The Bahrain and Thailand teams are set to kick off on Thursday, January 10, in the second of the three qualifying rounds of the 2019 Asian Cup, which has the United Arab Emirates as the seat of their decisive stage. The match will be held at the Al Maktoum stadium in Dubai, and is due to start at 9am (Brasília time).The teams are in Group A, which leads in India with three points earned. In the opening game, the Indians thrashed the Thais, who hold the key lantern, by 4-1. Second place is split by Baharein’s team and home owners with a point after the 1-1 draw in the opening match of the tournament.The regulation establishes that after the three rounds of the first phase the top two in each of the groups will progress to the round of 16. The key, with 16 selections, will win the complement of the four best placed thirds in comparison with the six teams that finish in that placement.
It was up to Bahrain to make the first goal of the 2018 Asian Cup. In front of the hosts, Al Rohaimi scored in the 33 minutes of the final stage. The visitors held the advantage until almost the end. However, a maximum penalty was scored and resulted in the equalizing goal, scored by Khalil, in the 43rd minute.The strategy of the Bahrain national team was very clear. The team made no attempt to retain possession (36% versus 64% of the United Arab Emirates). But when he had the ball on his feet it was efficient. The number of completion attempts was almost the same (13 to 14). The accuracy was higher (five to three in the right shot issue).Such a scenario should be modified for this Thursday’s showdown, as the Thais not only do not have the home factor, nor are they adept at what is called reactive football. This should mean a different stance but no tactical changes in Bahrain, which has adopted the 4-4-2 system against the host country of the tournament and should repeat the formula in the second game.Bahrain had to qualify for the 2019 Asian Cup finals and had no trouble stamping their passports. He secured the first place in Group E, winning 13 (four wins, one draw and one loss) of 18 possible points.He scored 15 goals and only three. It presented the best defensive system of the qualifiers next to Vietnam, that also had its network balanced only three times in six disputed matches. He left behind Turkmenistan (ten points, which also qualified), Taiwan (nine) and Singapore (two).The preparation for the match had nine games and results that can be considered more encouraging than those obtained by his rival in the debut match. He beat North Korea (4-0), Lebanon (1-0), Tajikistan (5-0) and Myanmar (4-1); tied with Hradec Kralove (1 to 1), with the selections of the Philippines (1 to 1) and China (0 to 0); and lost to Oman (2 to 1) and Syria (1 to 0).
A penalty kick put the Indians ahead against Thailand in the 27th minute of the first half. The charge was made by Chhetri. The Thais, however, were quick to react and reached the match six minutes later with Dangda putting the ball into the net.The scenario repeated itself at the beginning of the second stage. In the first minute, Chhetri once again put India ahead on the scoreboard. In their quest to react, the Thai team was unsuccessful and exposed to counterattacks. It finished suffering the third goal in the 23 minutes (Thapa) and the fourth to the Lalpeklua (35 minutes).This has greatly complicated his situation, since in case of finishing in the third place of the key the balance of goals could be decisive in the definition of a place in the recapture. Thus, there is an expectation as to what will be the reaction of Serbian coach Milovan Rajevac, who used the 4-2-3-1 tactical system in the debut.

The Thais had greater possession of the ball (65% to 35%), but failed to maintain that advantage at the time of the finals (14 to 15), much less in the accuracy of the throws (three certain against six).In the race for the Russia World Cup, Thailand advanced to the third – and final – Asian qualifying round. But he stayed away from the fight for the spot. It was the sixth – placed in Group B. It accumulated only two points (two draws and eight losses) of the 30 played.
