Uzbekistan vs Saudi Arabia match information

Time: 20:00 (GMT+8) on November 14th

Venue: Paxtakor Markaziy Stadion

‎‎Competition: Asia 2022 FIFA World Cup Qualifying

At Group D, Uzbekistan is the only team winning more than 1 winning match after 3 games. Because of that, Uzbekistan could temporarily stand in the first place though they lost against Palestine on the opening match in the World Cup qualification round. A few days ago, they also proved their strength by defeating 3-1 against Kyrgyzstan. Uzbekistan's players are playing with their best form, hence they can beat any Asian team at the moment.

Captain Odil Ahmedov plays a vital role in the tactical system of the Uzbekistan team. The 31-year-old player still takes part in regularly in starting lineups, and he even scores from time to time. Known for tough-tackling style and thunderbolt shots, Ahmedov can shot from a very far distance. It can be a possible weapon for Uzbekistan if they cannot reach Saudi Arabia's penalty area.

On the other hand, the Saudi Arabia team is witnessing a terrible form in 2019. In the last 11 games, they won only 2 matches against Equatorial Guinea and Singapore, which were appraised much weaker than them. Moreover, their team also suffers from various injured players. Therefore, it is very difficult for Saudi Arabia to play against Uzbekistan at the moment.

Uzbekistan: Sardor Rashidov, Fozil Musaev, and Ignatiy Nesterov are not called up.

Saudi Arabia: Fahad Al-Muwallad, Hussein Abdulghani, Waleed Abdullah injured.
