Uzbekistan reached the top of the group D after their victory over Singapore

Despite the home advantage, Singapore can not make a surprise against Uzbekistan due to the class difference.

Immediately after the opening whistle was raised, the away team players advanced to attack. The pressure constantly created, goalkeeper Mahbud constantly had to save Singapore. However, what comes must also come. 15 minutes, from a free kick on the left-wing, captain Akhmedov shot straight into Singapore. The ball sank so goalkeeper Mahbud could not reflect. The score was opened for Uzbekistan.

After the goal, Singapore tried to push the line up to regain the game and look for an equalizer. They mostly use the ball, but it does not work. It seems that the first half will end with a score of 1-0 in Uzbekistan, then suddenly comes in extra time. From the free-kick situation on the right-wing, the ball was suspended into the penalty area of ​​Uzbekistan, striker No. 9 - Fandi Ahmad turned high and headed to score the equalizer for Singapore. The first half ended with a score of 1-1.

At the beginning of the second half, the Uzbekistan visitors re-established their lead. In the 51st minute, striker Shomurodov headed high after a free-kick by Sayfiyev scored to make the score 2-1. Only 2 minutes later, striker No. 14 continued to have the opportunity to score when passing goalkeepers of Singapore. Only regret that the final phase of the striker missed the goal.

In the following minutes, Uzbekistan kept pushing to find the next goal. Many opportunities were created and the third goal came for them in the 90 + 2 minute. At the end of the match, Uzbekistan won 3-1 against Singapore.

With this victory, Uzbekistan rose to the top of Group D with 6 points. Meanwhile, Singapore temporarily fell to 3rd place in the rankings.

After 3 matches in Group D, Singapore got 4 points, this is a very good start for the representative of Southeast Asia, whether this is the true strength of the host or Singapore's lucky time stop?

At the beginning of the draw with Yemen was equal, Singapore won Palestine with a score of 2-1 right at home. But in the last match, Singapore had to receive a very strong slap from Saudi Arabia with a 0-3 loss. This defeat not only brought Singapore back to the ground but also showed that they still did not have enough strength to create more surprises. And once again, the grave is skeptical of their ability to score in this Uzbekistan reception.

On the other side of the pitch after the defeat to Palestine in the first round, very quickly Uzbekistan regained their style with a 5-0 destruction to Yemen. In Group D, besides Saudi Arabia, the most highly rated, the second place is Uzbekistan. With the current performance, Uzbekistan is very confident to play Singapore right away.

Uzbekistan's international form has been extremely stable recently, with only 1 of their last 5 matches losing. Even Uzbekistan beat strong opponents like South Korea or Iraq.

Most likely, on the trip to the Singapore National Stadium, Odil Ahmedov and his teammates will have the opportunity to win 3 points before Singapore.
