Bahrain and Iraq played to a goalless draw yesterday in both teams’ second Group A game of the FIFA Arab Cup 2021, being held in Doha. The result earned the Bahrainis their first point in the competition after two matches.

They need to win their last preliminary round game on Monday against Oman to have any chance of advancing to the ensuing knockout stage. The Iraqis came away with their second stalemate.

The Qataris face-off with the Iraqis in their final fixture, also on Monday. Both Group A matches are scheduled for 10 pm kick-offs, with the Bahrain-Oman clash set for Ahmad Bin Ali Stadium and Qatar-Iraq at Al Bayt Stadium.
