The selections of Kyrgyzstan and the Philippines play this Wednesday, January 16, for their survival in the 2019 edition of the Asian Cup, which is being hosted by the United Arab Emirates. The match, to be held at the Maktoum Bin Rashid Al-Maktoum Stadium in Dubai, is part of the schedule for the third – and final – round of Group C. It is scheduled to start at 11:30 AM (GMT).The key has already set its two qualifiers for the round of 16. China and South Korea, facing the same time in the first place, reached the six possible points in the first two rounds and won the available places.However, there is still the possibility of survival through recapping. It takes into account the teams that are in third place in the six groups of the first phase. The top four will join the 12 teams that have secured direct spots.
In this struggle, Kyrgyzstan has a slight advantage over the Philippines. His goal deficit is two negative goals while the opponent has a four-goal deficit. That way, in case of equality, will be with the third place. That, however, is not necessarily enough to be among the top four placed.However, the technical weakness that has been shown by the selections so far allows us to imagine a scenario in which a point won, depending on the balance of goals, can yield the classification for the round of 16. However, reaching the three points will make the possibility of winning the wave greatly increased.Kyrgyzstan even made a match that could be considered, within its limitations, good against China in the debut. With 46% possession, he finished more than the rivals, (ten to nine), but only sent a ball in the right direction. She entered. The Chinese got two shots on target. One of them came in. To reach the victory of 2 to 1, they needed the collaboration of the rivals, who scored a goal against goalkeeper Matjas.In the second match against South Korea, Kyrgyzstan’s team was largely dominated (71% to 29% possession), but they knew what to do when they had the ball. Created 12 opportunities to finish. He sinned, but once, as the kicks. Only two went in the right direction, and this time none of them rocked the net. The defense, however, was not as solid. The South Koreans managed to produce 19 kicking opportunities, sending seven on target. This time, Matyas did a better job. But it was not perfect. One of the balls ended up entering and declaring the defeat by 1 to 0.
The Filipinos had lower numbers in their duel against the South Koreans. They were in possession of the ball for less time (18% to 82%), were less likely to finish (6 to 2) and even though they managed to reduce the efficiency of the rival attack more effectively (5 kicks against 2) threatened the rival goal.Against the Chinese, the selection of the Philippines until they tried to play. He showed closer numbers of possession (45% to 55), but his offensive production was lower compared to the game against South Korea, when he had the ball for less than half the time. He tried four shots against 14 attempts to finish the opponent. He sent only one in the right direction as he took seven shots in the direction of his goal. He ended up losing 3-0.This put the team in more complicated situation where the draw does not serve against Kyrgyzstan. He will have to try to win. In the case of the balance of goals, at first it does not seem to be that important. Hardly five third-place finishers will reach the three-point mark – or more – forcing the use of this tiebreaker criterion.
