QAT vs IRQ Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
Qatar and Iraq will be aiming for a place in the quarterfinals of the AFC Asian Cup as they square off in the round-of-16 match at Al Nahyan Stadium, in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, on Tuesday night (IST).
For Qatar, the Asian Cup is a perfect opportunity to build up for the biggest tournament of all, i.e. the FIFA World Cup 2022. They are the hosts, so they won't be playing in the qualifiers. But the other side of it is that Qatar will be short on competitive matches, which may hinder the progress of the squad. That's why this tournament is of ultra importance for Félix Sánchez Bas as he aims to build his squad for the future.
So far in the tournament, Qatar have been near perfect, scoring most goals while their defense is yet to be pierced.
Iraq settled for a 0-0 draw in their final group game and finished second in the group only on goal difference.
The journey, however, wasn’t smooth by any means, not at least in the first match. They had to come from behind against Vietnam in the opening game, with the winner coming in the 90th minute, courtesy of Ali Adnan’s boot.
The next game was all about the lessons Iraq learned in the first game as Srečko Katanec’s team cruised to a 3-0 win over Yemen.
The 2015 AFC Asian Cup semi-finalists are the dark horse for the tournament. They may not have the same pedigree or the history as some of the other teams playing in this AFC Asian Cup, but manager Srečko Katanec lavished praise on his team’s fans who flocked into the grounds whenever his team played in the home country.

QAT vs IRQ Dream11 FANTASY TEAM:
INDIA FANTASY PREDICTION:
Qatar are yet to concede a goal in this tournament while they have produced the most attacking displays as well. So the team seems to be clicking in all the department at the moment.
However, Iraq will be a totally different animal and can trouble the 2022 FIFA World Cup hosting nation.
But Qatar have too much quality in attacking areas and in Almoez Ali boasts one of the best players in this tournament.
A won for Qatar is our quality.
