Preview: Vietnam vs. China - prediction, team news, lineupsSports Mole previews Tuesday's World Cup Qualifying - Asia clash between Vietnam and China, including predictions, team news and possible lineups. Despite being eliminated from World Cup 2022 contention, Vietnam can still end the hopes of China making it to the tournament when they host them on Tuesday at My Dinh National Stadium.

The Golden Star Warriors are pointless in this qualification round, losing 4-0 to Australia in their previous fixture, while the Chinese were blanked 2-0 away to Japan, and currently sit in fifth, with five points. Match preview © Reuters Although their aspirations of making the finals will soon come to an end, there are still some positives that Park Hang-Seo and his Vietnamese team can take away from this experience moving forward. This group won five fixtures to arrive at this stage, which is more victories than the national side have ever accumulated in a single World Cup qualifying campaign, a sign that maybe the program is making progress. Since November, this team have struggled in front of goal, failing to score in six of their last nine matches played in all competitions, including their previous three qualifiers. On their home field, they have done a better job at limiting their opponents opportunities, losing 1-0 to Japan, Australia and Saudi Arabia last year.

The same is the case with Vietnam who failed to register a point from two games that they played against Saudi Arabia and Australia. However, China conceded more goals than Vietnam in the initial two games. The cause of concern for both teams is their attacking inability. The teams have failed to register a goal in the two games that they have played. The Chinese hopes will be on the 22-year-old youngster Guo Tianyu from Shandong Luneng who has raked in eight goals for his team in the ongoing Chinese Premier League. China vs Vietnam: Venue Due to COVID-19, the games are moved to UAE The game between China and Vietnam will be played at Sharjah Football Stadium.

On Thursday, their defence struggled to contain the Aussies, suffering their worst defeat since being thumped 8-1 by Manchester City in a friendly back in 2015. They managed to give the Chinese a late scare in their previous encounter in October, scoring twice in the final 10 minutes to even that match at two, before the Dragon's Team broke their hearts with a goal in the 95th minute. It is now or never for China, who must win their remaining three contests, to have any hope of making it to the finals for the first time since 2002. Li Xiaopeng took over this side from Li Tie in December, and his first match in charge was a tough one to watch as his players failed to fire a single shot on target and had only 37% possession, managing a pass accuracy of 67%. The results have not been going their way in the third round, but the Chinese are still competing hard and making it difficult for the other teams in their group, suffering two defeats by a single goal and squandering a second-half lead to Oman in November, in a 1-1 draw.

Sharjah Football Stadium is a multi-purpose stadium available in the United Arab Emirates. The stadium has the capacity to accommodate 18, 000 fans on the matchday.

China have conceded eight goals in their last three road fixtures, allowing 18 shots on target over that stretch, while failing to fire a shot on goal in two of those encounters. They hold a 100% record versus Vietnam, winning all seven meetings against them, many of which were lopsided results, outscoring them by a total of 23-5.

Throughout this campaign, China have been heavily dependent on one or two players, who have drawn a lot of attention, but still managed to deliver some solid performances, although their lack of depth at every position is part of the reason why they are long shots to advance into the next round, trailing the Socceroos by nine points. Vietnam World Cup Qualifying - Asia form: Vietnam form (all competitions): China World Cup Qualifying - Asia form: Team News Nguyen Tien Linh, who did not feature for Vietnam in their defeat on Thursday, leads the team in goals in this campaign, scoring seven times, including one against China last October, with the other strike on that day coming courtesy of Ho Tan Tai. Their starting 11 versus the Aussies was almost entirely different from the side who began their previous match versus Thailand in the AFF Suzuki Cup, with Bu Tien Dung, Phan Van Duc and Nguyen Quang Hai being the only players who kept their place in the opening lineup.

Nguyen Cong Phuong needs two more caps to hit 50 for his career, while Ho Than Minh, To Van Vu, Nguyen Duc Chien and Nguyen Huu Tuan are still looking to make their first appearance for the senior side. Wu Lei is by far the biggest attacking threat for China with 12 goals in the entire qualifying campaign so far, scoring the winner late versus Vietnam in their previous match against them, as he has the second-most tallies in this World Cup qualification phase in Asia, two fewer than Ali Mabkhout of the United Arab Emirates. Lei needs just one more strike to catch Yang Xu at number two all-time for The Dragon's Team, defender Yu Dabao has notched 19 goals for his country, which puts him in a tie for 10th in Chinese history, while one more would move him even with Li Bing and Liu Haiguang. Xiaopeng made a few changes to his starting lineup against Japan with Zheng Zheng and Zhu Chenjie beginning in defence, Wang Shenchao played as a holding midfielder and Hao Junmin featured out wide, just in behind their lone striker Zhang Yuning.

Vietnam possible starting lineup:Tran; Bui, Tran Dinh, Xuan; Le, To, Hoang Duc, Vu; Phan, Tuan, Quang China possible starting lineup:Yan; Linpeng, Dabao, Browning, Zheng, Shenchao; Junmin, Xi, Jingdao; Lei, Yuning We say: Vietnam 1-3 China Vietnam might be playing with less pressure than China, knowing that there is nothing at stake for them, but the Chinese have more experience and individual quality than their opponents, who cannot seem to do much more than keep a game close for a while.
