The hosts (Qatar) were beaten 2-0 by Ecuador in the opening game of the World Cup, and the hosts looked completely off the pace in the group opener.
The World Cup is not yet over for either of these teams. But victory here, in what each will now likely see as their most favourable fixture, is crucial going into the final round of group games.
The hosts are likely to start with Saad Al Sheeb in goal. The back three will comprise of Bassam Al Rawi, Boualem Khoukhi and Abdelkarim Hassan. Pedro Miguel and Homam Ahmed will be deployed as the wing-backs. The two players were quite limited in the last game, and they will be expected to venture forward and support the attack here.
