UAE vs Iraq Preview, Possible Lineups & Predictions

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

UAE vs Iraq match information

Time: 22:30 (GMT+8) on November 29th

Venue: Khalifa International Stadium

‎‎Competition: 2019 Gulf Cup

Leading Group A after the first match does not mean the UAE will qualify easily for semi-finals. The team defeated by them in the first match was Yemen, a very weak team.

In two remaining games, they will play against Iraq and Qatar, two strong competitors. Consequently, their chance to gain points in those matches is not possible.

Compared to past generations, the current team of UAE is not better. Their weak point is the defense with inexperienced players.

4 of 6 UAE defenders competing in the Gulf Cup have never played for the international team before. The proof is they currently stand at the fourth position in the qualification round in the 2022 World Cup.

Before the Gulf Cup, they showed a poor form by back-to-back defeats against Thailand and Vietnam. The same thing may happen in this match when their opponent will be Iraq and then Qatar.

Unlike the UAE, the Iraq team is showing impressive performance. Currently, they have 6 consecutive undefeated games, including the victories against strong opponents such as Iran.

Moreover, they won over Qatar - the host nation of 2019 Gulf Cup - in the first match.

With a strong team having high spirits, Iraq can defeat any teams at the moment.

UAE vs Iraq possible lineups:

UAE: Khalid Eisa, Mohamed Almenhali, Mohamed Omar Al Attas, Khalifa Alhammadi, Alhasan Saleh, Jassim Yaqoob Salman, Tariq Ahmed, Ahmed Khalil, Omar Abdulrahman, Hassan Ali, Ali Mabkhout.
