Nepal vs Yemen - Match Preview, Prediction
The two strongest teams in this group are UAE and Bahrain. After that, the status of Nepal and Yemen is almost the same. In the FIFA ranking, Yemen is at the 156th position while Nepal is at the 173rd position.

Playing in front of the home fans at their own time will also give Nepal an opportunity to beat Yemen and add 3 points. Nepal has not been able to win any game while playing four matches against Yemen. In 2017, Nepal's biggest achievement was a goalless draw in the Asian Cup qualifying match at Halchowk.

Therefore, this time to give hope to the supporters and players, Nepal's head coach Vincenzo Alberto Enes said that the goal is to win against Yemen and add points. "We want to win this game. We must win this game to give hope to the supporters and players. We want to add points," he said.

Similarly, captain Kiran Kumar Limbu also agreed with the coach's statement and said that the match against Yemen will be important. We are excited for the game and there is also a challenge to win. We have to win as this game is important to move on from here," said captain Kiran.

An opportunity to set a new record

In the match against Yemen, Nepal's coach Enes has already said that who plays in Nepal's first choice is also important. First-choice midfielder Locken Limbu, who played against UAE, was injured in that match and will not play against Yemen.

At present, along with captain Kiran, Rohit Chand and Anjan Bisht are the only experienced players in the Nepali team. Another experienced player Anant Tamang did not go to UAE due to injury. It is not decided whether he will play against Yemen or not.

For forward Anjan Bista, there will also be an opportunity to set a new record against Yemen. Anjan had previously equaled the record of scoring 13 goals held by former national team forwards Hari Khadka and Nirajan Rayamaji in the match against Laos. If he scores a goal against Yemen today, he will write the record in his name.

Nepal and Yemen head to head

Nepal has played four matches against Yemen so far. But no game has been won. Nepal's best performance was to hold Yemen to a goalless draw in the AFC Cup qualifying match held in Nepal in 2017.

Before that, Nepal lost 3-0 to Yemen in the Asian Cup qualifying match in 2000. Similarly, in an international friendly match in 2014, Nepal was defeated by Yemen 2-0.

Similarly, Nepal was defeated by Yemen 2-1 in the Asian Cup qualifiers in Doha in 2018.
