Indonesia vs. Iraq: Where to Watch the 2023 AFC Asian Cup Live Stream

Indonesia and Iraq will meet again in the AFC Asian Cup 1st round at the Ahmad bin Ali Stadium Stadium, Al-Rayyan Monday, January 15, 2024. Here’s the preview, h2h stats, predicted line-up, TV channel info, live streaming service providers and how to watch online.

Indonesia made it to the Asian Cup after finishing second in their third round qualifying group. A convincing 7-0 win over Nepal and Jordan’s win over Kuwait (3-0) allowed Indonesia to advance. This is the first appearance of the Indonesian national team in the Asian Cup since 2007.

On the other hand, the Mesopotamian, or Iraqi, Lions punched their ticket to this tournament by finishing group runners-up behind Iran in the second qualifying phase. Ahead of the important duel in the Asian Cup, Iraq played a test match against Indonesia in November 2023, and won with a score of 5-1.

According to the latest FIFA rankings, Indonesia is ranked 146th, making them the second-lowest seeded team in the Asian Cup, only behind Hong Kong (150th). Meanwhile, Iraq is in 63rd place in the FIFA rankings.

The Indonesian national team is in the same group D as Japan, the top ranked Asian country, along with Vietnam and Iraq. This will be a big challenge for Shien Tae-yong, the coach who beat Germany in the 2018 World Cup from South Korea.

In terms of performance, Indonesia’s strength, which entered this competition with many naturalized players, still doesn’t look good. They have not won in five consecutive matches in all competitions. They have not beaten an Asian opponent since a 6-0 win over Brunei in a 2026 World Cup qualifier.

Even though their recent performance has been less than satisfactory, Indonesia has a good history of starting Asian Cup campaigns. They have never lost their opening match, while they won their first match in their previous two appearances (2004 and 2007).

As the second-highest seeded team in the group after Japan, Jesus Casas’ Iraq are expected to make it to the knockout stages of the tournament for the eighth consecutive occasion.

Last year, Jesus Casas guided the Iraqi national team to an impressive double, capturing the Arabian Cup in September and following that up with their first win in the King’s Cup.

The Asian Cup will be Casas’ first major continental tournament as head coach. He has previous coaching experience in major tournaments, acting as Luis Enrique’s assistant when Spain reached the semi-finals at Euro 2020.
