Vietnam and Saudi Arabia will battle for three points in a 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifier on Tuesday.

The home side come into the game on the back of a 1-0 defeat to Japan at the same ground on Thursday. Junya Ito scored the winning goal in the 17th minute.

Saudi Arabia could not be separated from Australia in a goalless draw away from home.

Despite the draw, the Green Falcons remain at the summit of Group B, having garnered 13 points from five matches. Vietnam are bottom of the standings and are yet to register their first points of the qualifiers.

Vietnam vs Saudi Arabia Head-to-Head

Saudi Arabia were victorious in all three of their previous clashes with Vietnam, winning the games with an aggregate victory of 12-1.

A second-half fightback saw Saudi Arabia score three goals after the break to overturn a one-goal deficit at halftime and secure a 3-1 victory in September.

The hosts are currently on a six-game losing run while last Thursday's draw with Australia halted a nine-game winning run for Tuesday's visitors.
