Oman will host China at the Sultan Qaboos Sports Complex in Muscat on Tuesday in their final qualifying game for the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

The Reds have already been eliminated from the fray after collecting just 11 points from nine games. However, ending their campaign on a high looks to be on their agenda, especially after they saw off Vietnam 1-0 in their penultimate game on Thursday.

China, meanwhile, are below them in the Group B standings, sitting five points adrift in fourth place with just one win so far. However, the Dragons produced an encouraging performance earlier this week by holding Saudi Arabia to a 1-1 draw.

Oman vs China Head-To-Head

There have been eight clashes between the two teams, with the Dragons winning five times against Oman and losing just once, way back in 2008. In their November meeting last year, the two teams played out a 1-1 draw.
