The United Arab Emirates will be aiming to make it five straight wins on Tuesday when they face Vietnam in Group G of the Asian qualifiers for the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

The match will take place at the Zabeel Stadium in Dubai.

Vietnam are unbeaten in their last 10 games across all competitions and will look to maintain this impressive run of results.

Ali Mabkhout and Fabio Lima scored in either half to hand the UAE their second successive 5-0 victory over Indonesia.

Bert van Marwijk’s side have picked up four straight wins across all competitions and are unbeaten in their last five games, scoring 18 goals and conceding just one.

Similarly, Vietnam have enjoyed a superb run in the qualifiers. They head into the game following a hard-earned 2-1 win over Malaysia last Friday.

Guilherme canceled out Nguyen Tien Linh’s first-half opener, but Que Ngoc Hai restored Vietnam’s lead from the penalty spot in the 82nd minute.

Hang-seo Park’s men are unbeaten in their last 10 games across all competitions, dating back to a 1-0 loss to Japan in the AFC Asian Cup back in January 2019.

With 17 points from seven outings, they currently sit at the top of the group, two points ahead of Tuesday’s hosts.
