The Bangladesh national team match against the Lebanon in 2e ronde of the AFC 2026 World Cup Qualification on Tuesday, November 21, 2023 will be held at the Bashundhara Kings Arena Stadium, Dhaka.
Bangladesh will face Lebanon in a crucial Group I match of the AFC World Cup qualifiers at the Bashundhara Kings Arena, Dhaka, on November 21, 2023. Both teams still hope to qualify for the third round, but they must win this match to keep their chances alive.
Bangladesh and Lebanon have only met twice in previous matches in the same competition, each time in the 2011 World Cup qualifiers. Lebanon won 4-0 at home in July 2011, but Bangladesh responded with a 2-0 win in Dhaka in the second match. Then at the SAFF Championship in June 2023, Lebanon won 2-0 again through goals from Hassan Maatouk and Khalil Bader.
Bangladesh is currently in fourth place in the group with no points from three matches due to a heavy 7-0 defeat to Australia on November 16. The defeat saw them concede 10 goals and only score four goals in the last five matches.
Lebanon, on the other hand, played out a goalless draw with Palestine on the same day. This result keeps them in second place with one point from one match in the second round of qualifying for the 2026 World Cup in the Asian zone.
Lebanon will try to exploit Bangladesh’s weaknesses and steal important points away from home. They will hope Maatouk as well as Karim Darwich can find the back of the net and help their side score their first goal in three games.
This match will be a fierce battle between two teams who both have the ambition to advance to the third round. However, Lebanon may have a slight edge over Bangladesh due to their experience, quality and consistent encounter history.
