In our match analysis informing you how to watch the AFC Asian Cup final between Japan and Qatar, we compare team statistics and analyze both teams’their head-to-head record.

What's the form of Japan compared to Qatar?

While Japan boasts a 100 percent record so far in this tournament, it was in their last game that they turned up their performance. The Samurai Blue won all of their first five games by a narrow one-goal margin but thrashed Iran 3-0 in the semi-final to make it to this stage.

Qatar, meanwhile, has not only been great in attack but also in defense. The Gulf nation has scored a whopping 16 times so far, winning every single game in this competition without conceding a goal. They head into the final off an impressive 4-0 thrashing of the host UAE in the last four.

Fortunately for both sides, they have a full squad to choose from in the ultimate game. There were no sending offs in the semi-finals and the disciplinary records were wiped clean in the last-eight, meaning Abdelaziz Hatim and Bassam Al Rawi will be back for Al Annabi.

Japan vs Qatar: a final set to set new records

This final will make history, regardless of who wins. This is because both sides have feats within reach and need only to win in order to attain them.

For Japan, the competition's most successful side, a record fifth title is theirs for the taking. The Asian giant has never lost a final in this competition and could lose their perfect record should they fail to overcome the Qataris.

Furthermore, the Samurai Blue boss Hajime Moriyasu could also become the first man to win this trophy as a player and manager, as he was a figure in his nation's first ever Asian Cup triumph. Additionally, he could also become the first Japanese tactician to lift this title as his country relied on managers from Netherlands, France, Brazil, and Italy for their four previous wins.

Qatar, who has never made the final before, can win this continental prize for the first time in history. Al Annabi has already shattered records with their form in this competition and victory over Japan would be the icing on the cake.

All eyes will be on Almoez Ali, with the attacker stealing the show in UAE 2019. The 22-year-old has scored eight goals so far and has equaled Ali Daei's record for most goals in a single tournament. One more strike and the Qatari ace will overtake the Iranian icon.
