AFC Asian Cup 2019 Predicted XI: DPR Korea V Qatar

In their second matches in the AFC Asian Cup 2019, DPR Korea hope to finally get a win in the competition as they go up against Qatar who are looking to remain unbeaten and book their place in the next round.

At the moment, Qatar find themselves second in the table, three points behind leaders Saudi Arabia with a game on hand. A win would definitely seal their place in the next round but a loss can give life to the other teams in the cluster.

With that in mind, here are the predicted starting XI for both teams:
