Syria were halted to a toothless draw against Uzbekistan which could give them massive inspiration as they look to produce an upset against Australia. A win here would completely open the group for all the teams and pave the way for Syria to march into the next stage of the competition.


Australia, on the other hand, left their first game with a victory against a lower-ranked Indian side. The Socceroos netted two goals past the Blue Tigers as they reached the top of the table and can cement their position in the next stage with another three points.

They may be at opposite ends of the Asian Cup power rankings, but there's something about Australia that seems to bring the best out of Syria. All three of their previous encounters have been thrillers, and we're hoping to see another today. It's airing for FREE in some countries.


An Aussie victory would secure a passage to the next round thanks to their 2-0 win over India at the weekend, though it's fair to surmise that fans were left feeling a little short-changed by their opener. Graham Arnold's men looked like they'd underestimated their opponents, and required a huge slice of fortune in order to break the deadlock.


Jackson Irvine capitalized and substitute Jordan Bos applied the gloss, but if they continue playing like that, sooner or later they'll end up paying the price. Hector Cuper has made Syria solid at the back, and they restricted Uzbekistan to optimistic efforts from distance in their goalless draw on Saturday.


It was a solid base to build on, but if they're going to progress through the group stage for the first time, they need to find goals from somewhere. The most obvious source, the former Asian Footballer of the Year Omar Khribin, was only brought on for the last 20 minutes of their opener, and Syria's only notable efforts were long-range potshots from Ibrahim Hesar and Ammar Ramadan.


Syria vs Australia squads


Syria: Ibrahim Alma, Ahmad Madanieh, Taha Mousa, Maksim Sarraf, Aiham Hanz Ousou, Mouaiad Alajaan, Amr Almidani, Amro Jeniat, Thaer Krouma, Khaled Kourdoghli, Moaiad Alkhoul, Ampntoul Rachman Oues, Ezequiel Ham, Kamel Hmeisheh, Mohammad Alhallak, Amar Ramadan, Mohammed, Osman, Elmar Abraham, Fahad Youssef, Jalil Elias, Ibrahim Hesar, Omar Khribin, Alaa Aldin Yasin Dali, Pablo Sabbag, Antonio Yakoub, Mahmood Alaswad


Australia: Mat Ryan, Joe Gauci, Lawrence Thomas, Harry Souttar, Kye Rowles, Cameron Burgess, Nathaniel Atkinson, Thomas Deng, Jordy Bos, Aziz Behich, Lewis Miller, Gethin Jones, Keanu Baccus, Aiden O’Neill, Jackson Irvine, Connor Metcalfe, Riley McGree, Patrick Yazbek, Craig Goodwin, Martin Boyle, Sam Silvera, Marco Tilio, John Iredale, Kusini Yengi, Bruno Fornaroli, Mitchell Duke


Syria are without any massive concerns as they will be banking on the attacking duo of Omar Khribin and Alaa Aldeen Al Dali to score some goals after firing blanks in their previous outing in Qatar.


Amro Jenyat is closing in on his 50th international cap as he has five more games left to achieve the iconic feat while Fahd Youssef needs nine more caps to reach the mark.


Matthew Ryan will continue between the sticks for Australia after collecting his 31st international clean sheet.


The pairing of Jackson Irvine and Jordan Bos were on the scoresheet for the Socceroos against India with the latter doubling their lead coming off the bench. Mitchell Duke is touted to lead the forward battery once again for Australia and help them reach the knockouts.


The Socceroos kicked off their tournament with a 2-0 win over India in Al Rayyan as Syria drew 0-0 with Uzbekistan. Graham Arnold's side are looking to build on their run to the 2022 FIFA World Cup Round of 16 and they remain amongst the favourites to win the Asian Cup title in Qatar.


Syria have not won an AFC Asian Cup match since 2011 and a tight draw against Uzbekistan is a relatively strong start for them. With no updates on the injury front for Australia, Arnold could stick with an unchanged starting XI, with Mitchell Duke leading the attack.


Australia can seal their place in the knockout stages with a win in this game and Syria are unlikely to pose any major issues for Arnold's team in Al Rayyan. A place in the Round of 16 is a basic objective for Arnold and he will already be planning for how far Australia can progress in this tournament after losing out in the quarterfinals in 2019.


The biggest positive from Australia’s win over India is that captain and first-choice goalkeeper Mat Ryan was able to start the match whilst wearing a protective mask as he continues to recover from a fractured cheekbone.


Gethin Thomas was solid on his international debut at right-back, whilst Bos may have played his way into a starting spot with his goal off the bench, as well as Australia’s attacking struggles against a low-block defence.


The Socceroos have already taken the lead in Group B by way of a win over India and could strengthen their grip should they come through this test as expected.


Still, Hector Cuper’s side looked very well organised against Uzbekistan in their opening 0-0 draw in Qatar. If one thing is for certain, Syria will be incredibly difficult to break down.


History is against them, however. They have never before beaten Australia, albeit manager Graham Arnold was not exactly delighted with the way in which they opened the tournament.
