Afghanistan vs Qatar Preview, Possible Lineups & Predictions

Let us see some predictions as well as the preview of professional experts about Afghanistan vs Qatar - the match in the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualification (AFC).

Afghanistan vs Qatar match information

Time: 22:00 (GMT+8) on November 19th

Venue: Central Republican Stadium

Competition: 2022 FIFA World Cup qualification (AFC)

In theory, Afghanistan is the home team, but they have to play at Tajikistan because of civil war. Compared to Qatar, Afghanistan is completely weaker in both team strength as well as performance. While Qatar is dominating Group E with 4 undefeated matches, Afghanistan has just 4 points at third position. Consequently, they cannot tackle Qatar to have another victory at the World Cup Qualification.

As the host country of World Cup 2022, in theory, Qatar does not have to attend the qualification round. However, it also serves as the second round of 2023 AFC Asian Cup qualification, so they still play. Currently, they have 10 points with 3 winning matches. The only team which could draw Qatar in qualification round was India, but it was the game where Qatari players played at their lower level.

If Qatar is serious in the match against Afghanistan, it will be very easy for them to defeat the opponent. In some cases, their players can score 4 to 5 goals. On the other hand, the Afghanistan team is too weak to resist Qatari players having impressive form. For example, when two teams faced each other in the first match, Qatar easily defeated Afghanistan by 6-0. The same score can happen again.

Afghanistan vs Qatar possible lineups:

Afghanistan: Ovays Azizi, Hassan Amin, Haroon Fakhruddin Amiri, Milad Intezar, Zelfy Nazary, Sharif Muhammad, Noor Husin, Farshad Noor, Adam Najem, Norlla Amiri, Omran Haydari.

Qatar: Saad Al Sheeb, Pedro Miguel Correia, Bassam Al Rawi, Tarek Salman, Abdelkarim Hassan, Salem Al Hajri, Hasan Al Haydos , Boualem Khoukhi, Karim Boudiaf, Akram Afif, Almoez Ali.
