Defending champions Australia are in a sport of bother going into their second game against Palestine having opened their campaign with a defeat. The shock 1-0 loss to Jordan may be attributed to a bad day at work for Graham Arnold’s men who are not known for their complacency on the pitch. If they are to march on, they will need maximum points against the Palestinians who somehow scraped to a point against Jordan despite going down to ten men. They are known for their tight defensive work which makes opposition clamour for space. AFC Asia Cup 2019 Video Highlights: India Lose 0-2 to United Arab Emirates
Australia are banking on Tom Rogic who has been battling a hand injury off late. The attacking midfielder has taken part in training and would likely be drafted in the starting eleven despite the pain barrier. The versatile playmaker is crucial has he is the one who could thread in those defence-splitting passes needed against a team like Palestine who are a rigid unit. Trent Sainsbury is a booking away from suspension and the Australian management will want the PSV Eindhoven man to be calm at the back. The Socceroos have quality in every department and they just need to play their natural attacking game to get the job done.
Palestine know they are inferior to their opposition and would again stick to their defensive tactics putting everyone behind the ball. Mohammed Saleh is suspended for the tie after receiving two yellow cards against Syria. The centre-back will be a huge miss for the Palestinians as he is quite an assuring figure at the back for his country. Khaled Salem and Yashir Islame are the two best goal scoring talent in the Palestinian ranks but would be rendered ineffective if their team fails to hold on to possession. Australia will be under pressure to deliver despite the opposition possessing a negligible threat. If they get the win today, it pushes them to second in the group still with an outside chance to be table toppers.
