Saudi Arabia U23 vs Qatar U23 match information

Time: 18:15 (GMT+8) on January 12th

Venue: Thammasat Stadium

‎‎Competition: 2020 AFC U23 Championship

Qatar U23 will play against Japan in the last match of the group stage, so they want to take advantage before facing the host of the 2020 Olympics men's football event.

Beating Saudi Arabia U23 seems to be a possible task for coach Felix Sanchez and Qatari players, however, they have to fight with all of their strength to make it become true.

Unlike other opponents, Saudi Arabia U23 knows them well, so they should prepare some special tactical plays to score goals.

In terms of Saudi Arabia U23 team, they also want to improve the chance to qualify for the quarter-finals. In theory, they will pass the group stage if they win two remaining games against Qatar and Syria, so they have the reasons to continue fighting.

Compared to the Syria U23 team, Qatar is a much harder rival, making Saudi Arabia U23 repeatedly train the set-pieces to score goals easier when they face each other.

However, with the current situation, the chance for Saudi Arabia to beat Qatar U23 is very small. With many players who were called up to the senior team, Qatar brings the best possible squad to the tournament.

Consequently, they will likely win the match but it is not easy for their players.

Saudi Arabia U23 vs Qatar U23 possible lineups:

Saudi Arabia U23: Mohammed Al-Rubaie, Saud Abdulhamid, Abdulelah Al-Amri, Abdullah Hassoun, Tomban Tombakti, Khalid Al-Ghannam, Hussain Al-Eisa, Saad Al-Selouli, Ayman Yahya, Firas Al-Buraikan, Abdullah Al-Hamdan.

Qatar U23: Meshaal Barsham, Abdullah Saleh, Ali Karami, Tarek Salman, Ahmed Alhamawende, Mohammed Jadoua, Yusuf Abdurisag Yusuf, Nasser Alahrak, Hassan Palang, Abdullah Al Ahrak, Amro Surag.
