Oman earned the right to play Iran in the round of the 16 of the 2019 Asian Cup with a fighting win against Turkmenistan, a game that looked to drift away from them. The entire squad managed by Pim Verbeek has shown tremendous resolve in not giving up and only lost to Japan and Uzbeks narrowly. Iran, on the other hand, have been in good touch and head coach Carlos Queiroz will be desperate to finally lead his wards to a title after years of underachieving. Their draw against Iraq was a timely reminder for the team to work on their problem areas and being a hard taskmaster, Queiroz would have worked on it.

Iran have confirmed Alireza Jahanbakhsh who could only manage 60 minutes against Iraq is fit to be considered for selection. The attacking midfielder is an integral part of the team and his services would be needed if Iran are to unlock the stubborn Oman defence. Sardar Azmoun is probably the most talented player out of the twenty-two on display and the young forward has been in fine form in the tournament scoring three goals so far. Supporting Azmoun in attack will be Omid Ebrahimi who has 42 international caps under his belt and his role is to link up with the midfield and provide his central striker the license to attack.
Oman skipper Ahmed Al Mahaijri scored a beautiful free kick in his side’s 3-1 win in their previous game and has claimed his side are not satisfied with the just progressing to the round of 16. For a side that is yet to concede in the tournament, Al Mahaijri will have to play one of the games of his life to cause a major upset. Khalid Al Braiki and Mohammed Al Maslami knows they will have to dig deep and defend for a long period when Iran will be dominating. They will need to be very efficient in possession in order to hurt Iran. Not an easy game for Iran but one that they will manage to get over the finishing line in the end.
