The Socceroos will look to strengthen their position in Group B of the AFC 2022 World Cup Qualifiers this Thursday night as they host Vietnam at AAMI Park in Melbourne.

Australia’s position in the AFC standings has dropped slightly following consecutive draws against Saudi Arabia and China, but this is the perfect opportunity for the men’s national squad to rise.

Vietnam is the only team in the third round of the AFC qualifiers yet to register a victory, as it has lost each of its last six outings.

Socceroos coach Graham Arnold has named an exciting batch of players for Australia’s next two contests against Vietnam and Oman, including emerging talents such as Joel King, Marco Tilio and Kye Rowles.

These two countries faced off back in September last year, which resulted in a 1-0 away victory to Australia in which Rhyan Grant was the solo goalscorer.

The Socceroos have been very impressive on home soil in recent times, so it is no surprise to see soccer bookmakers install them as short-priced favourites for this clash.

Australia vs Vietnam betting predictions

Anytime goalscorer: Mitchell Duke
With seven goals in just 15 outings for Australia, Mitchell Duke is a regular on the scoresheet. Vietnam has conceded 12 goals in just six matches thus far in round three of World Cup Qualifying, the most of any side across both AFC groups. Duke was the lone scorer for the Socceroos in their most recent outing against China, while he also finished with a goal in Australia’s 3-1 win against Oman.

Mitchell Duke anytime goalscorer


Total goals: Over 3.5
Three of Vietnam’s six matches during round three of the World Cup Qualifiers have exceeded four goals, as the sub-par defensive unit simply cannot keep up with the superior squads in the pool. We are predicting another high-scoring affair in Melbourne, as we think the Socceroos will put on a show for the local fans.

Over 3.5 goals


Same game multi: 3 legs @ $3.75
We are tipping the Aussies to win against Vietnam in a high-scoring match which should provide enough opportunities for Mitchell Duke to score his eighth goal in a Socceroos uniform.
