KSA will face Tajikistan, tonight at 5 pm, at Pamir Stadium in Dushanbe, Tajikistan as part of the fourth round of the 2026 AFC Asian Cup Qualifiers.   

The previous leg of the game ended with the victory of the KSA 1-0 last week.

KSA head their qualifiers group with 9 points after having 3 wins and scoring 7 goals.

On the other hand, Tajikistan come second with 4 points after having a victory, a draw, and a defeat, and scoring 7 goals. 

KSA need this game's victory to be qualified for the next round of the 2026 AFC Asian Cup qualifiers. 

In the previous edition, Qatar won the 2023 AFC Asian Cup tournament, retaining their title, after defeating Jordan 3-1 in the final of the tournament.

Qatar retained their title at Lusail Stadium, the stadium that hosted the final of the 2022 FIFA World Cup, thanks to Akram Afif's three penalty shots.

After the victory, Qatar became the first team to win the tournament back-to-back since 2004.

In the same context, Jordan's Crown Prince Al Hussein greeted his country's national team for reaching the final of the tournament for the first time in their history.
