Singapore take on the visitors Tajikistan in a friendly international match. The match will be played on Friday, September 8th.
Singapore isn't exactly a middle-of-the-road team in Asian football. The same can be said for Tajikistan. This year, Singapore have played four friendly matches with relatively decent results. They had three draws against opponents like the Solomon Islands, Papua New Guinea, and Hong Kong. They managed to defeat Macao. Naturally, this team should not be taken seriously in any Asian qualification, and they will be considered outsiders. But for this particular match, they are up against Tajikistan. The bookmakers seem to have placed too much faith in the away team based on the odds. However, there isn't much reason for that.

Tajikistan hasn't managed to secure any victories this year, and it's far from certain that they will find their footing against their upcoming opponent. While Tajikistan has slightly improved their results in recent times, it's not by much. This year, they've had three draws and two losses. Their opponents were not the toughest, including Oman and Turkmenistan, and it's hard to consider them formidable opponents. They even lost to Uzbekistan with a score of 1-5. The potential for Tajikistan's national team is certainly limited, and even in a battle against Singapore, it's difficult to label them as clear favorites. This match can be seen as a clash between equals.
Both teams are not considered top-tier Asian football teams, so designating a clear favorite here isn't easy. Therefore, it's wise to consider a betting option that covers various possible scenarios. In this match, a favorable bet would be a handicap in favor of Singapore. I believe that if the guests win here, it will likely be by a narrow margin. My bet is Singapore with a (+1) handicap.
Prediction for the match: Singapore to win with +1.0 handicap.
