Kuwait vs Bahrain match information

Time: 01:00 (GMT+8) on December 3rd

Venue: Khalifa International Stadium

Competition: 2019 Gulf Cup 

The Kuwait team is witnessing many positive results at the end of the year. Last month, they showed their strength by scoring nine goals against Chinese Taipei in the World Cup qualification round.

In the 2019 Gulf Cup, they also surprised their supporters when they defeated Saudi Arabia team in the first match. With that impressive form, Kuwait has all the conditions to beat Bahrain at the moment, which helps them go on proving themselves in semi-finals.

Unlike Kuwait, the most successful national team in the Gulf Cup's history, Bahrain has never won this tournament. Moreover, they have never played well on away matches in 2019.

Last month, they even could not win against Hong Kong in the World Cup qualification round. As a result, beating Kuwait is too difficult for Bahraini players at present, especially when they do not have the home ground advantage.

Another advantage for Kuwait before the match is the head-to-head statistics against Bahrain in the past. In 30 matches held between two teams, Kuwait won 18 games while losing just 12 times.

Even when Bahrain is one of the strongest teams in the Middle East, they were easily beaten by Kuwait. So far, another victory for Kuwait in this game is predicted.

Kuwait vs Bahrain possible lineups:

Kuwait: Hameed Youssef, Fahad Al Reshidi, Fahad Al-Hajeri, Fahed Al-Ansari, Amer Al Fadhel, Sultan Al-Enezi, Al Sulaiman, Ahmed Al Dhufairi, Faisal Zaid Al Harbi, Bader Al Mutwa, Dhary Abdullah.

Bahrain: Sayed Mohamed Abbas, Al Hazaa, Waleed Al-Hayam, Ahmed Bughammar, Sayed Baqer, Mohammed Al-Hardan, Abdulwahab Al Malood, Mahdi Al-Humaidan, Al-Aswad, Ismaeel Abdulatif, Shaban.
