In what has been a tournament punctuated with shock upsets, Qatar go into the Asian Cup final against underdogs Jordan as favourites to win the competition for a second straight time.

Winning the Asian Cup for the first time in the country's history in 2019 - defeating Japan 3-1 in the final - Qatar have the opportunity to retain their title on home soil ahead of the final of the latest edition of the tournament against Jordan.

Defending champions Qatar have enjoyed a strong tournament to date, coasting through the group stages with three wins and no goals conceded, before going on to knock out Palestine, Uzbekistan and Iran in the knockout rounds to take their place in the final.

This semi-final showdown with Iran was a thrilling affair in Doha, with Almoez Ali netting a late winner to seal a 3-2 victory for Qatar.

Silky winger Akram Afif, formerly on the books of Spanish sides Sevilla and Villarreal, has perhaps been Qatar's standout player with five goals to his name at the tournament so far.

Standing in Qatar's way of the trophy is a plucky Jordan side who have defied the odds to reach their first ever Asian Cup final.

The Jordanians only narrowly edged through the group stages in third place with one win, one draw and one loss, before launching a sensational run to the final with victories over Iraq, Tajikistan and South Korea in the knockout rounds.

Montpellier winger Mousa Al-Tamari scored a superb goal as Jordan upset two-time Asian Cup champions South Korea 2-0 in the semi-finals, a result which will give Hussein Ammouta's side confidence of going all the way in Qatar.

Although the Qataris are favourites to get over the line in front of their home crowd, there is not an awful lot between these two teams which should make for an engaging final at the Lusail Stadium.
