Australia heads into this match motivated after a 0-3 win at Kuwait, adding their first win in this qualifying round of the 2022 World Cup: the team's goals were signed by Mooy and Leckie (2).

Betting suggestion:

The Australian team have a great advantage for this game, not only for playing with the support of their fans, but for presenting great individual values that can decide the match at any moment. On the other hand, Nepal should take the field with a defensive strategy, but without much success. Thus, we expect Australia to come into play with great offensive propensity, making betting in favor of the '1.5 More Goals in the 1st Half' market a good option.
