On Saturday at the Lusail Stadium, Jordan and Qatar will clash in the Asian Cup final, aiming for the title of champions of the AFC region.

Jordan, also known as the “Chivalrous Ones,” are chasing their first-ever Asian Cup title, while Qatar aims to defend their crown and become only the fourth nation to achieve this feat. According to the FIFA World Rankings, Qatar ranks 58th globally and sixth in Asia, whereas Jordan sits at 87th worldwide and 12th in the region.

Jordan made history by reaching the semi-finals of the AFC Asian Cup, becoming the 16th nation to do so and the first since Australia and Uzbekistan in 2011. They secured their place in the final by defeating tournament favorites South Korea in the semi-final, with goals from Yazan Al Naimat and Mousa Tamari. Although considered underdogs, Jordan’s victory over South Korea wasn’t a huge surprise, as they had previously held them to a 2-2 draw in the group stage. Jordan’s journey to the final included a 1-0 loss to Bahrain and a crucial 3-2 victory over Iraq in the group stage. Their recent form suggests they are peaking at the right moment, especially after ending a six-match winless streak with a 2-1 victory over Qatar in a friendly just before the tournament began.

Meanwhile, Qatar has been in exceptional form, winning nine out of their last ten games across all competitions. They cruised through the group stage with three consecutive victories over Tajikistan, China PR, and Lebanon without conceding a goal. In the knockout stage, they faced tougher challenges but managed to overcome Palestine with a 2-1 victory in the last-16 tie. Their quarter-final match against Uzbekistan went to extra time, but they secured a 3-2 victory in the penalty shootout. In the semi-final against Iran, a late goal by Almoez Ali secured a narrow victory, handing Iran’s head coach his first loss. With a solid head-to-head record against Jordan and home-field advantage, Qatar enters the final as deserved favorites.
