Dubai: Lebanon head into their match against Saudi Arabia at the Al Maktoum Stadium on Saturday needing a win to keep their AFC Asian Cup UAE 2019 hopes alive.
In their group opener against Qatar on Wednesday, Lebanon held their opponents to a goalless first half, but were struck in the second half by goals from Bassam Al Rawi and Almoez Ali.
Sitting third in the group standings behind Qatar and Saudi Arabia, who have three points each, Lebanon head coach Miodrag Radulovic said his team must aim for a win on Saturday.
“I told my players that we have to forget what happened in the last game, and all our focus is for the next game,” said the former Pakhtakor Tashkent coach.

Iraq produced one of the best showings of the first game-week when they rallied back twice to defeat Vietnam. The Lions of Mesopotamia fell behind early on, courtesy of an own goal by Ali Faez Atiyah. However, Mohanad Ali equalized just fifteen minutes later.
Nevertheless, Vietnam once again took the lead in the 42nd minute when AFF Suzuki Cup hero Nguyen Cuong Phong popped in to score his first of the competition and to put his team in the lead.
