Jordan and Vietnam are playing each other for just the fourth time in history

Jordan and Vietnam clash in an international friendly in Dubai as both teams prepare for the continuation of the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers in Asia.

Both sides are very much in the race to advance into the next round of the qualifying phase and will use this opportunity to prepare ahead of the last few games.

The Middle Eastern outfit are third in Group B with 10 points, level with second-placed Kuwait. Jordan have a relatively inferior goal difference and will face Kuwait and runaway leaders Australia in their final two matches.

To make matters worse, Vital Borkelmans' side were humiliated 5-1 by UAE in their last friendly game and need a big performance this weekend.

Meanwhile, the Golden Star Warriors play their first match since November 2019, and will look to blow away the cobwebs before resuming their qualifying phase.

They're unbeaten in five games so far, winning three times and leading Group G by two points over second-placed Malaysia.

Jordan vs Vietnam Head-To-Head

There have only been three clashes between the sides and all have come since 2017.

While neither side have won inside 90 minutes, Vietnam defeated Jordan on penalties in the 2019 Asia Cup following a 1-1 draw in normal time.

Jordan vs Vietnam Prediction

Both sides may start the match strongly but plenty of chops and changes at the break will puncture most of the momentum.

The sides have never won against each other inside 90 minutes and we're predicting that trend to continue with another draw.

Prediction: Jordan 2-2 Vietnam
