Saudi Arabia vs Qatar match information

Time: 01:00 (GMT+8) on December 6th

Venue: Abdullah bin Khalifa Stadium

‎‎Competition: 2019 Gulf Cup

After unexpectedly losing Iraq in the first match, Qatar players proved why they are called one of the best Asian teams at the moment. They had back-to-back winnings by beating Yemen and UAE by 6-0 and 4-2 score, respectively.

Currently, Qatar is the team scoring most goals with eleven times in three matches. There is no opponent can stop them scoring at present, even Saudi Arabia.

In the case of Saudi Arabia, there is a fluctuation in the performance in 2019. Like Qatar, they lost the first match then won two remaining games, but the problem is the unstable form of their players.

In 2019, Saudi Arabia lost six times, including the defeated game against Qatar in the Asian Cup. Plus the advantage of the host nation, Qatar has all the conditions to beat Saudi Arabia again with its best players.

Another problem with Saudi Arabia is the defending system. In the 2019 Gulf Cup, five of seven defenders they took to the competition are young players.

Consequently, they regularly made mistakes, leading to various conceded goals at the preliminary round. If it happens again in the match with Qatar, Saudi Arabia can face a humiliating result in the semi-finals.

Saudi Arabia vs Qatar possible lineups:

Saudi Arabia: Mohammed Al-Owais, Mohammed Al-Burayk, Ziyad Al-Sahafi, Abdullah Madu, Yasir Al-Shahrani, Salman Al-Faraj, Abdullah Ateef, Abdulfattah Tawfiq Asiri, Yahia Al-Shehri, Hattan Bahebri, Abdullah Al-Hamdan.
