UAE sit on top of group A in the AFC Asian Cup 2019 as of now, but they will need to avoid defeat against Thailand to ensure qualification. For Thailand, on the other hand, a victory would do very nicely.
The difference between table-toppers UAE and bottom-dwellers Bahrain is just three points and all four teams still have a chance to qualify. The equation for the game between UAE and Thailand is quite simple: a win, for any team, seals their spot in the next round.
It’s been a rough start for the hosts in their 2019 Asian Cup campaign given their performance in the first two matches. While they barely scraped a tie in the opener against Bahrain, the squad struggled against India a few nights ago, yet managed to score two and earn their first win in the lackluster performance.
Thailand has not performed well at the Asian Cup so far. A very poor performance in the second half vs India resulted in a 1 – 4 loss and leaving Thai football fans in shock. However, they manage to keep their tournament alive with a victory against Bahrain.
For the first time ever, twenty-four nations will compete in the pan-Asian competition instead of the usual sixteen. As such two additional groups have been added and the two best teams from each group and the four best third-placed teams will progress in the tournament.
