Oman VS Qatar Today Match LIVE Football Score 7/6/2021
Gulf nations Oman and Qatar lock horns at the Jassim bin Hamad Stadium in Doha on Monday in the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers.
Qatar’s hosting rights for next year’s showpiece tournament means the Asian champions are long guaranteed a place. However, they are competing to secure a direct berth in the 2023 Asia Cup.
With six victories and a draw, the Crimsons are at the top of Group E with 19 points, and another win next week would confirm their ticket to China.
The Qataris had to sweat hard to beat India 1-0 despite having a man advantage for 65 minutes of the match. However the three points helped them to cement their place at the top of the group and avoid a defeat in their final group game against Oman will help them win the group irrespective of remaining results.
It is worth noting that Qatar has already played 7 and have 19 points in the bag. Their opponent Oman is second in the table but they played 2 games less and will meet the likes of Bangladesh and Afghanistan to wrap up the proceedings.
If Oman win here, they then are in a good position to finish as group winners, provided they win their next 2 games.
Their Gulf rivals Oman are second with 12 points and assured of a place in the third round of the World Cup qualifiers. As things stand, Oman will be heading into the third-qualifying round for the Asia Cup.
However, the Reds can still mathematically secure direct entry into the competition, provided they win all three of their remaining games.
