Tajikistan v UAE: Round Of 16 - AFC Asian Cup
The UAE have cantered into the next round with a 100% win record

The UAE host Bahrain at the Rashid Stadium in Dubai on Tuesday for the 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifiers, with both sides already booking their place in the next round of the campaign. The former, who sit five points above their Gulf neighbors, have won Group H, while the Reds are the runners-up.

Ranked 67th in the world, the UAE have a 100% win record in the second round and will be looking to wrap things up with their record intact. The Sons of Zayed have been one of the most impressive sides of the round, blitzing their way to five wins from five and 15 points from a possible 15.

It all began with a thumping 4-0 win over Nepal, and co-incidentally, the Middle Eastern giants posted an identical result against the same opposition in their most recent outing, coming last Thursday.

Paulo Bento's side have simply been on fire, also quickly brushing aside their 2023 AFC Asian Cup disappointment. In the Qatar showpiece a few months back, the UAE were knocked out in the round of 16 by minnows Tajikistan on penalties, with the side also winning just once in three group matches.

On the other hand, Bahrain have ridden on the back of their stoic defense, which has conceded only twice in five games, both of which came against the UAE in a 2-0 loss on matchday two.
