It’s been a long week since we’ve checked with the AFC’s 2019 Asian Cup. Our last update was after Match Day 5 and unfortunately our best bets did not come through for Match Day 6. Since then, the favorites have dominated the tournament with little left to chance. With the end of Match Day 12, let’s take a look at the group standings and remaining fixtures as we prep for the knockout rounds beginning in five days.
Match Day 4 was a continuation of a return to normal for the favorites. With two matches on the docket, the opening fixture proved to be anxiety ridden for fans of Iraq. The second match could not have gone more according to script for Saudi Arabia.
