Tonight (5th September 2017) Taiwan continue on their quest to qualify for the 2019 Asian Cup in UAE and will attempt to build on their away success in Singapore, when they take on group leaders and top seeds Bahrain. Bahrain are currently 1 point ahead of Taiwan and Turkmenistan, after a draw and a win from their first two games against Singapore and Turkmenistan.
After the unexpected victory against Singapore, Taiwan are joint on 3 points in the table with Turkmenistan but occupy third place due to their inferior head to head record against the Turkmen.
If somehow Taiwan can manage to pick up a couple of points along the way in the double header against Bahrain, or the away game against Turkmenistan; then defeat Singapore for a second time the miracle could be on and Taiwan could have quite a high chance of qualifying for the finals.
We realise it's very hopeful to think Taiwan will qualify. Miracles can occasionally happen - think Leicester or Wimbledon - but that truly would be one of the biggest miracles in world football if Taiwan made it to the finals. Taiwan Jia You!
The game will be broadcast on Eleven Sports in Taiwan which can be subscribed to online through the link, or can be viewed on MOD channel 180 / 181. Kick off time is midnight (Taiwan local time) and Eleven Sports coverage starts at 23:55.
