Lebanon VS Sri Lanka Today Match LIVE Football Score 5/6/2021
The Lebanon national football team, controlled by the Lebanese Football Association (LFA), have represented Lebanon in association football since their inception in 1933. The squad is governed by the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) continentally, and FIFA worldwide. While Lebanon have yet to qualify for the FIFA World Cup, they have participated twice in the AFC Asian Cup: in 2000, when they hosted the event, and in 2019, the first time through regular qualification. Lebanon’s main venue is the Camille Chamoun Sports City Stadium in Beirut; however they also play in other locations such as the Saida International Stadium in Sidon.
The home team come into this on the back of a 1-1 draw away to Kuwait in a friendly in March that means they have lost just two matches in their last seven in a run that stretches back to mid-2019 due to the COVID-enforced break.
The Sri Lanka national football team (Sinhala: ශ්රී ලංකා පාපන්දු කණ්ඩායම, Tamil: இலங்கை தேசிய கால்பந்து அணி) represents Sri Lanka in association football and is controlled by the Football Federation of Sri Lanka, the governing body of football in Sri Lanka. Sri Lanka’s home grounds are Colombo Racecourse , Sugathadasa Stadium and Kalutara Stadium. The Sri Lankan team was known as the Ceylon national football team until 1972 when Ceylon was renamed Sri Lanka.
That means they have a strong chance of finishing in the top two and will expect to comfortably beat a Sri Lanka team that are ranked 204th in the world after seven successive defeats since beating Macau in the first round of World Cup qualification in mid-2019. Lebanon are the comfortable favourites.
