Jordan vs Bahrain LIVE MATCH

Jordan will face Bahrain at the Khalifa International Stadium on Thursday in the final round of the 2023 AFC Asian Cup group stage.

The Chivalrous Ones kicked off their continental campaign with a comprehensive 4-0 victory over Malaysia, with Mahmoud Al-Mardi and Mousa Al-Taamari scoring braces for their team. They then played out a 2-2 draw against South Korea in their second group game and had looked set to be headed toward a hard-fought win before their opponents drew level in additional time via a Yazan Alarab own goal.

Jordan sit atop their group with four points from an obtainable six and only need a point on Thursday to confirm a last-16 spot.

Bahrain, meanwhile, were beaten 3-1 by South Korea in their group opener last week and were perhaps fortunate not to have lost by an even larger margin. They picked up their first win of the tournament in their second group game, beating Malaysia 1-0 at the Jassim Bin Hamad Stadium last Saturday, with Ali Madan finishing spectacularly at the death to hand Muharabi Dilmun all three points.

The Pearl Divers sit third in their group with three points and will automatically advance to the knockout stages with a win on Thursday while a draw could also suffice.
