Time: 00:30 (GMT+8) on November 27th

Venue: Khalifa International Stadium, Doha

‎‎Competition: 2019 Gulf Cup

Qatar will open their Gulf Cup 2019 campaign with a match against the Iraqi team. With the strength and depth of the team, a win for Qatar is expected.

Group A of Gulf Cup 2019 has the presence of many big names of Western Asian football such as Qatar, Iraq, Yemen and the UAE. This is a very competitive group, so just one slip will make any team pay the price.

Qatar now has a nice World Cup qualifying campaign, winning 4 wins and 1 draw. This achievement helps them to top Group E with 13 points. As host of the Gulf Cup 2019, their goal is reaching the finals, then aiming for the glory.

At the 2022 World Cup qualifier, coach Félix Sánchez's team plays quite impressively with the first place in the table at this time. Akram Afif and Almoez Ali are still the most notable names in Qatar's squad. Both are in good shape and have had very impressive performances in past matches. Facing a weak team like Iraq, this is a better opportunity for both to improve their achievements in the national shirt.

The head-to-head record of the two teams is also completely supported Qatar with 4 wins in the latest 5 encounters. Moreover, Iraq does not have the strongest squad in this match, so the visitor cannot get any point.

Qatar: Saad Al Sheeb, Boualem Khoukhi, Abdelkarim Hassan, Pedro Miguel Correia, Abdulaziz Hatem, Assim Madibo, Tarek Salman, Bassam Hisham, Akram Afif, Hassan Al Heidos, Almoez Ali.
