The White took full advantage of the crowd support and has had a good tournament so far. They have remained unbeaten after the first two match-days came to a close.
It’s true that they have not yet assured themselves of a place in the latter stages of the competition, but they have got a favorable draw to count on.
The War Elephants were defeated by a hungry Indian team, who were eager to prove themselves to the world stage.
Four goals went past the Thailand backline, and the team morale has likely taken a hit. On top of that, they face the uphill task of going against the tournament hosts in their last group stage game.
Fans can treat themselves to a football treat as it is a do-or-die stage for both sides. Asian football is on the rise, and matches like these ones will do a world of good in getting the continent what it deserves.
It will take quite some time, but the passionate fans of this region dream of a day when they rule the world of this sport along with Latin America and Europe.

UAE vs Thailand Prediction
The Arab nation has a 100% winning record against Sirisak Yodyardthai’s men, at home. Moreover, the hosts kept clean sheets in two of their last three h2h home appearances. Considering that U.A.E has the crowd behind them, and with the historical record backing the team, we can expect a home win.
It was quite unfortunate that the Changsuek had to face a tough loss in their opener against India. The group conceded four goals and it took the life out of the team that came into the competition with quite some hopes.
The team captained by Ismail Matar needs just a draw to ensure progress, but a win will give them the group champions tag. As a comparatively easier match awaits the topper of the group in the next stage, U.A.E should go for a win against this weaker rival.
The White will not take risks and jeopardize what they have achieved till now, and in all probability, we can expect them to keep a clean sheet.
