Team Analysis
The Indonesian national team, despite being amongst the leading teams of the Asian Football Confederation, has never reached the finals of the World Cup. Indonesia's home matches are held at Bung Karno Stadium in Jakarta, making the upcoming match critical for a confident advance to the next qualification stage. However, if Indonesia loses, the Vietnamese team could potentially catch up, posing a risk of dismissal from the group.

On the other side, Iraq has already guaranteed its place in the next qualifying round, scoring a maximum of 12 points in four matches. The team, which has never reached the World Cup final, usually lacks stamina and strong-willed qualities in decisive games. Their current selection shows good attacking football, with 12 goals scored and only one missed. In the upcoming home match, the team will perform its best but won't force events, instead patiently waiting for opponents' mistakes before counterattacking.

This season, the teams have met twice, once at the Asian Cup and once at the first match of the World Cup Qualification. Iraq proved to be stronger on both occasions, both in terms of gameplay and scores. Interestingly, both teams managed to distinguish themselves in each meeting.

Odds Analysis
The match will clearly be a high-stakes one for Indonesia, with an essential home victory imperative against an Iraq team already qualified for the subsequent round. Considering past performance, there's a high chance of a match where both teams score. With Iraq often serving 8-9 corners in a game compared to Indonesia's 3-4, a prediction of at least 8 corners is quite plausible. Given recent meetings and the attacking strategies used by both teams, a score of more than two goals in the match seems probable, with odds of 1.94. However, the most likely scenario seems to be a match wherein Indonesia wins with a handicap of +0.5 in each with odds of 1.75.

Pick: Over 2.5 goals
