Chettri's India eye history against Bahrain

The match is going to be crucial for both the sides as a win might book them a spot in the round of 16 of the tournament. India started the AFC Asian Cup 2019 with a bang, beating Thailand 4-1 but then had a reality check against UAE as they lost that game 2-0.

Bahrain, on the other hand, was able to draw the game against UAE 1-1 but faced a 1-0 loss against Thailand in their second game.

It will be a proud moment for either of the side if they make it to the next round.

India, currently ranked 97th in the FIFA World rankings has never qualified for a knock stage in the Asian Cup history while FIFA World ranked 113, Bahrain had gone past the group stages only once in 2004 when they ended up being the fourth-placed side in the competition.
