Oman entertain Australia at the Sultan Qaboos Sports Complex in their 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifying fixture on Tuesday.

Australia resumed their qualifying campaign with a resounding 4-0 win over Vietnam, as they kept the pressure on second-placed Japan. Saudi Arabia are expected to secure top spot in Group B, so Australia need to avoid dropping points if they are to finish above Japan in the standings.

Oman suffered a narrow 1-0 defeat at Saudi Arabia in their previous outing and trail the third-placed visitors by seven points, thus the odds of them making it into the finals in the summer are slim.

Oman vs Australia Prediction

Australia are the top-scoring side in the group and scored four goals against Vietnam on Thursday. Oman, on the other hand, have failed to score in their last two games.

There is a notable quality gap in the squad between the two sides and Australia also seem to be in good touch at the moment. The Socceroos should take home the three points from the game.

Prediction: Oman 1-2 Australia
