‎‎Competition: Asia World Cup Qualifying 

There is a little surprise happening in Group C at present. Iraq and Bahrain are two teams that share two leading places instead of Iran. Both teams defeated Iran to strengthen their position in Group C.

Now they have to fight against each other to pursue the same goal: To play at the next qualification round, which means a big chance to play at World Cup next 3 years. However, compared to Bahrain, Iraq can be considered the stronger team at the moment.

The key player in Iraq's tactical system is left-back Ali Adnan. Unlike other full-backs that only know to cross into the penalty box, Ali Adnan can shoot from a very long range. Moreover, he is also a master in free-kick situations. It explains why Ali Adnan scores goals regularly though he is a defender.

Besides, it is the match where Iraqi players play at their home ground so that they are likely to win easily. Fighting against Iraq at away ground is a very difficult task for the Bahrain team, which just has a normal squad at the moment.

As a result, Bahrain will have to try harder in the following matches if they do not want to lose their current place to Iran.

Iraq vs Bahrain possible lineups:

Iraq: Mohammed Hameed, Alaa Ali Mhawi, Saad Natiq Naji, Ahmad Ibrahim Khalaf, Ali Adnan, Ibrahim Bayesh, Amjad Attwan, Bashar Resan, Alaa Abdul-Zahra, Humam Tariq, Mohanad Ali Kadhim.

Bahrain: Sayed Mohamed Abbas, Sayed Baqer, Ahmed Bughammar, Al Hazaa, Waleed Al-Hayam, Mohammed Al-Hardan, Sayed Dhyia Saeed, Abdulwahab Al Malood, Jasim Al-Shaikh, Mahdi Al-Humaidan, Yusuf.
