Iraq vs Yemen Preview, Possible Lineups & Predictions

Let us see some predictions as well as the previews of professional experts about Iraq vs Yemen - the match in the 2019 Gulf Cup.

Iraq vs Yemen match information

Time: 22:30 (GMT+8) on December 2nd

Venue: Abdullah bin Khalifa Stadium

‎‎Competition: 2019 Gulf Cup

Thanks to back-to-back winning matches against Qatar and UAE, Iraq became the first team advancing to semi-finals. But the last match in the group stage will be a chance for them to test new tactics as well as gain more confident before the knock-out stage.

Compared to Yemen, it seems that Iraqi players will have a simple game. They have not only more impressive form but also better players at present.

In the Gulf Cup, two teams' forms are completely different. While Iraq qualified for semi-finals, Yemen became the first team eliminated at the group stage.

In the two first matches, they lost both of them, scored no goals as well as conceded nine times. That terrible performance reflected how poor they prepare for the competition, but their team cannot have better conditions to train.

By beating Yemen, Iraq will fortify their place in Group A to have more advantages in the semi-final match. In the case of Yemen, they need to have at least a point before leaving the tournament, but it is too hard at the moment.

The only hope is to have as few conceded goals as possible. They do not want to be humiliated again as in the match versus Qatar.

Iraq vs Yemen possible lineups:

Iraq: Mohammed Hameed, Alaa Ali Mhawi, Saad Natiq Naji, Ahmad Ibrahim Khalaf, Ali Adnan, Ibrahim Bayesh, Amjad Attwan, Bashar Resan, Alaa Abdul-Zahra, Humam Tariq, Mohanad Ali Kadhim.

Yemen: Saeed, Sadeq, Abdurabu, Boqshan, Al-Gahwashi, Al Worafi, Al Matari, Al Dahi, Gamal, Al Sarori, Emad Mansoor.
