UAE sit on top of group A in the AFC Asian Cup 2019 as of now, but they will need to avoid defeat against Thailand to ensure qualification. For Thailand, on the other hand, a victory would do very nicely.
UAE bounced back from their opening day draw against Bahrain with a victory over India where their incisive finishing came to the fore. Thailand, on the other hand, were hammered by India in the opening match day before keeping their tournament alive with a victory against Bahrain.
