the only team that can reach the Jordanians. For this reason, whatever happens in this match, Jordan will be the leader.

– Palestine is not a very weak selection as its name could indicate. It is a humble team, it is true, but with professional players many of them Chileans with Palestinian ancestors who decided to get involved in this selection. Therefore, it is a team that can win this match if the right conditions are met, even if starting is not a favorite under any circumstances.

– Key question: They are two sister nations. Palestine and Jordan are historically intimately united. Jordan has been the quintessential destination of Palestine refugees throughout its history. For this reason, a good percentage (between a quarter and a third) of the Jordanian population has ancestors, origins or family in Palestine. That is why Palestine is the second team of the Jordanians. Even more: in the Jordanian team there are several players who were born in Palestine or whose parents did it and to be exact, a good number of them belong to al-Wehdat, a Jordanian league club formed in a Palestinian refugee camp and very linked to the neighboring country.

– Therefore, be careful because Palestine is a worse team, but presumably Jordan will be benevolent with its brothers who have a historic opportunity to qualify. Also, if Palestine qualifies Australia or Syria (or both) they would go home so Jordan would get practical benefits from this result.
