AFC Asian Cup 2019 India vs Bahrain Football Streaming: With an aim to create history, Sunil Chhetri’s men will take on Bahrain in their third and final Group A match of the AFC Asian Cup 2019 on Monday. If India manage to defeat Bahrain it will be their first entry into the second round of AFC Cup since the knockout stages were introduced. India’s best result at Asian football’s showpiece event came way back in 1964 when they finished runners-up to hosts Israel. But that was a four-nation tournament with a round robin format. Presently placed 97th in the FIFA rankings, the Indians will definitely fancy their chances against Bahrain, especially given their form against Thailand and UAE. But it will not be an easy task as Bahrain have the quality to beat the Indians. So far in the ongoing tournament, the perennial underdogs have well and truly lived up to their nickname ‘Blue Tigers’ by asking tough questions of much higher rated teams in a tough Group A despite their technical and tactical limitations. They stunned Thailand 4-1 thanks to a strong second-half performance and outplayed hosts United Arab Emirates (UAE) before their inability to convert the half a dozen chances they created came back to haunt them in a 0-2 defeat.
In the head-to-head record, India have won just one match against Bahrain in seven matches played so far between the two countries. That win (2-0) had come in an international friendly in Bahrain in October 1979 with striker Shabir Ali scoring both the goals. Bahrain have won on five occasions while one match had ended in a draw.
