Australia are overwhelming favourites to make it three wins from three to start their 2022 World Cup qualifying campaign when they take on minnows Chinese Taipei in Kaohsiung on Tuesday night.

Chinese Taipei vs Australia kicks off at 10.40pm AEDT at Kaohsiung National Stadium. The game will be broadcast live on Fox Sports, SBS Viceland and Kayo Sports in Australia.

Prediction

Match Preview


It’s been a perfect start for the Socceroos on their road to the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, beating Kuwait 3-0 away before a comfortable 5-0 dispatch of Nepal in Canberra last week.

However, in saying that, you can’t take much away from those victories, and the same problems that have plagued the Socceroos for the last five years or so are still present - and that’s being ruthless in front of goal.

Jamie Maclaren bagged his first international hat-trick against Nepal, but the search goes on for the Socceroos to find an out-and-out No. 9 that is consistently a threat in front of goal.



It was a good showing from Maclaren, but he needs to do the same away from home against another low-ranked team in order to prove he’s on the right path.

You can only beat who’s in front of you, and so far the Socceroos have been flawless on paper, scoring eight goals and conceding zero.

They will be expected to maintain that record against Chinese Taipei, who are bottom of Group B after two games, losing 2-1 to Jordan and 2-0 to Nepal.

Coached by Louis Lancaster - the man who moulded the talent of current Borussia Dortmund star Jadon Sancho when he was part of the Watford youth program - Chinese Taipei have absolutely nothing to lose, but they undoubtedly will do well to keep the score close.
