Vietnam and Oman clash at the Mỹ Đình National Stadium in Hanoi on Thursday for their next installment of the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers.

With both teams already eliminated from the race, it's essentially a dead rubber.

The Golden Star Warriors are rock bottom in Group B with just one win and three points in the bag from eight games.

That victory, ironically, came in just their last game - a stunning 3-1 defeat of China to end their miserable run and get some points on the board at last.

Oman have fared relatively better with two wins and eight points, but alas, it wasn't enough, and they sit in fourth place of the standings.

Yet, the Reds put up a spirited performance against heavyweights Australia in their last outing, fighting back twice in the match to secure a 2-2 draw.

The sides have clashed only thrice in history, with Oman winning on each occasion.

In the October reverse of this qualifying campaign, the Reds secured a 3-1 win on home soil.

Vietnam vs Oman Prediction

With very little on the line, this could go either way.

However, the Reds still seem to have a relatively better squad and should be able to come away with a narrow win.

Prediction: Vietnam 1-2 Oman
