AUS vs KUW Dream11 Tips for Australia vs Kuwait World Cup Qualifiers 3 June

Share

AUS vs KUW Dream11: Australia takes on Kuwait in a crunch World Cup Qualifiers game in Group B. Both sides occupy the spots for qualification to the next round, although the home side has a game in hand. Kuwait also risks losing out their spot to Jordan who is level on points with them which makes it a must-win game for them. However, the away side are on a 3-game losing streak which makes it far from the ideal position, going into this game. On the flip side, Australia has won each of their last 4 games including convincing 5-0 and 7-1 wins over Nepal and Chinese Taipei.

Fantasy Football Tips

Captain Options

Jamie Maclaren – Jamie Maclaren has had a stunning season with Melbourne City FC as they lead the A-League table. He has scored 25 goals and provided 5 assists in 23 starts all season. He has also had 52 shots on target and created 27 chances as well.

Nikita Rukavytsya – The 33-year-old has been great all season. Playing in the Israeli league, he has 1 goal and 1 assist in all of his last 4 Europa League qualifiers games including against Tottenham Hotspur.

Differential Pick

Matthew Ryan – The Australian has conceded just 1 goal in 4 games this season which is mostly down to the experience of Matt Ryan. The Arsenal and former Brighton Hove Albion goalkeeper has played football at the highest level and will look to organize the defence against Kuwait. It will be tough to get past him in this WCQ.

AUS vs KUW Dream11 Team

Goalkeeper – Ryan
Defenders – Degenek, Behich, Al Reshidi, Al-Hajeri
Midfielders – Irvine, Al Salama, Ali Mohsin
Forwards – Leckie, Maclaren (C), Rukavytsya (VC)

Likely Winner:

The AUS vs KUW Today Match Prediction should be a win for the Aussies. They have a 2-point lead in the league with a game in hand. However, Kuwait won’t be an easy side to beat, having won 3 of their 5 games, scoring 17 times and conceding thrice. Australia, on the other hand, has conceded just once and scored 16 times, while winning all their games. They also have the better player despite Aaron Mooy’s absence. Australia will look to carry on with their 4-game winning streak to add another one to Kuwait’s 3-game losing streak.
